The Football Marching Band is comprised of instrumentalists, percussionists, color guard and dance performers. The band participates in every home and away football game as a part of the pregame show, stand music, and halftime show. Members also participate in various parades and pep rallies throughout the fall semester. Membership in this ensemble is based on auditions held each spring semester. Incoming Freshman members will attend Rookie Camp at the end of their 8th grade school year. All band members are required to attend a two-week band camp during the last two weeks of summer break, must be enrolled in the appropriate Fall semester band, dance or colorguard class, and have required weekly practices after school. The majority of football games will be on Friday nights, but games can also fall on Thursday evenings. One game will also fall at the beginning or end of Fall semester break.
