WPHS Marching Band Volunteers:
Field Pass Wristbands:
Per 2017 CBA policy, anyone entering the field with the band must have either a CBA Director/Staff pass or a performance-specific Field Pass wristband, this includes all pit and prop volunteers. Separate Field Pass wristbands will be used for prelims and finals performances. These wrist bands will be red balloons.
Restrooms: Spectator restrooms are located under the press box in the stadium. There are also Porta-pots available around the student areas, including warm-up.
Band Seating: Band students are welcome to enjoy the south portion of the spectator stands until they become too crowded and the space is needed for paying spectators. The bleachers on the east side of the stadium are available for all bands. All groups are encouraged to make use of those bleachers at any time, taking into consideration that being a respectful audience is still expected so as to not disturb any performances.
