Gatewatch is an important responsibility of all Westgate Cabana Members. It promotes the safety and security of our pool by ensuring that only members and their guests enter the facility. Members performing gatewatch are also responsible for assisting lifeguards or families in the case of an emergency.
Gatewatch duty is mandatory for all Family (2 shifts) and Single Adult (2 shifts) Memberships. Gatewatch is not required for teen membership. Each shift is approximately 2-3 hours.
The general responsibility during Gatewatch is to verify membership and to receive guest passes. All Gatewatch instructions and materials needed are located at the desk. We ask that you use your discretion in having children accompany you during your shift.
Once you have completed your shifts, you are eligible to receive your gatewatch deposit. Please submit a gatewatch refund request form by October 31st.
If you need to cancel or change a shift, please do so at least 72 hours in advance to allow another member the opportunity to take your spot. Go to the calendar on SignUp.com and cancel your shift; this will notify the Gatewatch Coordinator and free up the shift for another member to fill.
