Concession Stand

The concession stand is an important source of revenue for Irmo Little League. The concession stand is staffed entirely by volunteers. Every Irmo Little League team is assigned 2-3 game days during the season to staff the concession stand, with each family requested to participate in one or more shifts.

Parent volunteers in the concession stand help open and set up for business, prepare food, take orders, ring up sales, serve orders, and re-stock the shelves at the end of their shifts. First-time volunteers should arrive 10 minutes early the first time they work a shift so that they can be briefly trained by the Officer on Duty on operating the concession stand and other equipment.

Your team's assigned concession stand slots will be included on the Master Game Schedule. Team parents are responsible for lining up volunteers for each team's shifts. On weeknights, shifts typically start at 5:30PM and go until approximately 9:15PM when the second set of games end. Saturday shifts are typically 2-3 hour shifts starting around 9:30AM.

When the grill is in use, an adult volunteer will need to prepare the burgers/hot dogs/chicken during the first 30-45 minutes of the first shift until sufficient food is cooked and the hot boxes are stocked.
