Basketball Band!

General Information

It's time for basketball season and basketball band. We are looking for a solid group of students to play at selected home games. Marching band instrumentation is used. A decent representation from all sections is necessary to look and sound good. Basketball band is directed by Mr. Jensen & Mr. Silverman and plays the same type of music used in the stands at football games - mainly during time outs and between quarters - to create a positive, supportive environment. Required attire is the Jenks Trojan Pride Travel Shirt or Jenks Trojan Pride Hoodie. 8th Grade Band Members have the option to participate in basketball band. This provides high school band members the opportunity to get to know and mentor future band members. There are two after-school rehearsals in December - the first one is just student leaders & battery with the 8th grade band members. The second is the main rehearsal with full group. Basketball band is for letter points AND a grade. Students should not sign up to participate if they cannot commit to full participation at rehearsals and games. Students will receive 25 letter points for proper participation in basketball band.

Rehearsal are scheduled for:
Friday, December 9th, 6:00-8:00pm (student leaders and battery only) (Cancelled)
Tuesday, December 13th, 6:00-8:00pm (full group)

Selected home games for Basketball Season
Friday, January 13th vs. Bartlesville
Tuesday, January 24th vs. Sapulpa
Tuesday, January 31st vs. Bixby
