Football Volunteers:

Football volunteers help at all football games, both home and away.  If you are interested in volunteering for a contest, you must have volunteered for at least one football game.

CHAPERONES: You will ride the buses with the students to and from away games to assist the student leaders if needed.  You will accompany the students in and out of the stadium and on bathroom breaks.  Other duties include inserting and removing plumes in the student’s shakos, collecting flip folders after the Legacy performance, handing out beverages after the marching performance, preparing the bleacher area for the band before the game, ensuring the bleacher area is clean after the game, and other miscellaneous duties that may arise.  You will remain in the stands with the students for the entire football game.  In order to give everyone an opportunity to chaperone a football game, please do not sign up for more than 3 games.

PIT VIPERS:  You will help get the band equipment on and off the field for performances.  This includes the props, front ensemble equipment, and the drum major podiums.  To help with props you must be able to lift 50 pounds.  Other band equipment is easy to move and does not require the ability to lift.  Some Pit Vipers will also help load and unload the band trailer and box trucks for away games. You might ride in a truck to an away game, or you might take your own car or car pool with other Pit Vipers.
