Online Registration is closed, however you can still perform.

Location: Similar to prior years, the morning rehearsal will be at Redcoat Field at the Intramural Field #9 off College Station Rd., with suggested parking in the Intramural Fields Deck. Download campus map from FAQs below.
Call time: TBD. Because kickoff time is determined by television broadcast contracts, this will almost certainly not be known until October 4, and possibly as late as October 9.
Borrowed Wind Instruments (PLEASE READ):
Baritones, Mellophones, or Sousaphones: If you need to borrow one of these instruments, availability will be limited. If possible, we recommend bringing your own instrument, even if this requires use of a concert instrument (e.g., Horn instead of Mellophone).
Requests to borrow available Baritones, Mellophones, or Sousaphones will be honored on a first-come-first-served basis, based on when you complete your registration. Requests for refunds cannot be honored.

You must have a game ticket to participate. Even though the Redcoat Alumni Band ticket block is completely sold (as of July 8), there are numerous other ticket sources for you to obtain your own game ticket(s).
You must have a smartphone for e-ticket delivery, as they will be loaded into your Apple Wallet or Google Pay.
