Band Camp

Show up! Pre-season rehearsals are mandatory, you will need to arrange family vacations, doctor’s visits, drivers licence tests,jobs, family time at a time other than during marching band pre-season. Students must attend ALL rehearsals with no interruptions. The week of pre-season is like 12 weeks of regular rehearsals. We will learn our music and get our drill on the field. If one person is missing, the entire band needs to review what was missed when you come back; it slows everyone down. Remember, our fist game is the first week of school. The band needs to look and sound good as a unit.

Below is the fall band camps information, these camps are mandatory for all incoming and current band students. We need to be ready for our first game!
