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.

I was born and raised in the North Houston area, so this will always be home for me. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos, where I was apart 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. The Woodlands is full of people who constantly want to better themselves through health and fitness, which is what motivated me to take on an Ironman. It’s my favorite place to be! 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.

Q+A with Maclane

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

The best part of working for Emler every day is being apart 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. We’ve created a family here who cares about every child’s accomplishments and celebrates even the smallest victories.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I believe I’m a great site director because I make sure every child is taken care of and is set up for complete success in their classes. I always put the kids first in everything we do to assure they’re making progress and becoming safe, confident swimmers every time they come to lessons.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.
My favorite memories of swim lessons were back when I was three learning to swim for the first time. I’ve never had a bad experience in the water and can still clearly remember my favorite pink and white Minnie Mouse swim suit 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!
What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

My favorite memory at Emler so far has been working with kids who have experienced a water-related incident that has left them fearful of the water. I worked with a young girl that had a traumatic experience and after 8-9 months of never giving up, she finally learned to swim independently again and actually developed a love for the water that replaced her fear. The opportunity to change a child’s perspective of the water and show them how much fun swimming can be while also assuring their safety is one of my favorite parts about working here.
