Concession Stand Schedule

CONCESSION STAND POLICIES – Our concession stand is a major factor in generating revenue for PBO used to improve the league and defray expenses. Every family is REQUIRED to work one shift in the concession stand per player. This can be a positive and fun experience if you approach your shift with the proper attitude.

Managers and “Team Moms/Dads” will receive a schedule listing each team’s assigned dates to staff the concession stand. The schedule will also be posted in the PBO Office. MANAGERS – please designate a Team Mom/Dad as soon as possible and provide them with a copy of the Concession Stand Policies – 2019.

THE STAFFING OF THE CONCESSION STAND IS ULTIMATELY A MANAGER’S RESPONSIBILITY.

GENERAL POLICIES

EITHER THE MANAGER OR TEAM MOM/DAD MUST BE PRESENT AT THE BEGINNING OF A TEAM’S DESIGNATED SHIFT TO ASSURE THAT ALL WORKERS SHOW UP. 

  • Each team will receive two assigned dates to provide six (5-6) workers for a 3.5 to 4 hour shift who will work under the direction of the Concession Stand Supervisor. All workers may work in the stand or on the grill. Or, Four (4) of the workers will work in the concession stand or grill under the supervision of a concession stand supervisor and two (2) of the workers will be assigned “Waste Management” duty and shall be responsible for emptying garbage cans and picking up trash and litter around the park during their shift.
  •  The manager or Team Mom/Dad is required to provide a completed Concession Stand Staffing Sheet listing the names and phone numbers of their team’s workers a minimum of one (1) week in advance of their scheduled date. A form for that purpose will be provided. The completed form may be turned in to a concession stand supervisor or dropped off in the PBO Office inside the concession stand.
  • WORKERS MUST BE ON TIME! Weekday shifts are from 4:45 pm to 8 pm as needed. Saturdays have four separate shifts: morning, afternoon, evening and a grill shift. During the beginning of each shift the Concession Stand Supervisor will train the workers and explain their duties for the shift.
  •  RAIN OUTS: In the event there is a rainout on your scheduled shift, you will be assigned to a makeup shift. This applies to ANY rain out situation regardless of what inning the games are in.
  • ABSOLUTELY NO CHILDREN ARE ALLOWED IN THE STAND. This is for their safety and yours. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Parents are the preferred workers. However, a 14-year old or older FAMILY MEMBER may work to fulfill a family’s obligation. No team may have more than two (2) teen-aged workers (14-19 years old) on any given shift
  • If a team has only 11 players, the team will send 6 members to one of its duty days and 5 members to the other duty day. If the team with only 11 players is scheduled for a Saturday and a weekday, the team must send the 6 members to the Saturday duty. If a team has 10 players, they will send 5 and 5 regardless of the day.

CAN’T MAKE YOUR ASSIGNED SHIFT?
If you cannot make your assigned shift, you must make alternate arrangements by switching shifts with another parent.
Please contact you manager / division representative for questions
No replacement workers will be available to take your Assigned Shift.

NO SHOWS – The policies for NO SHOWS may seem harsh, but they have become necessary in order to assure that the concession stand is properly staffed.

MANAGERS it is ultimately your responsibility to be sure that your team fulfils their concession stand duty.
Failure to do so ultimately hurts the league as a whole. Stress to your Team Mom/Dad and the parents the importance of showing up for their assigned concession stand duty.
1. If a worker does not show for their assigned shift, they are obligated to pay the concession stand $50.00 to cover replacement workers.
2. If more than two (2) workers from any one (1) team fail to show for their shift (without replacement workers), that team will FORFEIT their next regular season game or playoff game (not practice game). Again, payments of $50.00 each are required.
