2018-2019Parents & Members
Each person working an event needs to sign up and please type the name of the band student in the comment box that will be receiving the credit for the event.
Signing up to work means you will be there - rain or shine. The Apex Band Boosters has a commitment with Staff One, so please do not show up without notice.
Official volunteer list will be sent to Staff One the Monday prior to the game. Once the volunteer list has been sent to Staff One, you have committed to work that event. Be sure you add/delete prior to Monday of the upcoming event.
**Students Especially - Please check the band calendar before signing up for below dates. Competitions dates in 2018 are 9/29, 10/6, 10/13, 10/20 and 10/27.
NC State Football Game Workers earn $9.50/hour to their student account, 4 hour minimum (if you report ON TIME).
DUKE events - Minimum age is 18. Duke Basketball & Football events pay $10/hour!
Duke Mens Basketball Schedule HERE. If you are interested in working a game, please email [email protected] to be added to the gate list and for further instructions.
Black pants and black shoes, collar shirts and dress for the weather as you know you will all be near doors or entry points.
NC State: Volunteer as Ticket Takers & Ushers (minimum age 16) for football games!! On the job training provided. Please read the stadium rules on this cheatsheet so you know to enforce them during your shift.
Each event will end up being around 5-6 hours in duration. Several people may work on your student's behalf - i.e. siblings at least 16 years old, friends & family. Be sure they sign up & list the marchers name to whom the funds should be assigned.

ALSO AVAILABLE: East Carolina University (Greenville), NC Central (Durham) and Campbell University (Buies Creek). Please email [email protected] if you are interested in working any of these games.
Staff One also staffs other events throughout the year that they request the help from Volunteer groups. For example, concerts at Carter Finley Stadium, Raleigh Rock n' Roll Marathon. For these events additional information will be provided closer to the event date.
Note for All Events: You will be STANDING in the sun, on concrete, rain or shine for the entire duration (you will have one short break). You are responsible for your own transportation to NCSU football stadium.
NC State Report times, Dress Code:
Report times will be on average 2.75 hours prior to kick off for NC State games.
Dress Code: Mostly BLACK closed toe/closed heel shoes or sneakers.

Plain black or brown belt.
White T-shirt to wear under the staff shirt that they will provide upon arrival.
Collared shirts for known jacketed events (usually the November football games) - this means if it will be cold, wear a collared shirt or turtle neck - they will provide wind breaker type jackets to wear over your warm clothing.

Please represent Apex High Marching Band proud!
Following hats are allowed to be worn - Staff One hats, NC State hats, or plain black or navy baseball caps or skull caps (no logos allowed).
THE FINE PRINT (please read): This opportunity, as well as Walnut Creek concessions and PNC concessions is just that an OPPORTUNITY. These are not something the Band Boosters MUST offer, these are something we CHOOSE to offer. Likewise, these are not opportunities that are guaranteed to be offered year after year. Fellow booster members volunteer to coordinate each of these opportunities on their own time - in addition to their volunteer hours for the boosters, in addition to their family time, in addition to their work/school/church obligations. The most difficult part of coordinating is when people don't follow rules, don't read their gatelist emails, arrive late, or worse yet back out at the last minute, etc. We are ALL volunteers, but the APEX BAND BOOSTERS signs a contract to provide staffing for these events. Some contracts include a clause to back charge us if we fail to provide the staffing required. Everyone who agrees to staff an event represents our team - if anyone consistently arrives late OR does not follow rules of staffing these events OR creates a history of backing out of commitments to staff events at any OR all of these opportunities - may be removed from all of these opportunities across the board. We really do not want to have to do this to any of our members - so please be on time, read your gatelist emails, know when to be at the stand, bring whatever supplies are required (ie. pen/pencil/calculator/hat, etc). Come prepared and happy to be there and willing to help show new parents what to do. Things will also change and morph throughout the season, please be flexible and a good representative of the Apex Band Boosters. This may also indirectly by example teach your students to follow through with their commitments!
TIMES MAY BE ADJUSTED AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE SEASON/GAME!!

Directions to NC State
Off I-440 Beltline
Take exit 4 (Wade Ave, To I-40 West)
Take the next exit Blue Ridge Rd and make a left
Make a right onto Trinity Rd
As you approach Carter-Finley Stadium make a left onto Youth Center Drive. Up on the right you will see Gate H-7 of the State Horse Complex, pull in there and tell the parking attendant you work with Staff One and park where they direct you.
Walk down Youth Center and cross Trinity Rd. Walk down the east side of the stadium (where there is no press box) and go to Gate 7. We enter and check in at Gate 7.
After signing in, you will be given a STAFF collared shirt to wear over your white shirt. If you must bring a bag/purse, you may check it at the STAFF ONE table (also at Gate 7). However, it’s best to come carrying nothing. Once you receive your shirt, Supervisors (in green shirts) will be looking for workers to fill their sections. Historically, a lot of Apex band and chorus people have worked for BLAIR - he supervises USHERS, mainly in the north end zone. If TICKET TAKING is your thing, we have also worked with JON R (JR). You may ask for these supervisors to see if they need help. Otherwise, walk up to any supervisor and they will help get you assigned to a section to work.
Lastly, plan extra time for parking and walking to the stadium. Staff parking is about a 15-20 minute walk from the stadium. Even though we arrive a few hours before kickoff, TONS of people are already there tailgating. Traffic is already congested - plan for a LOT of extra time parking & walking to stadium so that you arrive on time at Gate 7.
Once you arrive, HAVE FUN!
