Welcome

Are you new to marching band and want to learn more? This page is full of helpful information.  Just keep scrolling to learn more. 


Basic information about marching band:
Marching band officially starts in the spring with a few clinics to help our students learn the fundamentals of marching. In the summer we have regular practices, a few parades, and various camps. In the fall, we participate in home football games, continue to work on our competitive field show and participate in local competitions against bands from all over Utah. We wind up our season with a trip to St. George to compete at our state finals and a regional Bands of America competition which includes bands from anywhere in the United States. 

Who can be in marching band?
Marching band includes 9th-12th grade students who play instruments as well as students who choose to be in the color guard. We welcome both boys and girls to participate in color guard...no experience necessary. To learn more about color guard please visit our Color Guard Page.

Can I really get Fit for Life credit for participating in marching band? Yes! All 10th-12th grade students have the option to earn their Fit for Life credit when they participate in marching band. In order to earn Fit for Life credit you'll need to sign up for the class through the high school. You'll also need to complete some online work through Canvas and take two physical fitness tests. Please click here for a full explanation

Do you have a calendar with your practices and events? Yes we do! Scroll down the page to view blackout dates, competition dates, and a general outline of practices. View the Band Calendar for the most up to date information. 
 
Is marching band fun? Yes marching band is fun! Our marching band students work together and play together as they attend rehearsals, band socials, section parties, football games, competitions and more! This is where they'll make lasting friendships that will see them through high school and beyond. Our marching band placed 3rd in the state for 6A Open schools and 4th at the BOA regional competition in 2023...and that was a lot of fun too!

Can I see one of your slideshows or watch your field shows? Absolutely! Visit our Media Gallery page if you'd like to watch a fun slideshow that gives a recap of the season and a glimpse into what participating in a year of marching band is like. You can also see some of our past field shows on this page.

I still have a few more questions. Great! Please feel free to reach out to our band director, color guard director, or our band booster president (parent association). We'd love to talk with you!
