The Drumlines will be trained to perform in high visibility events and to compete in local, regional and national events. Music experience with any instrument or the ability to read music is helpful, but not required. The team will also learn social etiquette and sportsmanship and how pursuit of excellence will help their higher educational pursuits and open up opportunities for long-term careers.
The 2023-2024 Drumline is expected to be a hybrid program with musicians alternating between virtual and in-person practices. The schedule will be determined between the musicians and coaches at the start of the season.
The team requires discipline and a willingness to learn and adapt. It will demand the utmost in respect from the musicians, instructors and staff alike. The musicians will be asked to do things that their peer organizations might not do (no cursing; strict rules around decorum, attendance and punctuality; practice routine and drills) and it should be understood that they must confirm to all of our rules in order to participate.
ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY ARE STRICT. This is NOT a drop-in program. If you cannot commit to attending practices every week (exceptions are made for sickness, family concerns and school events), on time, this is not the program for you.
