Frequently Asked Questions

 

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.

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 can I learn more about swim lessons?

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. We host them on Zoom at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central, Monday through Thursday. You can have your camera turned on or off, whatever you're most comfortable with! Sign up here.

Q+A with Maci

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?

Seeing smiling faces everyday from staff and students. Emler is such a happy and fun place to be.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I absolutely love to see people grow and help them along their journey. It’s my favorite thing! Whether it is a teacher or manager learning the business or a student learning to swim. Helping people is so much fun. I think that in loving to see people be their best versions will help me to be a great site director.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I spent most of my childhood on the lake and at the beach with my grandparents. Being able to swim was such an important safety skill for us. So they taught me how to be safe around water and how to self rescue. This made summers fun on my grandpa’s boat and knee boarding with my cousins.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?
I have been so fortunate to have many wonderful moments with Emler. I think my favorite personal moment that stands out is from my birthday this year. We had a training weekend so I worked on my birthday but the staff went above and beyond to make me feel special. They had food and cake and sang happy birthday to me in a special Emler way. It was great.
Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

When I was about 3 years old we were at the public swimming pool. My brother who was older jumped in from the deep end. I followed him in jumping off the diving board and sank straight to the bottom. I was very fortunate to have family near by and after my parents teaching me the basics I was back in the water having fun in no time.
