New this spring!
Back by popular demand, Randolph Athletics is once again offering the option for families to “opt-out” of the required volunteer duty per season when they have a child participating in a 7-12th grade Randolph athletic program. Now each family has a third option to fulfill their required volunteer shift:
- Sign-up and work one volunteer shift
- Find someone else to work your shift for you
- Pay $50 and forget about it!
Consequence for not complying with one of the three options: report cards/final transcripts will be held until fee is paid
For those of you that would like to select your volunteer shift and already know the drill from years past: SIGN UP HERE (most questions are answered below so please read)
Shifts start on Monday 2/10, but the deadline to sign up before being assigned a shift is: Sunday night, 2/9 at midnight. After this deadline open shifts will be filled with paid faculty workers and remaining families will be assessed the $50 “opt-out fee” (detailed above).
Who can support Randolph Athletics this season: All Randolph families
Who is required to support Randolph Athletics this season: all 7-12th grade families participating in Randolph Athletics this Spring season

Requirement: All 7-12th grade families participating in ANY Spring season athletic program are required to cover one (1) shift. Please note:
