2021 Best of Bedford Awards - Swimming Instructor

We are happy to announce that Mark`s Swim Academy has been selected as the Winner for the 2021 Best of Bedford Awards in the category of Swimming Instructor. Notice to other winners in Waltham is happening over the next few weeks. The entire list of winners will be posted on our website after all recipients have been contacted.

See below.

All classes are taught by an experienced Swim Instructor, Mark Roizman, owner of Mark's Swim Academy, in Bedford, MA.

Roizman has been teaching swimming for more than 30 years, both in the United States and in Moldova (the former Soviet Union). He has a Master’s degree in physical education from the Pedagogical University of Moldova.

Roizman teaches individuals anywhere from six months old to adults. Instead of breaking things down into age groups, Roizman separates his clients into levels depending on their ability. He teaches front curl (freestyle), backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and flip turns.

“The most important thing about working with kids is that you have to love them. You have to teach them step by step, and you can’t jump over things. The most important thing that I can tell people is that I start with the basics and work my way up when I teach.”

“Swimming is a special sport. It is one of those sports where you can’t start and stop because then there is a good possibility that the fear of the water will come back. It is important to introduce things to people and never push. People will learn quickly if you teach on their individual level rather than teaching at your pace.”

The Bedford Award Program purpose to support and offer public recognition of the contributions of businesses and organizations in and around Waltham. It is your option to have us send you one of the 2021 Awards that have been designed for display at your business. As an Award recipient, there is no membership obligation.
