Volunteer

There are many areas in the band program that could not function without the hard work and dedication of our parent volunteers.  Take a minute to look over the groups below and see what you would like to do.   Please feel free to choose more than one area.

CONCESSION STAND
The main fundraiser for the Bloomington South Band program is the concession stands.  We staff all concession stands during all home athletic events for the entire academic year.  So, we need lots of parent volunteers all year long.  If you have not already done so, please contact our volunteer coordinator at prbandvolunteers@bhssmarchingband.com to get signed up. We also have a Q & A document that contains the link to our online signup sheet and to answer all your questions about volunteering for concessions.

COMPETITION DAY/FOOTBALL GAME DUTY
This involves being in the uniform room to help the marchers with any problems that they might have, being available at competitions to help, and making sure that all the uniforms are returned to the uniform room after a competition/game.  Depending on the number of volunteers, you may or may not need to be at each event.

PIT CREW
For football games, this involves being available to haul equipment to the football field and back to the school.  On competition days this involves helping load the trailer, helping to unload the trailer at the contest site, haul the equipment to the field, load it back up and then unload when you get to the school.  Sounds like a lot of work but this dedicated group has a great time

CHAPERONES
This group of volunteers must possess the following characteristics:  attendance taking skills, the ability to solve minor problems, knowing when enough is enough, more common sense than a teenager, the ability to follow a chain of command and the desire to ride a school bus throughout the state.  We try to use volunteers that are available for each competition.  That way, you get to know the kids on your bus and they get to know you.  Once we see how many people volunteer for this position, we will know if we are able to use people that are only available on occasion.

Not able to go to every competition?  There are times when one of the “regular” chaperones cannot go so we will need a few substitutes to call on.

GENERAL HELPER
There are several times when we need help for just an evening or for a special event.  If you would be willing to help with some odd jobs, this is the area for you.
