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:
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.

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.
I love meeting new families, talking with children and building those relationships. I never know each day what I will learn about someone’s life. I especially love watching children accomplish new things! The experience of swimming is a beautiful thing to share.
I love supporting staff and creating a space for growth and new experiences. Learning as a team is very important to me – learning together, growing together, serving together. I have a passion for helping people and feel that being a Site Director is a perfect way for me to do what fills my heart. Even the inevitable challenges are opportunities to learn and grow.
My twin and I spent the day with our dad at the public pool, our feet dangling in the pool, splashing a little. We were tired and probably sun-kissed, eating Chik-O-Stiks and drinking Mountain Dew while the sun got lower and lower in the sky. A fun-filled day of playing in the water!
My favorite memory working at Emler (so far) was one of our trainings when the team was together having fun, learning, growing and laughing. I think about the laughter all the time!
When I was little, I was the one who never wanted to jump in the water or get her face wet. My sister and I were at the large indoor high school pool that had a big diving board. I knew how to swim by then but had never jumped from that high. It took me a long, long time to get the nerve to jump but I finally did it! And of course, I did it again and again after that!
I love working with kids because they bring so much joy and fun when you are around them. I love watching them grow and watching their successes.
I love to spend my time with my son or being active outdoors or the gym.
