It takes a large number of dedicated volunteers to run the many events. We thank you for taking the time to consider volunteering and supporting the Raider Football Program. Contact email@example.com if you would like to help.
Special Events & Volunteer Opportunities
Banquets – At the completion of each season, a sub-varsity and varsity banquet is held to celebrate all the teams and their successes for the season. These are two separate banquets catered by an outside vendor and tickets are sold through the Cedar Ridge Raider Football website (players eat free). Decorations (table centerpieces, balloons, etc.) are typically made by the parents for these banquets. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our Special Projects Vice President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Varsity Team Dinners/Breakfasts – Varsity dinners are held every Thursday night in the Cedar Ridge High School Cafeteria. These dinners provide an opportunity for the team to build camaraderie while enjoying dinner prior to their Friday game. These meals are provided and served by the parents. During playoffs, the meals may be changed to breakfasts depending on the team’s schedule for off-weeks and Saturday games. For more information or to provide food for these meals, please contact our Special Projects Vice President at email@example.com.
Sub-varsity Team Meals – Sub-varsity team meals are provided each Thursday prior to the Freshman and Junior Varsity games. Meal packages from specific vendors can be purchased by parents for their players at the beginning of each season. These vendors will create the meals according to selections made for player and deliver to the school. These meals are then handed out to the players by parent volunteers. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our Special Projects Vice President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tunnel Crew – At the beginning of each Varsity game and at the beginning of the third quarter, the tunnel crew is responsible for ensuring the inflatable tunnel is up and the “smoke” is running for the Varsity players as they take the field. The tunnel crew is typically made up of males and provides an opportunity for fathers, uncles, etc., to volunteer and support the team. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our Special Projects Vice President at email@example.com.
Merchandise – the Cedar Ridge Football Booster Club is present at each sub-varsity “home” game and each varsity game to sell raider spirit gear. The Vice President of Merchandise is responsible for selling merchandise at all home and some away games, as well as selling merchandise at special events and at the banquets. Volunteers help work the merchandise table to keep the sales transactions processing efficiently, as well as oversee the table as specific times to allow the Vice President the opportunity to watch his/her player in their game. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our Vice President of Merchandise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Homecoming – Homecoming is a week full of activities leading up to the Varsity game on Friday night and Homecoming dance on Saturday night. The locker rooms are decorated by the parents for all teams and “snack” bags are placed inside each locker for the players. A homecoming parade is also held during the week with banners, decorated “floats” and all teams/organizations are invited to walk in the parade. Outside vendors are present to provide concessions and booster clubs are present to provide spirit gear. A pep rally is held on the football field at the conclusion of the parade. Parade posters/banners, locker room decorations and “snack” bags are provided by the parents. There are also other opportunities to help with homecoming by driving a vehicle/float in the parade or help with the booster club merchandise tables. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our Special Projects Vice President at email@example.com.
