Frequently Asked Questions

What are you doing to keep everyone safe and healthy?

Safety has always been and will continue to be #1 at Emler. We’re doing what we’ve always done – followed or exceeded all local, state and federal guidelines – to protect not just your family but our employees as well.

We’re using CDC recommended cleaning products to wipe the facility every 30 minutes, and making hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available. Instructors are wearing face shields in the pool, and we are requiring all adults out of the water to wear face coverings over their mouths and noses. Kids are not required to wear masks in the pool but those over the age of 2 are encouraged to wear them while they are not in a lesson.

We are allowing only one caretaker to accompany each little fishy, and chairs in the observation room and on the pool deck are spaced 6 feet apart. Employees are monitoring traffic in and out of the building to remind people about social distancing. Plus, we are taking staff temperatures within 5 minutes of the beginning of a shift. There is more information on our Health & Safety Protocols page.

Are pools safe to swim in during COVID?

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.

Do parents or children have to wear masks in the pool?

No one has to wear a mask in the water. Masks in the water are unsafe, which is why we would never require them. Plus, masks are ineffective when they’re wet. Our instructors instead wear face shields in the water.

All adults, including employees and caretakers, out of the water are required to wear a face covering over their noses and mouths. Kids are not required to wear a mask out of the water. However, children over the age of 2 are encouraged to wear a covering over their mouth and nose when entering and exiting the building or if they are not actively participating in a lesson.

What are your class ratios?

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.

Heidi Morse

I grew up in Garland, TX, and learned to swim at age 5. After that, I was at the pool all the time and taught swim lessons every summer for the Red Cross until I was 14.  During high school, my family moved several times to places including Nairobi, Kenya; Woodstock, GA; and Owasso, OK. I continued to travel while I attended Harding University earning my degree in Public Relations. In 2008, I finally settled down in Austin with my husband, a native Pflugervillian, and we now have two beautiful girls. After working in higher education with students with disabilities for 11 years I needed a change in my career. I found Emler by accident and knew this was the place for me instantly!

Q+A with Heidi

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?
Talking to the kids as they come in to swim and getting to hear about their day. They have such excitement about being at lessons and love for their teachers, it’s impossible not to smile all day.
What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I love swimming and kids, but most importantly I truly believe in the mission of Emler. Helping kids learn to swim to be safer in the water is so important where we live. If I can be a part of that journey in any small way, and keep that as my focus, I believe I can be a successful Site Director.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

My earliest memory is learning to swim and volunteering to teach others to swim every summer with the Red Cross. My entire family would be at the pool from 7 am to 12 pm having a great time with the other kid volunteers – it was the best part of summer.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

I have so many great memories but my favorite is when I was brand new and learning how to be a teacher. I had a class of Aquatots (3yr olds) who were all a little different in their reactions to the water: one loved it, one hated it and one wouldn’t talk to me. It took weeks of themes, smiles, and high fives but my heart soared when every single kiddo swam the entire distance with their eyes in, jumped in, and loved it, and the parents cheered from the side. It was such a heartfelt moment.

Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

I was a shy child growing up so speaking in public was very hard for me unless I was with friends and family. In middle school, we had to start giving oral presentations in front of the class which was embarrassing for me and my face would turn red every time I would talk. I worked really hard one year to control my fear and reactions to being in front of people – it finally paid off. I felt so proud the day I could give a presentation in 7th grade without my face turning bright red.
