2017 Preseason Information
Students and families will be able to attend information meetings that will take place in the UHS Band Room (room 1243) to learn about expectations, procedures, requirements, and ask any questions they may have. Freshman, 1st year members, and their families are strongly encouraged to attend these meetings and ask as many questions as they'd like. STUDENTS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN BEING IN TIGER MARCHING BAND SHOULD SIGN UP FOR THE CLASS WITH THEIR COUNSELOR ON THEIR RESPECTIVE REGISTRATION DATE.
Camp TMB: Our preseason camp will cover fundamentals, music rehearsals, drill and routine, and team building and is required of all members. Camp TMB is scheduled from July 31 - August 4 and August 7 - 11 from 9am-12pm, 1:30pm-4:30, and 6pm-8pm each day (please see calendar for exceptions). We understand that conflicts take place and ask that any conflicts be addressed one week beforehand in order to be considered and excused for a grade (excuses can be filed via the absence request page of this website).
Expectations: Students will be expected and required to attend all competitions and performances in accordance with our attendance policy. Students will be expected and required to memorize their music by the determined date. Students will be expected and encouraged to practice on their own time and seek help from section leaders, drum majors, and the directors if they are struggling with music, drill, or any element within the Tiger Marching Band.
Can I do Sports and TMB at the Same Time?: Absolutely! Many of our students have participated in soccer, tennis, cross country, swimming, and football while still performing with the Tiger Marching Band. Since our competitions are graded and required, you are expected to attend them over any sports obligations you may have. It is the student's responsibility to notify both the TMB directors and their coaches for any conflicts that may arise.
