THINGS TO TAKE TO BAND CAMP
MARCHING BAND UNIFORM INFO
Marching Band Families,
I am writing with a few important updates as we prepare for our first competition on Saturday, September 25 at Bellingham High School.
Hair: We are not wearing hats this year. When in uniform anyone with hair that touches their shoulders will pull it back into a low ponytail. Any hair accessories should blend into the student's hair. Anyone with shorter hair will be sure that it is combed and neat. Hairspray may be used to keep hair down and neat. Gel is not recommended as, when the student sweats, it will drip into their eyes.
Jewelry: No jewelry is to be worn in uniform. If an earring or stud cannot be removed the student will cover it with a flesh-toned band aid.
Makeup: Students in the hornline and percussion sections will not wear makeup in uniform. Students in the guard may wear makeup but only as directed and in a uniform manner.
What to wear under your uniform: Our uniforms this year are custom-made and look incredible! The uniforms are not skin-tight but they are form-fitting. As such, students should wear compression-style garments under their uniform. Anything loose will bunch and look lumpy. Tops can be long or short sleeves but the neckline must be a crewneck. We are recommending all students wear compression-style running shorts or leggings. The color of these garments does not matter. All members of the hornline and percussion section will wear calf-height black socks and their black marching shoes.
If any of these guidelines are prohibitive, or if you need more guidance, please do not hesitate to reach out. As I told the student last night... Your job is to give the best performance possible. My job is to make sure you look and sound good doing so.
