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.

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 Micheala

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

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.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

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!

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

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!

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

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!
