Want more time in the pool at Emler to practice swimming? Swim Stations are here for you!

Click here to Book a Swim Station!

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.

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.

She started her career at Emler Swim School of Austin-Westlake in March of 2014 as a Manager-in-Training while she finished her degree at the at University of Texas in Austin. After graduation, she accepted the Interim Customer Service Manager position at Emler Westlake, and was quickly named Customer Service Manager at the end of the summer. In August of 2016, Amanda was promoted to Site Director for the Westlake location. “I always wanted a career where I would wake up and be excited to walk into work! Emler Swim School provides such a fun and friendly workplace where you can build amazing relationships with your customers and the children you teach,” Amanda said. “Not only am I able to work with an incredible staff, but I am also able to impact the San Antonio community in such a profound way by teaching children to be safe in the water. I honestly feel so lucky that I stumbled upon this company!”

In her personal time, Amanda adores spending time with her son Cameron and visiting family in Seguin and New Braunfels, Texas.

She is a huge Texas Longhorn fan, and during football and basketball season don’t be surprised to see her sporting Longhorn gear and using “Hook ‘Em” as part of her everyday vocabulary.

Q+A with Amanda

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

My favorite part about coming into work every day is getting the chance to hold babies, see the staff members that I love, and being able to make a difference in so many ways. I’ve always said that this is the only job where I have always been excited to come into work!

 

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

The love for my staff and genuine empathy I have for everyone in the facility is what makes me a great Site Director. To me, emotional intelligence is incredibly important to be successful in an upper management role.

 

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

Believe it or not, I was the screaming-bloody-murder-please-don’t-put-me-in-the-water child when I was in swim lessons. Over time and through many swim lessons, I finally fell in love with the water. My favorite memory from swim lessons was when I finally gained my confidence and got the chance to show my mom everything that I learned. I felt so accomplished! My mother continually reminds me now of how ironic it is that I run a swim school, but it helps me empathize with nervous students and their parents to help overcome their fear of water.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

I had my son within my first year of working for Emler, and I had so much support from my entire team (including the corporate office). I received emails of congratulations, hand-me-downs from upper-level managers, and even a sweet baby shower gift! It meant so much to me to have a team that was so supportive during a huge change in my life. Now, I feel like my son Cameron is a part of the Emler family too!!

 

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

I used to be very introverted and shy when I was younger, so it was a challenge to build relationships and make friends. When I was a Junior in high school, I had to perform an opening and closing ceremony before thousands of people. To say the least, I definitely overcame my stage fright and became a confident public speaker. It actually became one of my favorite parts of any job! Emler has given me so many opportunities to do what I love and enhance my skills to become a better Site Director, team player, and person.

Q+A with Roger

Why do you love working with kids?

I love working with kids because I know the job we do is so important to their health and safety. We have the chance to have a direct impact on so many young lives in and out of the water and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

What do you enjoy doing outside of Emler?
I spend my time after Emler spoiling my pupper named Samantha with fetch, treats, and hikes!
