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.

Q+A with Austin

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

My staff… I love working with my management team, my teachers, and my customer service staff every day here at Emler. They are amazing with our families, and I really enjoy working with them through our training and mentoring programs to continuously improve in everything that we do. We only bring the very best in to our family of Emler employees, and I am proud to work side-by-side with them to teach all of our swimmers how to be exceptional in the water. Go team!

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I think my team likes having me as their site director because it is important to me to really be present at the site and involved in the day-to-day activities. I want to be available to my families and to my team for whatever they need – and I will never turn down the opportunity to do the right thing for everyone under my roof.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I learned how to swim from a family friend in a backyard pool, and I distinctively remember when I was finally ready to jump off of the diving board – and it was amazing!! It reminds me of the excitement and the joy that our Emler families have when their swimmer gets to go down our big slide for the first time. It’s a big event and a reason to celebrate!

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

My favorite memories about working here at Emler has to be that moment when they each figure out that THEY CAN DO IT, THEY CAN SWIM! It is such a rewarding and beautiful moment when our swimmers realize that they can move through the water on their own despite the initial fear or anxiety.

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

I took classical piano lessons for 13 years and actually learned how to read music before I learned how to read! As a young child, I was very nervous about playing in recitals or in competitions, but my teacher – who was also a professor at a local university – was really great about encouraging me and supporting me through each performance. She would attend many of my competitions, waiting in the hallway as I went in to play in front of the judges and then celebrating things with a big hug afterwards. She taught me how to be confident even in moments of stress and how to be proud of my work even if it wasn’t perfect.

Why do you love working with kids?
The reason I love working with kids is that I love making a difference in their lives. Surprisingly, they’ve all made a difference in my life and to this day I am beyond grateful. My love and passion for working with kids has only grown ever since I started.
What do you enjoy doing outside of Emler?
Something I enjoy outside of Emler is dance. Every now and then I’ll find myself free-styling and working on my technique to be better than I was before. Dance has a major impact on me and it’s like second nature!

Why do you love working with kids?
I love being able to teach kids the tools that they need. Teaching kids to become water-safe and learning to save their own lives brings me joy every single day. They say you’ll never work a day in your life if you do what you love, and I feel that way at Emler daily!
What do you enjoy doing outside of Emler?
I love reading and going to the park with my husband and our two cocker spaniels. I’m always working on something and am passionate about making our planet a better place.
