Swim Lessons

Swim Lesson Registration for Session 2 (July 6-16) will open June 18 at 12 p.m.  We will be expanding our options for group swim classes with a 1:4 student-to-teacher ratio to meet distancing guidelines and spots will be added if Oregon Health Authority guidelines permit.
Due to reductions in staffing, and availability of the swim lesson program, registrations are only being taken through the online registration system ActiveNet. Registrations will not be taken over the phone or in-person. Please review the following information to learn how swim lessons will be organized and which program to register for based on your swimmer’s abilities. 
Openings for swim lessons will be limited in class numbers to meet Oregon Health Authority guidelines related to COVID-19. Exceptions cannot be made once swim sessions are full.  It is suggested that registrants sign up for the waitlist option in the event that additional spaces in swim classes can be opened.
Starfish Swimming Curriculum places students by age and skill levels organized by color.  Please use the following chart to determine what level your swimmer should placed in.  At the time of registration you will need to select which school and color level to place your swimmer.

If you have any questions please contact our swim lesson coordinator Meredith Yox meredith.yox@ashland.or.us.
