Our Proven Approach.

As an award-winning swim school with more than 40 years of experience, we’re proud to be the only swim school with a 100% swimmer guarantee. That only happens through a proven, ever-evolving curriculum, a quality staff that undergoes one of the most thorough training programs in the nation, and – above all else – a passion to nurture children in a healthy, safe and fun environment.

We were founded on the principle that every child has the ability to swim, and it’s our calling to help them discover that ability. To do that successfully, we employ a proven semester-based, year-round approach that integrates child development best practices. By providing your child with consistent opportunities to apply their skills, and positive reinforcement to encourage accomplishment, your child will learn to become a safer swimmer.

Our Founder

At the age of 13, our founder and swim-school pioneer, Jan Emler, started her career as a lifeguard and swim instructor at her local YWCA. From that early age, she saw a need for a more focused and nurturing approach to teaching children to swim. After more than 40 years, we still hold dear to her founding principles to teach every child to become a better, safer swimmer.

We Are On a Mission.

Tragically, drowning is the leading cause of accidental deaths of children under the age of five in the United States. Every year we see too many headlines about young children drowning, primarily in backyard pools. That’s why Emler is on a mission to keep children safer by giving them the gift of a lifetime of water safety.
