Frisco families are lucky to have many fantastic options for children’s activities. You name it, you can find it here in Frisco! But each of our family’s time, budget, and Uber capabilities can only stretch so far. With so many great choices, we have to prioritize.
If you’re only going to pick one activity for your kids this year, swimming lessons at Emler should be on the top of your list.
Emler Swim School has been part of the fabric of our community for more than 10 years, with its first Preston Road location having opened in 2010 followed by a new West Frisco location in 2018. The school has taught thousands of Frisco kids to love swimming and prioritize safety.
This fall, Emler is introducing a new virtual program, EmlerSWIM@Home. This will be an innovative option for Frisco families and will allow Emler to reach more students than ever before.
Emler Swim School brings together exercise, safety, education, fun, and value in one short weekly commitment! Here are just some of the reasons why swim lessons at Emler are the ultimate extracurricular activity for Frisco kids:
Swimming Success, Guaranteed
At Emler, 99% of all students learn to swim alone during the first semester that they’re enrolled. The school has a proven curriculum with fun, engaging techniques. Emler is great for first-time swimmers, experienced kids looking to improve technique, and everyone in between.
Classes start as young as two months (!) and have multiple tiered levels to make sure your child’s class is a perfect fit.
Emler instructors love what they do – and it shows. Emler maintains very low student to teacher ratios, with no more than four students per instructor. As a parent, I love the “small class approach” at Emler. Kids benefit from the social, collaborative, and competitive aspects of a class while still receiving tons of personal attention.
Water safety is a top priority for parents and a key focus of Emler’s approach. At Emler, water safety is blended into every step of instruction and quickly becomes part of the way students swim.
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 Swim School is on a mission to keep children safer by giving them the gift of a lifetime…water safety.

Fun and Friendship
Emler uses an engaging, energetic approach to keep kids coming back for more. From songs and props in the baby classes to games and encouragement for older kids, Emler is all about fun!
The instructors at Emler know kids learn better when they’re happy and relaxed. And swimming and safety are just the beginning of the educational benefits at Emler.
Little swimmers learn to overcome water fear, follow instructions, and separate happily from parents in a trust-building environment. Older kids learn to socialize, take turns, and encourage each other. It’s a great place to meet friends, tackle challenges, and learn independence.
Investment in the Future
As parents, we have a lot of different motivations when picking extracurricular activities. We want our kids to learn, to be entertained, to be challenged, and to develop meaningful skills.
Swim lessons at Emler check every imaginable box! A fun activity that kids will actually want to do? (Check!) Learning an important life skill that can also become a lifetime sport and passion? (Check!). A way for kids to be active, burn off energy and develop an interest in fitness (check, check, check!).
Swimming lessons build confidence, enhance social skills, and encourage goal-setting. They also set kids up for a variety of other great life experiences (from ease at pool parties to swim team, to exploring other hobbies like snorkeling and scuba).
Swimming lessons aren’t necessarily the cheapest extra-curricular activity you can find but they are truly an investment in every aspect of your child’s development.
Ease and Convenience
And let’s not forget the scheduling factor! We all know that Frisco families have packed schedules with tons of classes, practices, meetings, and commitments. The beauty of swim lessons? They’re only 30 minutes long and only once a week.
Even better, Emler offers tons of scheduling options on weekdays, evenings, and weekends. They’re to offer a class at a time that works well for your family’s busy schedule.
So many activities these days require major commitments of time (for kids and parents). Lessons at Emler are one small box on the calendar that makes a BIG difference in your child’s life!
Recently, Emler has introduced a brand new offering – Emler SWIM@Home. This innovative program is designed to offer Emler-quality instruction and support in your home or community pool.
Emler SWM@Home includes easy-to-use videos and features private, one-on-one training, and weekly video calls with an Emler Expert Trainer.
Emler SWIM@Home families will also be able to join a private Facebook group for parents in the program so they connect, share tips, and enjoy the benefits of an online community with other parents with same age children and Emler Expert teachers.
