The pool is open for the season. The swim team is using it M-F from 4pm-7pm for practice, but as a homeowner if you would like to use the pool a lane will be made available for you.
Do you have a tween or teen (or even a younger child whose parent is willing to work with them April 17 until morning swim team starts and then after swim team morning practices end, plus here and there during the swim team season (e.g. Raging Waters Day, etc.)) who’s looking for a first job and a way to make some additional money this summer? Do you want to help them learn responsibility and accountability outside of your own home?
Here’s a great opportunity! Our cabana club pool needs to have the covers removed during the summer swim season just before 8 a.m. and put back on at 10 p.m. Ideally, your responsible kid would team with a friend (who would also be paid) to properly and most easily remove the covers. Teams can choose mornings only, evenings only or a combination.
We are seeking at least four teams (preferably six or eight) of two kids each to rotate the responsibility across the summer. Not every morning is needed and you can work to schedule around your summer activities.
Start date is April 17 and end date is September 30. We are looking for enough teams so we can balance desire to work (want a lot of shifts!) vs. just getting some initial work experience (just a few shifts).
Usual days needed (TBD): Mon, Wed, Thurs, Sat and Sun – however, home swim meet Saturdays will not be needed nor will most swim team practice days (much of June and July, see full swim calendar here). Each child earns $3 per job when in a team and it’s about a 10 minute job. If your child is older and does the job by themselves (or with a parent) they would earn $6 per job (one job being a morning or afternoon of taking the covers off).
