Students at the Arena Club work together as a group under the job coach's directions.  They are required to wear uniforms and follow a specific dress code.  Students at the club are always visible to the member and must always be in control of their behavior.  They often work in the locker rooms and must learn to become independent in that area.  All jobs are in the maintenance area and require students to do lots of bending and squatting.  They should be able to be on their feet for up to two hours.  Students should have no allergies to chemicals or dust.
