Thank you parents and students for volunteering for Concessions. As you know, our Band Boosters provide Concessions for most field events at Courier Field and our students work games to earn money for their student accounts.  During JV Football, Soccer and Lacrosse, adults are there to provide supervision and to help when it’s busy but primarily, the students handle all the jobs – cashier, cooking, popcorn, pretzels, clean up, etc. Student sign up is in the band room on the band door (near the uniform room).  Home JV games are Sept 1, 8, 15, 29 (all Thurs) and October 12 (Wed). Training for parents to work JV, Soccer and Lacrosse with their students is done during the varsity football games.  Adults are needed for every home football game as well as our Preview of Champions competition (in our 5th year!) and other hosted competitions.  Our volunteer hours count towards the Bands’ Dividend hours.  We need approximately 20-25 volunteers for each football game Friday evenings.  Our first game is also Band Senior night so we really need our Freshman, Sophomore and Junior parents to work this game.

Concessions Sign up:

Concession Open House will be July 26 and July 28 at 8pm at the Concession Stand located at the end of the football field near Hwy 426/Broadway.  This is not mandatory but it’s a nice opportunity to learn about our program and ways you can support it.
If you have any questions, please email  Thank you.
