Uniform distribution will be in the chorus room Wednesday, Aug. 15, and Thursday, Aug. 16, immediately after the Inside Practice session of band camp. To receive a uniform, membership deposits must be paid.
On your fitting day, all band members must bring the following. All forms can be found on our Handbooks and Forms page.
Wednesday, August 15 – 4:15-5:30pm - Seniors and Juniors
Thursday, August 16 – 4:15-5:30pm - Sophomores, Freshmen, & 8th & 7th Graders
With a completed Uniform Control Sheet, all Band members will receive:
Marching Band Shoes:
All band members also must have official Marching Band shoes. Please print out and complete the Shoe Order form. Completed shoe orders and the accompanying check must be brought to your uniform fitting. Band shoes are $39.00. Extended-size shoes are $43.50. Costs include shipping.
We order band shoes one time to avoid additional shipping costs, and to ensure that band members receive their shoes before the Labor Day Parade. Please do not forget your order forms and checks when you come to your uniform fitting.
A limited number of used shoes also will be available during uniform distribution for $10.00. Please note this on your order form.
Marching Band & Guard Windbreakers:
NEW MEMBERS: Before the first competition, all new Band & Guard members will receive personalized embroidered front-zip hooded windbreakers at NO ADDITIONAL COST. The customized windbreaker will be yours to keep after graduation. Please complete the Windbreaker Sizing & Personalization form, and bring it with you on your Uniform Distribution Day. If you are unsure of your size, we will have sample windbreakers for sizing during the two distribution days. Remember, these go over your uniform and any layers you add in cold weather, and should last until graduation.
RETURNING MEMBERS: If you have changed sections or received a leadership position, please print out and complete the Windbreaker Embroidery Update form, and bring both the completed form and your windbreaker on your Uniform Distribution Day. There is no additional charge for additional section name or leadership position embroidery. If you have lost your windbreaker, or need a different size, you may order a replacement at your own expense.
Lost/Damaged Windbreakers During the Season:
As we move forward, please bear in mind that if a student damages or loses their new customized windbreaker during the band season, the NHSBPC will provide a replacement out of our old stock of pullover windbreakers on a temporary basis. However, the loaner must be returned, and a replacement jacket will need to be purchased by the student at the beginning of the next season.
By owning their own windbreaker, students have the option of wearing them to school on Fridays prior to our competitions. At nearly 95 strong, that will be a lot of musical blue and gold walking through the halls!
Please make note of the Uniform Care information too!
Thank you for making sure our band looks great this season.
