Supervision of Children

Our goal for Friday Night Home games is to provide a great environment where the whole family can enjoy the many great aspects of having a home game. We enjoy having the children come to Garth Campus on Friday nights and want them to have a fun and safe experience.


Please understand that it is not the responsibility of anyone at the game (officer, volunteer parking attendant, another parent or another child, etc) to supervise your children. Randolph Athletics takes on the financial burden of ensuring there are security officers on the premises and we try to maintain order among the children as we can, but we cannot be held responsible for the children or their actions. Therefore, we ask that you consider the following bullet points and assist us in controlling the children by making sure your child abides by the rules.


Rather than being reactive to a very unfortunate situation we are choosing to be proactive by putting the following rules and consequences in place:


  • Safety is the highest priority and is why we will not allow traffic around the back loop of Garth Campus.
  • The baseball and softball fields are off limits. This is also to protect the fields. Please remind your children to respect authority when they are reminded to stay off the fields.
  • The area between the football field and the baseball field as well as the grassy areas of the Commons and behind the gym building provide sufficient room to allow for children to play. These areas will be supervised to a degree during the game. Traffic will be blocked off in those areas prior to game time.
  • Failure to abide by these rules will result in taking the child to the Concession Stand. We will then have the PA announcer call for the parents of the child to meet us at the Concession Stand. Parents will then need to keep their child with them or take them home for the remainder of the game.



Concessions will be available 90 minutes prior to game time. An additional concessions trailer will be available outside the north endzone:

  • Burgers
  • BBQ
  • Chicken sandwiches
  • Hot dogs
  • Popcorn
  • Nachos
  • Coke products
  • Slushies
  • Candy
  • Concessions closes shortly after Quarter 3



The two main Garth Campus exits will be available when the game ends.
