Parents, Family, and Friends - Join every performance!

Parents, Family & Friends - We Want and Need Your Help!

It is impossible for the students to be successful at football games and marching contests without the help of parents, family, and friends taking an active role!


It is a ton of fun and your appreciation and understanding of what your student is doing will change dramatically!

Here is a short list of what we need help with at every contest and football game:

  • Get food to students. — We feed every student at every game and contest. We need people to make sure that all students get a meal and organize the quick and efficient delivery to the students.
  • Help setup and move front ensemble (percussion) equipment and props. — The students do a ton of work to set everything up, but they need help moving things onto the field and in and out of warm up areas and the stadium.
  • Chaperone busses. — Any time we travel, we need at least one adult on the bus with students. This is a super easy job as our students are fantastic. Literally just ride the bus and make sure that everyone is onboard. (After riding the bus, there are tons of opportunities to still help at the event.)
  • Pickup, setup, and help distribute water/ice. — We always want to make sure that the students have enough water at all events. We need people to help obtain ice, load coolers, and make sure that water is always available to our students.


As you can see - it takes a ton of people to make the students successful! Please sign up for one or more of our upcoming events. This link is always updated with the upcoming events.


There is even a spot for you to sign up if you just want to help but don't know where to start!


You will have more fun that you realize!
