Help make Tyler a full time YMCA employee!
Tyler has been working for the Foothills YMCA since last summer. He has worked countless hours for our team, some of it paid, some of it unpaid, as his employee status has only been part time. Our team has grown far beyond what the Y dreamed of for its first year, and we are past the point of needing a coach that has full time status. Tyler's time is spent not only on the pool deck, but also in creating group specific and goal oriented workouts each day. He is the president of the SC YMCA Swim League. He also spends time getting swimmers registered for meets, hosting/traveling to meets, and talking with parents in the off time. In short, Tyler's dedication to the Bluefins has been immense and it brought about a State Championship in our first year! On a personal level, Tyler cannot continue to work as our head coach without full time pay and benefits. We cannot afford to start over again, and any new coach with a team our size would expect the same as what Tyler needs. Our family memberships and swim fees have helped keep the YMCA afloat financially during the rough last year, and we believe it is past time for the Y to compensate Tyler for all the hours he actually works. Please help us by signing this petition so we can let the Foothills Y know how much we care about having a coach and mentor as dedicated as Tyler is to our children.
