The marching "Band of Blue" performs during the fall semester at pep rallies, home football games, and in local holiday parades.  ANY STUDENT who completed a full year of concert ban din 8th grade is eligible to participate in marching band, even if htey are not scheduled for Symphonic Band in the fall or spring semesters.

The marching band season kicks off every year with a summer band camp on the CATA campus.  Summer marching camp is an essential first step towards a successful marching season.  During camp students learn marching fundamentals, pep band music, and begin learning set design and music for a halftime show.  Read the Band of Blue Camp Survival Guide to be prepared for a fun and safe camp season!

Once the school year begins, marching band rehearses after school hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6 pm.

DRUM LINE TRYOUTS will take place on Wednesday, August 5 from 9am-4pm on the first day of the Drum Line mini camp.

Marching band depends heavily on teamwork, collaboration and commitment on the part of EVERY student.  Therefore it is important that ALL students plan to attend ALL rehearsals. Once you commit to participating in the Band of Blue, please respect the commitment of others by planning weekend getaways, doctor/dental appointments, and driver's education around the marching band schedule.
