We are looking forward to another great season of music in the big
stadium. Every Student in the high school band program will be a part of the marching band, and this year it will be bigger than ever!
Students have the option of two different levels of participation in our marching band program:
1) COMPETITION BAND
2) Friday band.
Competition band is our most involved program. We practice three days a week after school for two hours each, friday game day rehearsals, game performance, three competitions on Saturdays, and a few parades and fund raisers. The competition band schedule begins with rehearsals during August.
Friday Band includes Friday game day rehearsals, game performances, parades and fundraisers. This group is Ideal for those who are a part of other activities that conflict with marching band, such as fall sports. Thier schedule begins when school begins.
