Band Camp Reminders

Band Camp starts Monday, August 15th at 8am.  Below are useful links providing reminders of “what, where, when, and what”.

VERY EXCITED – This is going to be an awesome & rewarding experience! This next chapter of SMB & our show Celtic Muse will be the most impressive product we’ve created yet; not to mention the new uniforms we are debuting. Get on board and get excited to make some great memories!

Very Important, the calendar has been fully updated (Main updates are clarity of all Saturday rehearsals/competitions). Attached  below is the updated calendar as well as the SMB Checklist that was handed out in June:

One thing that is not on the checklist, bring a lunch and a snack.

Need more info? Go to https://sherwoodbands.org/marching-band/

Band Parents & Students – Rehearsal Start & End Times are as defined:

Start Time – If rehearsal starts at 8am. We start either moving or stretching right at that time. “We attack at 8am” is what I will say. That means students need to allot for time to park, walk to the band room, socialize (as desired), use bathroom, lather sunscreen, assemble equipment, etc. Students should be arriving to SHS about 10-15 minutes ahead of schedule so that they can get setup and to their correct rehearsal spaces on time.

End Time – End time is when rehearsal ends. We end most of our camp rehearsals at 5pm. We take students right up until 5pm on the upper baseball field. It takes us about 20 minutes to strike the field and get back down to the band room. If you are picking your student up from camp, it is a better assumption that they will be ready to leave between 5:20-5:30.

All section leaders have been making contact with their section members throughout the course of the summer. If you haven’t heard from your section leader, you probably are not on our roster or we don’t have your contact info.

Music has been posted and available to print in the members only section https://sherwoodbands.org/members-only-section/ . You will find warmups, show music, and various stands tunes. Print your part only!

MOST IMPORTANT – Start Hydrating and eat healthier than normal. Get rest and make sure you start training yourself to be ready to go at 8am in the morning. Camp is a huge physical and mental undertaking. You owe it to yourself and your section to take good care of your mind and body! We need you on the field ready to perform!

Band Parents – We still need some help with some side projects. If you want to get involved with our band program here at SHS, please contact  shsbandboostersinfo@gmail.com for more info

See you Monday at 8am!
