Emler swim lessons are fully guaranteed, and we are committed to delivering a world class swim lesson and experience. We promise to do whatever it takes to ensure your child achieves the goals of the session in a positive, nurturing, and safe environment. In support of the Emler Guarantee and commitment, Emler continually invests in our facilities and equipment. Likewise, we commit significant resources to training our teachers and staffing each class for the entire semester as well as the next class level in subsequent semesters, so your child has a path to continuous improvement. As a result of these commitments, Emler’s lessons are non-refundable with only ONE exception:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hi there Katy families! My name is Maclane Fulvio, or Mac/Ms. Mac for short. I am so excited to be the site director of our new Katy location. This will be my fourth location to work for in the Houston area so far, and I can’t wait to meet you all! I attended Texas State University in San Marcos, where I was a part of the McCoy Business school and earned my B.A. in Marketing. Shortly after earning my degree, I moved back home to Houston to be back with my family. I was a competitive swimmer for most of my life, but my biggest accomplishment was completing Ironman Texas in 2015 and earning the ROKA First Out of Water award. I’ve been teaching kids to swim for 10 years now, and it will always be one of my biggest passions. My goal is to make sure every child that walks through our doors learns life-saving skills that will keep them safe in and around the water, as well as develop a love for it!
The best part of working for Emler every day is a tie between working with the kids and being a part of an amazing team! When a child accomplishes a new skill they’ve been working on or learns to let go and swim independently for the first time, it feels like a win for everyone in the building. Seeing a child gain confidence in themselves is such an incredible journey to watch and be able to be a part of. We’ve created a family here who cares about every child’s accomplishments and celebrates even the smallest victories.
What makes me a great site director is our mission for our kids and families that I keep near and dear to my heart! I always put the kids first in everything we do to ensure they’re making progress and becoming safe, confident swimmers every time they come to lessons. I want to make sure that our families are creating wonderful memories at the pool, lake or ocean, and never need to worry about their children’s safety.
My favorite memories at Emler will always be working with children who have experienced a water-related incident that has left them fearful of the water. I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with several of these children and ensure that they will never have an incident again, as well as teach them to develop a healthy relationship and love for the water. The opportunity to change a child’s perspective of the water and show them how much fun swimming can be, while also ensuring their safety, is one of my favorite parts of working at Emler.
My favorite memories of swim lessons were back when I was three and learning to swim for the first time. I can still clearly remember my favorite pink and white Minnie Mouse swimsuit that would give me good luck and getting to dive down to the bottom of the pool for rings at the end of class as a reward!
When I was in summer league at 6 years old I had to learn how to dive off of a block for the first time. My coaches would bring out this big wooden box to practice off of in the deep end, and I can remember them spending what felt like hours with me every afternoon for a week trying to get me to dive off of it the right way. I have a fear of heights, so any elevated surface on the side of the pool felt like the top of a mountain! I can remember my legs shaking so bad as I tried to lean over in the starting position to dive off into the water and just crying from fear of it hurting or falling in the wrong way. Luckily my coaches were very calm and supportive and finally got me to take the jump in the right diving position. After that first time doing it the right way, I realized it wasn’t so bad at all and actually…. kind of fun!
I love working with kids because every day is a new adventure to them, getting to share that joy they feel about the world and people around them is such a gratifying experience.
Outside of Emler I love cheering on my favorite teams, The Dallas Stars and The Cowboys, painting, and spending time outdoors.
