Volunteers who are 12 or older, their parents, and siblings can volunteer for as many games as they want. Your duties may include cashier, runner, or food prep. The more games you and your family volunteer for, the more you earn! Each volunteer will earn $10/hour with a 5-hour minimum ($50.00) and rounded to the next half hour if additional time is worked per game, receive a Coney Island T-shirt as well as free food and drinks while volunteering. We work 5 to 6 hours per game day with the arrival time 2 hours prior to kick-off. The kickoff time varies and the first three home games have published kickoff times of 6 pm (arrive at 4 pm). We will update the kickoff times as they are announced. Please follow the link to sign up to volunteer! More information to come.

JAZZ BAND

Auditions

This year's jazz band will begin the Monday after fall break. This is such a great opportunity to become a well-rounded musician!


There will be an audition process for this ensemble this year. I encourage everyone to try it out. If we have enough then there is a possibility of having two ensembles!

Expectations

  • No food or drink in the band room. If you have food or drink please enter through the west or southeast doors and do NOT bring it into the room.

  • No cell phones during rehearsal. If you are having to sit and wait while I work with a different section then you need to be looking at your part.

  • Make sure you have your own pencil (Preferably 2) for rehearsal every day.

  • If an early rehearsal begins at 7:15am then please be in your seat ready to go at that time. Not walking in the door. I will typically open the doors between 7am-7:05am.
