With every week and event that passes, USSBA Indoor touches many more lives, providing fantastic performance opportunities for students of all ages. This Saturday, the team takes the pageantry to Norristown, Pa., as 13 dance, colorguard and percussion groups celebrate their passion to drum, dance, spin and entertain! 

Norristown High School will host the second USSBA Indoor event, welcoming family and fans to cheer on scholastic groups in middle and high school.  

Show start time: 10 a.m.

Awards/Critique: 1 p.m.

Tickets: Adults $10, Students $8

Fans can look forward to an exhibition by the Northampton High School Arena Band which will perform an indoor version of last year's field show.

"Arena bands are a new twist in the exciting area of Indoor," said Sean King, Director of the USSBA. "We are looking to provide more of these types of performance opportunities for scholastic groups. Bands interested in performing at any of our indoor events should contact Tim Gallagher or Tara Lee Bryant to make arrangements."

Special features unique to USSBA Indoor 

Groups and fans can enjoy several aspects to the circuit unique only to USSBA Indoor. Under the percussion format, Zildjian Indoor Percussion Presented by the USSBA (ZIP), groups can perform in a standstill category. ZIP features A/AA/AAA categories serving varying levels of achievement for each unit, from Basic to Intermediate to Advanced. Performance groups will consist of Marching, Concert and a brand new level, Standstill Battery/Pit. This newest level allows participation by groups who may be challenged by limited resources and rehearsal facilities to participate actively in ZIP. 

Also added to the format is a Junior A level for colorguards, specific to middle and junior high school guards that will perform using the A Class criteria, but never against high school-aged groups.  

“The USSBA Indoor circuit is designed to reward the young performers who spend hundreds of hours of blood, sweat and tears on gym floors, many of which we will never see,” said Colorguard Education Director Beverly Brahan. “They are the reason the USSBA continues to grow and reach for dreams that make lifelong memories!” 

Get in on the FUN! 

Many performance opportunities remain in the USSBA Indoor’s 10-week season that culminates with the USSBA Indoor Championship on April 17th in Trenton, N.J.
