Our Advanced swim lesson polishes your students skills that they have previously accomplished in the lower Jeff Ellis Swimming levels. At the advanced level, swimmers will be able to complete at least 100 yards of freestyle, back stroke and breast stroke- just to name a few. Our Advanced level is also a pre-requisite for competitive swimming.
