Competition Marching Band 2020

Competition band First Year Shirt Day

October 2020

Band Camp Needs:

  • Schedule NO vacations, or doctor appointments during these two weeks of Band Camp. No exceptions or excuses.

  • EAT BREAKFAST: nothing heavy that will make them sick during activities (running, etc.) but something that will get them through till lunch. It is hard work on that field for hours. It is also hard intense work at times; their bodies need to be properly fueled and hydrated.

  • Binder

  • Sheet protectors

  • SUNSCREEN – apply to all exposed areas

  • Water AND Gatorade (to last all day)

  • (Freeze ½ to ¾ overnight then add more in morning so it slowly defrosts during the day)

  • Lunch & Snacks

  • Sunglasses

  • Field Markers – CD’s, checkers, etc., (things that are flat and won’t blow away in the wind. You can personalize them so you won’t get them confused with other marcher’s field markers.)

  • Music (to review)

  • Instruments – in proper working condition.

  • Color Guard equipment (TBD)

  • Sneakers that tie up (with socks.)

  • Deodorant

  • Hand Towel

  • Bandana (color will be decided by sections)

  • Zip lock bag for cell phones: They do practice in the rain and phones have been ruined because of it.

  • Clothing for all weather: hot/cold/rain BE PREPARED

  • Competition Band Show T-Shirts – *Mandatory purchase for all comp band students*. This Shirt is worn for the Parent Preview.

  • The Parent Preview is held on the Football field at 4pm on the Final Friday of Band Camp. This is to show off their hard work and the show to family and friends.
