Swim Stations

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.

Q+A with Blair

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

I love the atmosphere we have at Emler. Everyone is always smiling and laughing which brings joy to facility. I also enjoy seeing how many lives we save daily by teaching swim lessons. It’s not every day you get to talk about how you are making an impact by teaching a life saving skill.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

My staff! They are by far the best group of people I have ever worked with. It’s not very often that you can walk into a workplace and have everyone yell your name and ask you how your day is going! We genuinely care for each other like family, which rubs off onto all of our children that walk through the door.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I have always been a fish in the water. Every summer I would swim for the Greatwood Gators and I actually won “Most Improved” when I was 6! My favorite job was when I coached for the Greatwood Geysers. The love for the water has always been in my veins, but coaching really secured my future passion and what I want to do for the rest of my life!

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

I love seeing our swimmers walk up to their parents and say, “I don’t want to leave.” We care for our families just like they are our own, which makes working at Emler like a never-ending family reunion.

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

Schlitterbahn and I have had some memories. One of which is when I was 9, I went into the “lazy river” with my brother and was dragged under the water by the current that comes from the “Boogie Bahn”. There were so many tubes in the river that I could not stand up and catch my breath. Luckily a man saw me under his tube, grabbed my arm and pulled me up for air. I am always a little bit wary when I get into a lazy river, but I am never going to let my fears hold me back from having fun!

Q+A with Megan

Why do you love working with kids?
I enjoy working with kids because of their personalities and individual characteristics. I also love to educate them and help them be successful.
What do you enjoy outside of working at Emler?
Outside of Emler, I participate in softball leagues and tournaments. I am also an owner of a wide variety of pets so I enjoy spending time taking care of them.
