Many hands make light work!
For every game or competition, our Marching Band needs help from 18-28 parents.
We are asking EVERY parent of MB students to volunteer at least ONCE this season. Join a volunteer team, or check out specific gameday needs (left).
We also need parents throughout the school year to support our general band program.
Please help us with any of the functions listed to the right. Your support will take our band program to new heights!
Marching Band Support
For every game or competition, our Marching Band needs help from 18-28 parents. There is nothing technical or difficult about any of these jobs, and any parent or grandparent can do it. We’ll have veteran parents there to point and show you everything you need to know.
Pick a volunteer team, pick a game, and sign up!
- HOSPITALITY (3-6 volunteers/game) Prep and serve meals before games and competitions
- UNIFORMS (3-4/game) Assist with uniforms and suiting up
- TRANSPORTATION (1/game) Help with trucks and trailers
- PHOTO/VIDEO (1-2/game) Be our photographer/videographer
- STANDS & FIELD* (10-15/game) Help with equipment/supplies, chaperoning, & halftime support
We are asking EVERY parent of MB students to volunteer at least ONCE this season. Here’s the math:* We have 11 events on our schedule this year: 5 home games, 4 away games, 2 competitions * With 100 kids in the Marching Band this year, we have more than 160 parents on our roster. * 18-28 volunteer slots per game x 11 events = 198-275 total opportunities * If EVERYONE volunteers just one time, for just one role, we get close to what we need for the entire season. * If you fill multiple roles in at an event (i.e. helping with uniforms before the game, then handing out snacks at halftime), that gap closes even more. * If EVERYONE volunteered even twice, we’d have more volunteers than we need! Don't leave it up to everyone else.
General Band Support
The following areas benefit the entire band program, and help to support activities throughout the school year. The student committee chair or booster chairperson will contact teams to discuss specific opportunities as they arise. Feel free to try out multiple areas.
