Who can volunteer? What do the volunteers do?
Our volunteer staff consists of parents, students, siblings and other family and friends of band members. We also open the opportunity to students in Student Council, National Honors Society and other student organizations that require students to obtain volunteer hours. If a band member becomes ineligible during the marching season, we ask they support their band family by volunteering to staff the stands. Due to Health Department Regulations and safety concerns, we ask that no one under the age of 13 be in the stands, volunteers must wear hats and closed toed shoes, and no one under the age of 17 should be handling money.
Our volunteer staff preform various tasks from stocking shelves, stocking stands or coolers with drinks, cooking and heating food, and cashiering. Below are examples of our most important positions to fill:
Concessions Coordinator- This is a season long position that oversees the entire concession program. This volunteer will sit on the KPHS Band Booster Board, perform inventory, place orders, and act as a liaison between the Board and the volunteers. This volunteer also maintains a Food Managers License.
Stand Managers- This is a season long position that manages a stand during their designated games. There will be a Stand Manager for KMS games, Freshman games and JV games held at KPark Stadium. There will be 3 Stand Managers at Turner games. These volunteers attend the game from start to finish to ensure everything runs smoothly and to assist volunteers in the running of the designated stand.
Drink Runners (Turner Only)- Turner Stadium does not offer onsite drink coolers. All drinks must be delivered into the stands and iced prior to the game. This position loads the drinks on carts, delivers them to the designated stands and places them in drink carts with ice. This requires a lot of heavy lifting and pulling.
Grill Master (Turner Only)- Without this position there would not be hot food at Turner. This volunteer steps up to the plate…literally. The Grill Master arrives 3 hours prior to the start of the game and starts grilling all the hot dogs, burgers and sausage-on-a-stick. Other volunteers assist by prepping the buns and wrapping the hot foods as they come off the grill.
