Band Day participants will…

  • Perform with the Spirit of Gold.

  • Rehearse with the Spirit of Gold prior to the game.

  • Meet current Spirit of Gold band members.

  • Receive a Band Day t-shirt (which will be worn during the performance).

Who can attend Band & Twirler Day?

  • Full high school bands as well as individual band members are welcome to attend Band & Twirler Day!

  • Students must be accompanied by an adult chaperone at a ratio of...

    • 1 chaperone per every 10 students ( ages 9-14 )

    • 1 chaperone per every 12 students (ages 15-18)

    • 1 chaperone per student under 18 (if registering as an individual).
