Here are a few key things you need to know:
Firstly, thank you for signing up to help make our home tournament a success. We appreciate you helping us make our guests feel welcome. If you are approached by a guest and you don’t know the answer, please refer them to the check-in table, contact one of the tournament committees via walkie-talkies (located at concessions), or suggest they look at our online program.
Be sure to check in when you arrive. The volunteer check-in table is located right in front of the main school entrance (link to map). You will receive a wrist band which must be worn for entrance into the stadium.
With 12 bands attending our home tournament, parking will be limited. Please consider carpooling. There will be some volunteer parking available behind the math building (link to map). Alternately consider parking on one of the side streets surrounding the school.
What to wear
Please wear your SRHS Music Booster shirt. If you don’t have one we will be selling shirts at the end of practice on Friday night @ 8 PM. Alternatively, wear a maroon/cardinal red shirt. We also recommend dressing in layers, wearing comfortable shoes, and bringing a cellular device.
Please plan to arrive 5 minutes prior to your shift so that you can receive instructions from the person prior to you. If you don’t remember what you signed up for please take a moment to check the list (see link below). At the end of your shift please take a few moments to walk through the basics of the job with the person replacing you.
