We know that your kiddo loves spending time at the pool at Emler Swim School, and you would love to be able to have more time to practice skills with your child – that’s where Swim Station comes in! You can easily book time in the water so you and your child can have some one-on-one time in the water together.
This is not a class, and you will not have a teacher there with you – this is just time for you and your child to utilize our year-round heated pools at Emler so you can practice skills together. Please note that it is a requirement for an adult guardian to enter the pool per swimmer during your Swim Station time slot.

Yes, it’s safe to be in pools! According to the CDC, there is no evidence that the coronavirus can spread through properly maintained pools. We’ve always valued health and safety, which is why we already had a top-of-the-line purification system with UV lights that kills and inactivates viruses and bacteria in addition to using proper chlorine levels. Every Emler pool meets or exceeds CDC health standards. Plus, our leading-edge air filtration systems replace stale air from the facility with fresh air 8 times per hour.
We’ve always had small class sizes of 3-4 kiddos, as well as private lessons, and nothing has changed. We now offer the option to form your own private group with family, friends or neighbors you know. Additionally, another option is the parent & child class, with appropriate spacing between families in the pool, where kids receive instruction from a teacher on the deck. We are monitoring and strictly adhering to all local, state and federal guidelines regarding levels of occupancy and the number of people that are allowed in gatherings so we can continue to be the healthiest, happiest pool in town.
You can get in touch with us in many different ways – call 855-232-2006, fill out this form or sit in on a virtual live information session that guarantees there won't be any phone tag.

Teaching kids to swim needs to happen as early as possible to prevent the risk of accidental drowning. Formal swim lessons result in an 88% reduction in drowning risk for children ages 1 to 4, studies have found, and children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates, according to the CDC. At Emler Swim School, safety is our top priority and why we are so passionate about teaching swim lessons. We want to empower children and their families with the water safety information they need to protect themselves.
Evidence tells us that children learn best in encouraging, supportive environments. At Emler Swim School, we create a warm, safe atmosphere to help children feel free to explore and try new things that may scare them initially. We know some children find the water daunting and we want to do everything we can not only to help them feel comfortable in the water but also enjoy swimming and playing in the pool.
Songs, games and playing make-believe are part of the curriculum. Progress is measured and milestones are celebrated, both big and small. Through encouraging words and high-fives during every class, learning to swim is as fun as possible. While safety is our number one priority, students also learn a love for the water.
Just like any skill or sport, perfect practice makes perfect. In the case of water safety, proper swimming and safety skills become muscle memory. The more a child is doing a specific activity, the more it becomes an instant reaction. If a little one finds themself unexpectedly in water, it is ideal for their instincts and muscle memory to take over without much conscious effort. One of the most popular lesson days at Emler is when the kids jump in the pool with all their clothes on so they know what it feels like to be in water in something other than bathing suits. They then turn around to the wall for a safe exit.
Both small and large achievements are celebrated, as mentioned earlier. For some kids, putting their face in the water is a big step forward, so we recognize and applaud this. We have informal and formal ways of marking progress, from showering the little swimmers with praise to providing ribbons of completion at the end of a level. At Emler, swimming is made as fun and rewarding as possible while teaching the basics of water safety so all the kiddos feel confident around water.
Hi, I’m Corbie! I am originally from Seminole, FL which is a city about 30 minutes away from Tampa, FL. My childhood home had a pool and was a short bicycle ride away from the beach. So, naturally I fell in love with swimming. I graduated from Seminole High School and later from St. Petersburg College with my Bachelors of Science Business Administration. I love to go bowling and golfing in my spare time.
The culture at Emler is so warm and inviting. The ability to teach a life-saving skill such as swimming allows us to be so proud of the work we do. It makes it seem as though it’s not “work” at all.
The attention to detail needed to keep a pristine facility in immaculate condition as well as the ability to filter our core values onto our staff, customers, and students. I am only as great as my customers/students are happy.
My most memorable experience with swim lessons was being dropped off the high dive board with my mom following behind me. That was such an impactful moment in my life I still remember it to this day. Swim lessons have come a long way since the late 90’s. I am so thankful to be a part of an organization that does not practice any outdated unsafe practices.
My favorite memory working at Emler was the first moment I experienced the “Leap of Faith” from a student. The moment that the 13-month old came out of the water with a grin on their face because they went into the water by themselves was so rewarding. I hope to see this many more times.
My oh my! What a question. Ever since I could remember I have always loved working with kids, even as a kid. Through school I would always want to play teacher and help my friends with EVERYTHING! I started babysitting at 13 and have been surrounded by kids since. Working with kids is such a magical thing, they are able to make my day with just a smile. Overall, knowing that maybe one day I can make a special memory for the kiddos who swim with us makes me want to be my best everyday at work.
If you believe it or not, outside of work I love to be in the water! Whether I am floating the river or paddle boarding at the lake, you can always find me doing something in the water. I am a huge Disney and Marvel fan, so come up and ask me about all my theories! Though I am an avid reader, all my book club friends judge me for reading off my phone… What can I say? I am a Gen-Zer.
