Snack Stand Team Duty - Parent Information



Click here to view instructions on how to sign up for Snack Stand Team Duty shifts, IF your coach has already added them to your Team Calendar.  If not, please contact your coach to sign up for a SS shift.


DURING YOUR SHIFT

A Snack Stand Committee Member will be at the SS at least 30 min before the start of team shifts to help open.  The list of what should be done for opening is posted by the door (or click here to see the list).  When you arrive, the committee member can answer any questions you have and if you are new, show you how things work in the SS.

Please check the white board in the SS at the beginning of your shift for info  - menu changes and other important information will be noted here.

Due to food safety best practices, no children under the age of 10 will be allowed in the snack stand.  Also, no children under the age of 16 are allowed to handle money or work the window.  The HBB Board and SS Committee appreciate your attention to this matter.

If you have a question or problem while you are in the SS, please feel free to contact any of the committee members posted near the door in the SS.  You can text or call - whatever works for you.  We are happy to help!

Additional stock of drinks, food, and other supplies can be found in the side shed, which is normally locked.  If you need something from here, please find any Board Member or contact a SS Committee member.

A Snack Stand Committee Member will also come assist with closing up the SS for the day at the end of games.  The list of what should be done for closing is posted by the door (or click here to see the list).  Games generally last about 2 hours.  So on a weeknight when games started at 6pm, team volunteers in the SS should start the closing procedures around 8pm.  Our goal is to sell out of anything we cannot keep for the next day - please be mindful of cooking a large number of hot dogs at the end of the day and encourage the sales of pizza if there is a lot left.  We do track the amount of food given away at the end of the day to help lesson the amount of loss.

Please feel free to contact us anytime!

Snack Stand Team Duty - Coach Information


All teams are required to send volunteers to cover the Snack Stand (SS) window at assigned times throughout the season.  Harleysville Baseball is 100% volunteer run, so we rely on adult volunteers to keep things running smoothly.

Coaches and Assistant Coaches are excused from SS duty since they already have a pretty big job to do.  Other parents from the team should fill the SS shifts.

Coaches can either:
- ask for volunteers from parents for shifts
- assign parents to shifts, allowing them to switch among themselves as needed

Coaches can manage this themselves or ask for a volunteer team parent to handle it for them.

Click here for easy instructions for adding SS shifts to your team calendar on our new website.  Also attached are parent instructions on how to sign up for those shifts.
Please be sure that someone is checking in with the SS during your shifts to ensure parents are showing up.  If a parent does not show up for their shift, we will come to your game and ask for a new volunteer from the parents present.  If no one volunteers, we will stop your game until someone steps up.  Luckily, we have never had to do this, but it did come close last year.

HBB relies on the proceeds from the SS to pay for facility improvements each year and keep registration costs low.  This year, projects include - significant improvements to the stadium field, fence capping on all fences, and an outfield fence on the Scout Cabin field.

Coaches should share all this information with their parents to ensure everyone understands that love it or hate it, your SS shifts are not optional - and in the end, really do benefit every child in HBB.

If you have any questions or concerns about the snack stand, don't hesitate to contact us.  We are happy to help!
