Can I watch?
It would truly be a shame for any band parent to miss this event. All the football games, Tuesday evening practices and prior tournaments – it all comes down to this! This event always takes your breath away. Don’t forget to wear your Royal Regiment gear and cheer like crazy for our kids!
What do I need to know as a parent?
Our students made many sacrifices to get to this point – instead of hanging with friends on Saturdays they toiled on practices fields and performed in hard fought tournaments. At this point any pressure they may feel is hopefully reduced by the familiarity of the routine practiced for so many hours. By now the marching and music should be second nature. All that’s left is to put one’s game face on and execute a personal best. THE STUDENTS DESERVE OUR STANDING OVATION WHEN THEY ENTER THE STADIUM!
Volunteers are always needed. Ask a Band Booster board member or committee chair how you can help for a single day or multiple activities throughout the band season. Click here to view current volunteer opportunities or sign up for an event.
