Introducing the all new SFHS Cub Corps Program!!!
The South Florence Marching Bruins are launching their new "Cub Corps" after-school program for all Southside MS students currently enrolled in a band class.
The program is a marching band preparation program that is designed to prepare students for the SFHS marching band auditions. All students who successfully complete the "Cub Corps" program will be offered a spot in the 2023 SFHS Marching Bruin Band with no Marching Band Audition. Students that do not participate in the program are still welcome to join the program; however, they will have to successfully complete an audition.
The program will meet one day a week, every other week. Each week will focus on a specific skill set that is needed to be a successful member of the SFHS Marching Band.
It is important to note that for a student to "complete" the Cub Corps program and be exempt from auditioning, that student must be at all 5 Cub Corps workshops.
It is also important to note that every Cub Corps Student will have assignments that they will have to work on. Each workshop will focus on 1 skill set that is part of the marching band world. At the final workshop, Mar 29th, each cub corps member will be asked to perform their assignments.
This means that each Cub Corps member will have to earn their spot in the Bruin Marching Band. If a Cub Corps member fails to successfully perform more then 1 of the assignments, they may not be invited to join the Bruin Marching Band. Don't be worried, if you are at each workshop and you're taking the time to practice what is covered, you'll be fine.
If you have a conflict, please contact Mr. Lloyd (email@example.com). Workshops will be held in the band room at Southside Middle School from 4:15 PM to 6 PM on the Wednesdays listed below:
- Feb. 1st
- Feb. 15th
- Mar. 1st
- Mar. 15th
- Mar. 29th
All Southside MS students will need to attend the Cub Corps workshops or audition regardless of prior involvement with the SFHS Marching Band.
