Hello Marching Band Families,

We have some exciting volunteering opportunities for you this week and next!

Be a Viking Volunteer!
During band camp over the next two weeks, we need parents to bring ice; sort, sew, and label competition uniforms; and help with uniform fittings. The uniform fittings require Level 2 clearance, but the other two jobs don’t. Please help out in any way you can:

Volunteer Sign-Ups

We have well over 100 students to outfit over the next two weeks, so thank you in advance for pitching in!

Please remember: Since the Olympic gate is closed for construction most days until about 5:00 p.m., volunteers may need to either find street parking up near the Michigan gate (2-hour limit) or pay for parking at the Civic Center. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Mass Uniform Try-on for Returning Musicians Wednesday!
All returning musicians will try on their uniforms from last year at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 8. Please make sure they bring or wear the clothes that they typically wear beneath their competition uniforms (shorts or leggings with a rehearsal T-shirt, socks, and Dinkles, if they have some that still fit). We will have shoes for students to try on if they do not bring their own Dinkles on Wednesday.

We’ll also have lollipops for any returning student who wears his or her Viking helmet rehearsal t-shirt to the fitting! (Go Vikings! :-))

Other Uniform Fittings
We will be fitting new musicians (and returning musicians who grew out of last year’s uniform) throughout this week and next. Students typically wear a t-shirt and either shorts or leggings under their band uniforms. We will have extra Dinkles marching band shoes on hand for the fittings – just make sure your child wears a t-shirt, shorts/leggings, and socks to camp!

Questions? Send an email to Band Parents Association President Alisa Stewart at or reach out to our VP of Marching Band, Yunilda Esquivel, at

See you on the field!
