Marching band is an extra-curricular outgrowth of the band program. The marching band is comprised of instrumentalists including drumline and colorguard. Marching Band performs at all home football games, the Memorial Day and 4th of July Parades, and several competitions per year. Band Camp (pre-season training), which takes place in August, is where students learn the fundamentals of marching and the competitive and half-time field shows.
