Uniform Fitting for Sophomores (schedule on website – high school/marching band/uniform fitting schedule. Click HERE to go to that page.)

Monday, July 25th – Friday, July 29th

Brass, Woodwinds, Battery, Front Ensemble, and Guard Rehearsals

Each day, a good portion of rehearsal will be out in the sun. Students should spend some time outside this summer so they will be acclimated to the heat. Students should also spend some time doing exercise, conditioning, and/or some type of physical activity so they will be better prepared for the physicality that marching band demands.

Outside rehearsals in the mornings will be at the track football field. Outside rehearsals in the evenings will be at the stadium. For safety reasons - students are not allowed to drive from football fields to music building during pre-band. Regardless of outside rehearsal location - students are to park at the music building and walk to different rehearsal areas. Parents bringing students to rehearsals should drop them off at the music building parking lot.

For all rehearsals during pre-band, there are no jeans allowed – students must wear shorts. Proper footwear is tennis shoes – no sandals, flip flops, etc. Shoes should be tightly laced, not loose and only for decoration. Finally, every student should bring their own water for all outside rehearsals. You will need a large jug of water. A twelve-ounce bottle will not suffice. There is to be no sharing of water. Students should take water jugs home each night to clean and refill them. 

8:00 am – 12:00 pm

  • Brass, Battery, and Woodwinds – two hours will be spent outside doing marching fundamentals and body work and then two hours spent inside for sectionals. Some sectionals may be held outdoors as it is necessary to hear music in proper context.
  • Front Ensemble – will be inside most of the time.
  • Guard – see guard facebook page for all details.

5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

  • Brass, Battery, and Woodwinds – two hours will be spent inside working on contest music and stand tunes as a full group and then two hours outside at the field with marching fundamentals and body work.
