The Pit Crew is responsible for assisting the Band and staff generally as needed, but particularly for things like assembling props, transporting instruments, setting up and breaking down the front ensemble for home and away football games. We are also responsible for getting all of the band’s equipment to competitions, (instruments, uniforms and props), as well as getting everything on and off the field for the competition itself. It is particularly helpful to have people who are handy with "fixing stuff" (like the Gator or trailers, building props, or miscellaneous other projects as needed).
Volunteer Opportunities: Participating on Pit Crew is a great way to get involved with the marching band program and meet other parents, kids and band staff. It’s a lot of fun and you will get to know the kids and be a part of something that means a lot to them. You'll also get a behind the scenes look at what they are doing and how much they are enjoying the experience.
