Summer Band

Summer Band is a required week-long training camp held the week prior to the start of the fall semester. During that week we work on music and marching fundamentals, and learn the drill and music for our pregame and halftime shows. Summer Band 2023 will run from Saturday August 12 - Friday August 18. 

Visual Mini-Camps

We offer an optional instructional camp for wind players in July (no instruments required). This 3-hour mini-camp gives all potential members an opportunity to learn our marching technique prior to Summer Band. Our next set of mini-camps will be Summer of 2024.
