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.

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.
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.
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.

The atmosphere and everyone that I get see each day! Our teachers and customer service staff are incredible, and I love getting to know all the families that swim with us.
I love working with kids and my staff is amazing! My love for being a part of an organization that serves people enables me to be passionate about every aspect of my job, and having a staff that is so caring and fun creates a wonderful environment!
I have always loved the water and swimming. My earliest swim lesson memory is learning to float in about 2 feet of water. I grew up swimming and being around water, and when I was very young I would pretend to be a lifeguard and “rescue” my older siblings!
I have so many amazing memories at Emler. Ones that stand out are each semester getting to see the most fearful students overcome their fear and not only learning to swim, but loving it by the end of the session. My favorite memories with staff are our Summer and Christmas parties, and Lifeguard Olympics!
