Coaches looking for summer jobs would also be advised to look into whether
your area hosts any ID tech camps. They pay $450 for the first year, a
plus. It does require a weekend training session in April- May time frame
that is paid, but also mandatory.  There are no discounts for family
members to the program, a con if you were hoping for that.
