Legacy of Champions Volunteer Training

If you have signed up for a volunteer position for the Legacy of Champions, we ask that you to join us Thursday night (9/29/16) at 7:00pm in the band room for official volunteer training. We want to take some one-on-one time with each volunteer group to make sure you understand where to report, your duties, and the expectations for the day. This will be a great time to ask questions and make sure you are properly prepared to provide a gold standard experience to each and everyone of our guests who join us for our competition.

Band Jacket Personalization

Many have asked about having student’s names added to their new band jackets. If you wish to do this, you can to take them to Ozier Apparel and they will ad their name for $5. By taking them to Ozier, who produced the jackets originally, we can ensure that our new band jackets, which are part of official uniform are homogeneous.
