USSBA seeking inquiries from potential 2011 Indoor hosts

Preliminary schedule to be in place by mid-summer

After a successful inaugural season in the world of indoor, the US Scholastic Band Association has opened the search for potential indoor event hosts for 2011, the second season of the USSBA’s colorguard and indoor percussion competition. 

The 2011 season will return with local competitions and clinics beginning in late January and continuing through early April.  The date and location of the USSBA Indoor Championships has not yet been determined, however a preliminary draft of the schedule will be in place by mid-summer with registrations to begin in early autumn. 

“The USSBA had a wonderful first season in part because the hosts for the first year were so great to work with,” said Sean King, Director of the USSBA.  “We hope to add more sites to provide students with opportunities to showcase their talents, while presenting hosts with quality fundraising events.” 

Key to the successful expansion of the USSBA Indoor program will be finding new hosts in the core areas of the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia regions. “Managed growth is of the utmost importance as we balance the ability to recruit and train new judges, while providing excellent experiences to the overall number of units,” said King. 

“Given these days of budget restrictions, the goal for the USSBA is to provide all units interested in the USSBA philosophy of competition the opportunity to participate in an event within easy travel distance of their school,” said Tara-Lee Bryant, Local Event Host Manager for the USSBA. 

“We have proven we have an affordable package for hosts that provides the same trademark quality adjudication and service for the winter activity as we do in the fall,” said Bryant. “We welcome all units interested in finding out more about USSBA Indoor to contact us about the very exciting indoor season.” 

Units interested in hosting a 2011 event, should complete a Letter of Intent form by CLICKING HERE.  Shortly after submitting the intent form, potential hosts will receive information from the USSBA, including schedule options, fees and unit participation. 

Completing a Letter of Intent form is not a commitment to hosting an event, nor does it guarantee a 2011 USSBA date.  For the purpose of this inquiry, it merely provides the USSBA with contacts and information necessary to move forward with the host selection process. 

Questions about the 2011 Indoor season should be directed to Bryant at tara@yea.org, or by telephone at (610) 821-0345, Ext. 119.
