USSBA Indoor Championship this Saturday in Trenton, N.J.

Show Details: Tickets, Line-Ups, Parking, and MORE!

At a venue truly fitting of a Championship, nearly 50 scholastic dance, colorguard and percussion groups will make history on Saturday as the USSBA Indoor team hosts its grandest event of the season at the stunning Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J.  

The US Scholastic Band Association will hold its Inaugural USSBA Championships for Colorguard and the Zildjian Indoor Percussion Championships Presented by the USSBA starting at 10 a.m. The event will capture the talent and hard work displayed every weekend by groups that began performing, some for the first time ever, back in early February. 

The day of pageantry will include nearly 30 colorguard and dance groups that visually inspire through dance, spinning flags, rifles, sabers and other equipment while performing to music of all types. Nearly 20 percussion units, both standstill and on the move, will dazzle with their technique and skill in both battery and front ensemble instrumentation. 

Coming to the Sun National Bank Center for the first ever Championship will be something memorable for these performers, according to Sean King, Director of the USSBA. “Generally, most of these kids only get to perform in high school gymnasiums, so this arena will have a profound impact on their experience. And that’s just what the USSBA Indoor hopes to achieve – giving these students an experience of a lifetime!” 

A spectacular venue isn’t the only criteria set by the USSBA Indoor team. A student-centered philosophy emphasizes the positive life skills fostered through performance while fair and quality adjudication reinforces a rewarding experience. 

“Sum it all up, and the USSBA is here to give students, directors and instructors in the pageantry arts a day they will never forget,” said King
