Welcome to the Poly Proud Heritage Marching Band & Color Guard!
We are dedicated to providing students with a quality, well-rounded marching experience. We serve our community through performances at sporting events, parades, assemblies, school events, and competitions. Our program is a matter of pride for our school and community and maintains a high level of responsibility in providing excellent performances. Inside the school, we are a large part of creating a positive culture that is beneficial to all students.
You are going to be outside for large amounts of time. The higher the SPF the better. You will want someone to help you get your back area too. Bring your sunscreen with you and plan to reapply.
This all-important document will keep you heading the right direction at the right time.
You will want a water jug, not just a standard water bottle. Your best bet is an insulated, one gallon (or larger) water jug. This will allow you to drink one quart per hour. The insulation helps to keep the water cool, which you will want on a hot July day.
You can't wear anything other than athletic shoes during rehearsals (with socks). Your feet will swell after a rehearsal block. To give them relief, wear sandals during meals and free time. Bring them in your field bag. Prepare to show off your awesome sock tan.
We wear hats at band camp to keep the top of our heads cool and protected from the sun.
Clothing needs to be cool and appropriate for outdoor athletic exercise. We ask that band shirts (green for musicians and orange for color guard) be worn during rehearsals. Shorts or pants should be black or dark. Please be aware that it might be colder when we start and then heat up throughout the day, or be hot when we start and chilly when we finish. Band hoodies are available but additional warm layers may be needed in the later months of band rehearsals.
