Saturday, October 15, 2022 - vs. Belleville West 
(see afternoon game itinerary - scroll down)

Friday, October 21, 2022 - vs. Granite City

Keep your schedule flexible for the possibility of performing in the playoffs! These games will be on either Friday night or Saturday afternoon. We WILL perform in playoff games if possible. The only reasons that the band will not perform would be due to prior commitments inclucing IMEA Concert Band Festival on Nov. 2 or IMEA Jazz Festival Nov. 9. Each of these events have already been scheduled.

7:00 PM - Kick Off - For the first half, the band will sit in the end zone bleachers and play stands tunes. When 6 minutes are remaining in the 2nd quarter, we will warm up. We will take the field for half time as soon as the second quarter is over.  
7:45 PM - Approximate time for halftime - after halftime, the band will exit the field toward side 1 and continue to the band room for dismissal. Parents we will not be doing the spiral at this time so that we can quickly put things away and dismiss students back to the game (if they wish). Once we dismiss, students are free to go. See special instructions for Saturday games)

Times may adjust slightly as instructions may be given.

During the first half of the game we will SIT in the bleachers in your section. You may not randomly get up and wander around. You must stay with the band and in your section. Your non band friends may not visit with you until the 3rd quarter. At 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, you must make your way to your seats in the bleachers.
