Winter Drumline and Winter Guard
Marching Band season just ended but we are already gearing up for our Winter seasons. Rehearsal schedules, audition dates and parent meetings will be finalized soon but if your student is interested make sure they are talking to the Drumline and Color Guard section leaders for information!
Winter Drumline and Winter Guard are a separate program donation from Marching Band in the fall, as our coaches are working and paid year round and we have to pay registration costs for the winter competitions. Program Donations are $575 for each group and students are required to purchase a costume which is approximately $200.
More details coming soon!
