Is anyone familiar with the gym options in Sarasota, FL? There seem to be a good number of them. My daughter is a senior in high school, competing level 9, and coaching pre-team (plus whatever other classes they throw her into when they need her). She is considering New College of Florida in Sarasota and it is the most affordable school she has been accepted to so far so I would REALLY like her to go there. We're going to an "Accepted Students Day" in April and I thought I might encourage her to contact some of the gyms there about employment opportunities while we're there. EVO Athletics seems to be the closest to the college. I guess I'm mainly curious about gym atmosphere, management, etc. Do most gyms generally need coaches most of the time? I feel like if a college student with higher-level gym experience and some coaching experience walked into my daughter's gym, they'd hire her on the spot. Not for team, but for classes, birthday parties, etc. Is that generally the case or is it hard to find a coaching job as an 18-year-old college freshman?
