General Requirements

Age

You must be between the ages of 14 and 21 years old by May 31st. 22 year olds are eligible to march if your birthday is on or after June 1st. We believe that students all over this age range can be successful in our organization as long as you are committed to excellence and willing to put in the work.

Talent

Unless otherwise stated, you should have experience in brass, percussion (battery or front ensemble), colorguard or marching band. You will be evaluated by our educational staff at all audition and rehearsal events with the expectation of improvement over time. Goals and objectives will be based on materials in the audition packet and in-person discussions at audition events.

Attitude

Every single day, we get up and go to work. We live by those words and expect you to live by them, too. You will be pushed harder than you ever have before, and there will be times where you will be tempted to give up. Positivity and perseverance will see you and your fellow performers through the easy and more difficult days.

Health & Fitness

The rehearsal, performance, and travel schedule involved are extremely demanding, and a full health history and physical exam are required by every performer every performing season to adequately assess your fitness. It is crucial that you are able to withstand the physical, mental, and emotional toll of the day-to-day. This information is to ensure that our medical staff is able to adequately assist you during the season should you need it.

Attendance

CURRENT PLANS ARE TO BEGIN IN PERSON REHEARSALS NO EARLIER THAN FEB OF 2021. If you are offered a call back or a contract, you are required to attend every rehearsal event required by your section. Please review the camp schedule and note any conflicts with school events. These must be discussed with your caption staff as soon as you know about them. Last minute/emergency school and family events should be communicated with your caption staff as soon as possible.

Financial Commitment

All member fees are mandatory. We expect that you will have developed a plan to meet the financial commitment before you audition. Payments should be made on time according to the schedule outlined in your contract. Any financial issues should be communicated right away to determine if any assistance can be offered. See the financial page for a more detailed outline of this commitment.
