Rosalie Simeone, under the name Safety First Training Services is a Canadian Red Cross Training Partner.
SFTS offers Red Cross Swim Preschool, and Red Cross SwimKids programs.
All instruction is one-on-one, based on the needs, talents, and preferences of each person. Please follow the links to Red Cross Swim newsletters for specific information about the Red Cross Programs that SFTS offers.
Our program continuum, Red Cross Swim, is built on three pillars:
- Swimming: Participants learn the five main swimming strokes (front crawl, back crawl, elementary back stroke, breast stroke, and sidestroke) and develop effective stroke techniques using logical progressions and proven teaching strategies.
- Skills and Water Safety: Based on our research, most drownings that occur are preventable incidents. Our skills and water safety knowledge components focus on self-rescue skills and safe behaviour to prevent injuries.
- Fitness: Each program level includes activities to build endurance and promote individual success while encouraging lifelong physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.
