Frequently Asked Questions


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.

How To Prepare Your Kids For a Lifetime of Swimming Safety

1. Start teaching kids water safety early.

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.

2. Teach kids in a supportive environment.

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.

3. Make swimming lessons fun with positive reinforcement.

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.

4. Repetition, repetition, repetition.

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.

5. Celebrate progress!

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.

Corbie Wilson

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 Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I love to go bowling and golfing in my spare time.

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?
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.
What do you believe makes you a great site director?

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.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

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.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

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.

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

When I was in preschool, I went on a field trip to the local park. My group ended up leaving without me, so I was stranded in the park. Luckily, I was a very sociable preschooler. I went to any nearby people who were in the park with their kids and luckily someone did have a cellphone to contact my parents. At this time, cell phones weren’t as popular as they are today; so it did take me a while to find someone who could help me. I will always remain calm under pressure because escalating the issue will only make things worse.

Why do you love working with kids?

I have worked with kids and been kids almost my whole life and I love watching their personalities develop and come into their own. It is also so rewarding to see the progress and growth they make week after week, both in and outside of swimming!

What do you enjoy doing outside of working at Emler?

Outside of working at Emler, I am a huge bookworm! I love any opportunity to curl up with a good book. Another favorite hobby of mine is puzzles! I try to do at least one 1000 piece puzzle every month!
