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.

How To Prepare Your Kids For a Lifetime of Swimming Safety
1. Start teaching kids water safety early.
Teaching kids to swim needs to happen as early as possible to prevent the risk of accidental drowning. Formal swim lessons result in an 88% reduction in drowning risk for children ages 1 to 4, studies have found, and children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates, according to the CDC. At Emler Swim School, safety is our top priority and why we are so passionate about teaching swim lessons. We want to empower children and their families with the water safety information they need to protect themselves.
2. Teach kids in a supportive environment.
Evidence tells us that children learn best in encouraging, supportive environments. At Emler Swim School, we create a warm, safe atmosphere to help children feel free to explore and try new things that may scare them initially. We know some children find the water daunting and we want to do everything we can not only to help them feel comfortable in the water but also enjoy swimming and playing in the pool.
3. Make swimming lessons fun with positive reinforcement.
Songs, games and playing make-believe are part of the curriculum. Progress is measured and milestones are celebrated, both big and small. Through encouraging words and high-fives during every class, learning to swim is as fun as possible. While safety is our number one priority, students also learn a love for the water.
4. Repetition, repetition, repetition.
Just like any skill or sport, perfect practice makes perfect. In the case of water safety, proper swimming and safety skills become muscle memory. The more a child is doing a specific activity, the more it becomes an instant reaction. If a little one finds themself unexpectedly in water, it is ideal for their instincts and muscle memory to take over without much conscious effort. One of the most popular lesson days at Emler is when the kids jump in the pool with all their clothes on so they know what it feels like to be in water in something other than bathing suits. They then turn around to the wall for a safe exit.
5. Celebrate progress!
Both small and large achievements are celebrated, as mentioned earlier. For some kids, putting their face in the water is a big step forward, so we recognize and applaud this. We have informal and formal ways of marking progress, from showering the little swimmers with praise to providing ribbons of completion at the end of a level. At Emler, swimming is made as fun and rewarding as possible while teaching the basics of water safety so all the kiddos feel confident around water.
Even from a young age, Callie has always had a very energetic and playful personality. Callie attended a fine arts Elementary school where she found her love for dance and performing which she now channels into fun swim lessons.
Callie first found Emler Swim School in October of 2013 when she was hired as a swim teacher at the Frisco Location. At the time, she was studying Ecology at the University of North Texas. While teaching at Frisco, she was promoted to a Waterbabies and Mentor teacher. In 2016 Emler expanded to Flower Mound, where Callie transferred, becoming one of Flower Mound’s first teachers! After graduating college, Callie entered the Manager in Training program and she was later promoted to Customer Service Manager, and then Site Director.
“I’ve always loved working at Emler, and this is by far the most fun job I have ever had! I’ve been lucky to watch Emler Swim School grow, and I am excited to see what the future holds for this location!”
In Callie’s off time, she loves being outdoors bird watching, hiking, tending to her garden, or spending time with her boyfriend and their dog Vader.
Q+A with Callie
What is the best part about working for Emler every day?
The best part of working for Emler is seeing a child overcome a fear of the water and develop a true love of swimming. I love to see children becoming water safe and have fun while doing so!
What do you believe makes you a great site director?
Starting as a Manager-In-Training and working my way up through the ranks has really given me the opportunity to experience each position first hand here at Emler. I have been in each role including Teacher, Deck Manager, Customer Service Rep, and Aquatic Director. This really helps me understand all of the employees at the site, as well as have insight with the swimmers and parents.
What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?
Truly I have too many to recount, but one that stands out to me is when one of our 3-year-old swimmers finally learned to hold his breath, overcome his fear, and swim on his own. He started in our 3-year-old program but was too nervous to swim without a parent. We ended up moving him back into the Waterbabies program and had his dad get in with him. He stayed in the Waterbabies program for 2 semesters and got more and more comfortable in each class. After about 6 months, he finally was able to swim on his own! Seeing the joy and confidence of not only the child but the parents as well was such a wonderful moment. It’s stories like theirs that make me love what I do.
Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.
In 5th grade, my mom finally let me take lessons to learn competitive strokes. My swim coach, Ms. Rebecca, was such an awesome teacher and I was able to learn all 4 strokes in one summer. My favorite was the butterfly and I remember Ms. Rebecca being so impressed that I was able to swim butterfly because most of the other kids my age had the most trouble with that stroke. I went on to become a flyer in late middle school and all of high school.
Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.
In first grade, my dad took me swimming at the community pool and there was a high dive there. I wanted to jump from it but first had to prove to the lifeguard that I could swim the entire length of the pool, including in the 15 ft. deep end. After passing my swim test, the lifeguard let both my dad and me climb up to the top. My dad dove off first and waited for me at the bottom, treading water and encouraging me to jump. I got to the edge and looked down and instantly got scared. It was so much higher than it looked! After a pep talk from my dad, and a long count to 10, I took the leap and jumped feet first into the deep end! It was so much fun and I spent the rest of the summer jumping over and over!
Q+A with Collin
Why do you love working with kids?
Kids are just so fun! No two days of work are alike and no two children are alike either. I appreciate their honesty and playfulness, and I love being apart of their journey through swim lessons!
What do you enjoy outside of working at Emler?
When I’m not at work you will find me spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, and cuddling with my German Shepard dog, Claire!
