Parent Volunteers

We rely on parents to serve as volunteers to ensure the success and continuation of our activity program. Parents will be asked to sign up to help with admissions and concession stand. Coaches may also ask parents to volunteer to work the scoreboard and/or scorebook. To show our appreciation, parent volunteers will get into the game for free the night they work.

Admissions

Arrive 30 minutes prior to the 1st game.

We are charging admission for 5/6th games (if any are scheduled).

Admission Prices

Adults (including High School/College Students)- $3

Students (K-8)/Seniors- $2

Parents who attend games are required to pay admission unless they are volunteering to work that night.

*Parent volunteers for admissions or concession stand get into the game for free the night they work.

Concession Stand

Please arrive at 30 minutes before the first game to set up the concession stand.

The concession stand will open as soon as it is ready. It will be open between games and at half time only. The concession stand will close after the end of the first game of the 8th grade match for volleyball and after half time of the 8th grade game for basketball.

Coaches will send around a sign-up sheet for parents. If you are unable to work your scheduled time, please find your own replacement.

Players are expected to sit in the gym as a team and cheer on their teammates. They should not be helping with the concession stand.

Younger students that are non-players are not allowed behind the concession stand unless their parent is working. They should be in the line of sight of their parent at all times.

Thank you for your involvement and support of CEL athletic programs. It is appreciated.
