Marching Band Q&A
Q: When is marching band season?
A: Marching Band is primarily a fall "sport" of the arts. September and October are the main season. There are also summer rehearsals and band camp. (Band Camp is in mid-late August - usually 2 weeks before school starts).
Q: Are there summer rehearsals?
A: Yes - band camp in late August (see above) - also starting in 2015 a "rookie" day for fundamentals and possibly some section (small group) meetings/ rehearsals.
Q: What is the fall schedule like?
A: During September and October rehearsals are on Tuesdays and Thursday from 6:00-8:45PM and on Saturdays late morning-early afternoon before traveling to shows on most Saturdays in September and October.
Q: How much does it cost to be in marching band?
A: Season fees are NOT set yet for 2018. In past years we have collected a "season fee" between $150 and $250* which included:
Bowling Night at Strikers
Dance on the last evening (Carriager's Picnic Grove)
Senior recognition activities
-Fall Trip (overnight)
-2 T-Shirts (Show shirt and section shirt)

-Dinner on championship weekend
*(has been the same for many years, but is not set yet for 2018 as budgets from the district and boosters are not yet established. A final number will be set in the spring.)
