Patriot Band Registration

2022-2023

Let's get ready for 2022-2023!

This site is your one-stop-shop for all of your Patriot Band registration information. Please read carefully through all of the following information. Our organization is large and is comprised of different sections, who may at times have different needs and schedules, but all come together to form the Lakeview Centennial Patriot Band. Find specific information below for each group, including New Members. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.


We are so excited to have you as part of our band family!


*A quick note about auditions: All students are welcome and will have a place in the Patriot Band. Auditions do not determine if a student will be accepted into the program; they only serve to help us place each student where they will be best set up for success.*

Sports Physical - Due June 9th

Per UIL rules, students must now provide a sports physical and medical history in order to participate in marching band activities. Every member of the program will need to have a physical exam completed and turn in a physical form with medical history to the band staff before they will be allowed to participate in marching band/color guard activities in July.


Students will have an opportunity to get their physical done at LCHS on Friday, May 6th 1:30-4:30pm. Students should report to the gym and will be seen on a first come-first served basis. Physicals will be $10 and should be paid with cash.

UIL Physical Form

This form should also be available anywhere these physicals are conducted.

Private Lessons

We strongly encourage all members of the band to take advantage of private lesson opportunities. Lessons are incredibly beneficial to every student from Concert Band to the Wind Ensemble. They help students grow and improve individually, which is the best and fastest way for our band to grow and improve as an organization. More information about private lessons can be found on our band website along with student applications and contact information for our amazing private lessons staff.
