10 ways to volunteer as a high school football mom

By Vanessa Mejia | Posted 9/13/2018

Just because your football player has moved on from youth to high school ball doesn't mean your days of volunteering have to be over. Here are 10 ways that you can help out as a high school football mom:

1. Booster Club

Booster Clubs support and raise funds for the entire program. They are 100% volunteer ran, so parent participation is crucial to their success!

2. Fundraisers

They are vital to high school programs! The funds raised go toward purchasing quality equipment, uniforms, camps, and training sessions, as well as other important areas.

3. Pre-game meals

Most high schools feed their teams on game day. Feeding a football team, AKA a small army, is no easy task! Volunteer a few hours of your time to help set up and serve the players.

4. Ticket Taker/Sales

Just what it sounds like. You work the ticket booth, usually for the game before or after your player's game.

5. Chain Crew

The best seat in the house! You literally get to be on the field. It doesn't get much better than that!

6. Concessions

Help sell those famous game day burgers and hot dogs!

7. Sell spirit wear

Who doesn't want to rock their school colors?! Sign up to work the spirit wear table!

8. Team Videographer

At the high school level, film study is a must! One of the biggest ways you can help your team (and coach) is by filming the games. For the best view, be sure to sit in the press box, or as high up on the bleachers as you can go!

9. Team Photographer

Have a passion for photography? Put it to use by taking game photos and sharing them with the team. You will even be allowed down on the sidelines!

10. Parent Liaison/Team Mom

Yep, they even have them in high school, Mamas! I'm the Freshman Team Mom this year. Woot woot! My main responsibility is to act as the point of contact between our parents and coaches.
