Will You Keep Score?
With one coach per JV squad, it is helpful to have a parent keep score in Game Changer or its equivalent. Can you help?
Good Voice? Announce it!
During home matches, all teams need volunteers willing to provide the game atmosphere by playing music, handling the scoreboard, and announcing.
For each JV home game, the concession stand needs two workers. This is the best and warmest seat in the stadium during February and March!
Certified Food Handlers
$10 Online Certification Any time we serve hot drinks or cook hot food, a Temporary Food Permit and two Certified Food Handlers are required at the event.
The Grill Master!
The opportunities to grill are few: JV tournaments in February and any Saturday when both JV teams play at home. The grill can be moved so you can watch the game.
The Volunteer Coordinator is the glue for the JV home game experience. Setting up the VolunteerSpot calendar, cleaning & stocking the concession stand, finding parents to become certified food handlers and obtaining Temporary Food Permits from the City of Austin are all part of this role. The nice part of this role is that so many parents pitch in. Training is available from previous Volunteer Coordinators.
The Hit-A-Thon event occurs in the middle of February at the beginning of the high school baseball season. Anderson players compete with each other seeing who hits farthest. The players raise a certain amount via pledges. The volunteer coordinating this event manages marketing the event, distributing and collecting the players’ pledge packets, and contacting Chipolte, where the families eat together after the Hit-A-Thon.
