Well, believe it or not our 2016 season officially begins this week! The Trojans open their football season on Thursday night at 7:00pm against Newnan in the UWG Kickoff Classic held at the university’s football stadium. Our full itinerary and general instructions can be found below.
Also, as we head into this week’s final preparations we must make sure we have all of the volunteers needed to have a successful performance and season. The band program and students are counting on our band parents, guardians, and supporters to be committed to supporting them by volunteering for the many duties needed to enable them to do what they do best. So please, take a minute below to see where you can volunteer… We need you and are counting on your support.

We still have a few more spots open for bus chaperones! These volunteer heroes join the students on the buses as they travel to away games, competitions, concert performances, etc. This is a season-long commitment, so this is the only sign-up this duty will appear on, so don’t wait to sign-up!
Additionally, with this year’s show we will not be needing as many field show volunteers but there are many others duties available, like equipment loading and unloading, front ensemble assistants, etc. Duties will vary from week to week depending on if we are home or away. So please, volunteer your time and talents this week, please sign-up now or visit our Volunteer page.
As a special treat, we will also perform a crowd favorite as we pull our enormous American flag! We will not be signing up for this specific task, but will need about 40 people to help us, so if you can help and want to take part in this amazing Trojan Tradition, join us on at the back of the field about 6 minutes before half-time for instruction.
Thank you for all your support. We are looking forward to another great season by our Trojan Band!
