SLC Challenge!

We are reaching out to the current SLC group to challenge the sections to see who can get the highest percentage of their section to work the Dome.

Many of you that have worked the Dome stand know it is a fun experience, especially when you are working with your friends!

Reach out to your individual sections and work with the Dome Coordinators to schedule shifts that are open for the upcoming games.

We can assist with providing transportation especially on the weekday games that start in the late afternoon.

What’s in it for you guys?

1.  An opportunity to hang with your friends from Marching Band while earning money for your student account getting a great start on next year's fees.

2.  Bragging rights on who has the best section that will get in the Band Notes, Website and Facebook.

3.  Helping keep the Dome Stand alive so that we bring in over $20,000 a year and continue to have great trips going forward.


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 Becky or 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!

Winter Guard/Percussion Parents this is a great way to get a head start on your participation fee before the Winter Season starts.

What do we do at the Dome???

and cleaning 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.


What do we do at the Dome???


SU Basketball Season has just started and 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.

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
