Membership in the EAGLE REGIMENT MARCHING BAND is required of all students enrolled in a band class. To be a member of the Eagle Regiment Marching Band, the student must maintain a G.P.A. of at least a 2.0 (“C” avg.). The student must agree to attend all rehearsals, sectionals and performances and is required to attend the two summer band camps, as follows:
BAND CAMP #1 will be held in June the week after school ends from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. During this camp, students will be taught basic marching fundamentals, music, flag and dance routines, and traditions of the Eagle Regiment.
BAND CAMP #2 will be held two weeks prior to the start of school from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. This camp is an intense week of learning and training for all band and guard members in preparation for the upcoming competition season. This is the time necessary for students to learn the music and show designs the band will employ on the field during halftime shows, the FBA Marching Band Performance Assessment, and various competitions. All Band and Guard members are required to attend this camp. Band Camp #2 is the equivalent of eight weeks of regular rehearsals. Those holding jobs are expected to clear that time so that they will be in full attendance at all activities of Band Camp. Students who miss camp will most likely not be able to participate in band for the upcoming school year.
