Hello everyone,

 

VOLUNTEERS – WE NEED YOU!!

As you know, the Wheeler Football program is run by volunteers and WE NEED YOUR HELP!! The same few parents continue to devote their time and energy for ALL needs of the program. This simply isn’t fair. Moving forward, concessions will not operate if no volunteers sign-up or show up to help out. Please understand this is not what we want to happen. Concessions provides a large portion of revenue for the program. Without it, many benefits the players receive will no longer be available and the cost of playing will increase. We want you to see your player play during his game so we are asking you to volunteer for games in which he is not playing.

Please visit the volunteer sign-up links below and volunteer your time when available:

 

·        Varsity Parents – Please volunteer for 9th Grade, JV, Junior, or Youth home games.

·        JV Parents – Please volunteer for 9th Grade, Varsity, Junior, or Youth home games.

·        9th Grade parents – Please volunteer for JV, Varsity, Junior, or Youth home games.

·        Junior Parents – Please volunteer for High School or Youth home games.

·        Youth Parents – Please volunteer for High School or Junior home games.

 

THANK YOU!!
