About Cari

Cari Lopez has been teaching children from coast to coast to swim since 2005. She teaches throughout the year in Arizona, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. Cari is honored to be part of the Infant Aquatics team and to add this valuable technique to her repertoire of skills. She is passionate when it comes to infant swimming and water safety. Cari has a gift of recognizing the differences in each child and teaches to each individual's need.

Cari is no stranger to the water. Born and raised in Arizona, she spent most of her childhood in the pool. Cari also swam competitively for more than 10 years. She is the proud mother of two beautiful girls, one with special needs. As the parent of a special needs child, Cari has a soft place in her heart for children with disabilities. Her patience and compassion coupled with a fun-loving sense of humor, is what keeps her students coming back year after year.

As a highly-trained instructor, Cari's background offers a wide variety of teaching techniques. This allows her to fulfill her ultimate goal of providing each child with a positive water experience while teaching the necessary principles to be safe in and around water.
