Dome Concessions

The Band Season may be over but there is still opportunities for members (16 and over ) and parents to bond, have fun, and start earning student account credits towards next season.

Never worked the Dome before, don't worry we will get you a "Dome Buddy".  Car Pooling and shuttling will be arranged for those who need it.

Make it a "Section Bonding" event, get together with the members and parents from your section and work together.

If your child is 16 or over and wants to work for his/her account but transportation is an issue....we can help!  Many parents would be willing to transport if they are working the same game.  Contact Wendy to discuss.

No more than 1/3 of the staffing can be under 18; we must have a 2 adult to 1 minor ratio. Get friends and family to work with you, 3 people working a basketball game for the same member would place around $90 in your student account.

 You can cover all of next year's participation fees before the season even starts!

What do we do at the Dome???

Prepare food beforehand, food service during the game and clean up afterwards.  We need cashiers, soda pourers, runners, prepare nachos, and grill workers.

Workers earn $6/hour.  For a typical football game workers earned around $42 and for basketball it’s around $30.  Workers must be at least 16 years of age (this is a Dome Policy) and family and friends can work towards your account. We need a minimum of 19 volunteers for all events.

Band/Guard/Percussion members are encouraged to work games that do not conflict with rehearsals/competitions.

Yes! Family, Friends even Alumni can work for your account.


New This Year!

Families that work 5 different games earn a $50 bonus in their student account. JUST APPROVED – work an additional 5 games and earn ANOTHER $50.   SO TEN games will earn you an additional $100 to your member account!!!


What do we do at the Dome???


There are many games in need of workers. This is a fun and rewarding opportunity. We are responsible for preparing all the food that will be sold, fully staffing the stand during each scheduled event, and cleaning up afterwards.  We need cashiers, soda pourers, runners, prepare nachos, and grill workers.


 If your child is 16 or over and wants to work for his/her account but transportation is an issue....we can help!  Many parents would be willing to transport if they are working the same game.  Contact Wendy to discuss.


Sign up on-line for a Dome shift @ OR

contact Wendy through our Dome e-mail @ OR sign up in the DOME book at the end of practices on Tuesdays or Thursdays.


If you have never managed or money managed but are interested in doing so, see Wendy Solberg to get trained and booster board approved. You will receive an additional $25 for each game you manage.



 All Seniors - Please note that you will be kept on the current list of e-mail recipients until graduation in June and therefore will continue to receive periodic e-mails concerning the Boosters during the Winter season.  At that point your information, along with those of your parents/guardians, will be transferred to our Alumni lists.

Those parents who still have members participating will remain on the standard lists.


Thank you to Band Photographer Cindy Barrus, Band camp photos and photos throughout the season are posted on the Facebook site.

The Boosters are You!  The Marching Band Boosters is an organization consisting of parents and guardians who would like to participate in the direction of the Liverpool Marching Warriors. 


The goal of the Booster organization is to support the Marching Band Program; to develop and carry out fundraising and other projects which assist with keeping actual out of pocket costs as low as possible; to help promote the Marching Band programs within the school district and the greater community. 



Some area employers (ex. AETNA , BEST BUY, and VERIZON) will give grants to non-profit organizations that their employees volunteer for. Check with your employer and see if such a program exists at your place of employment
