USSBA contests in Texas await you and your band in 2010

More than a dozen events scheduled for the Lone Star State

A full dozen USSBA contests will be held this fall throughout the Lone Star State, including each of the major metropolitan areas of DFW, Austin, San Antonio and Houston, plus returning events in Laredo, Corpus and a first-of-its kind small school band event in Groesbeck.  

“As of Aug. 25, more than 100 bands are  registered to participate in at least one USSBA event this fall, with many bands scheduled to participate in more than one event which is an excellent indication that directors see the value in the feedback and consistency the USSBA offers, “ said Sean King, Director of the USSBA.  

Each event features a post-event critique, allowing participating bands to receive feedback immediately following the contest on their performance, receiving quality analysis on areas of improvement and accomplishment. 

Beginning with the Preview series of events scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 25, bands in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio areas can benefit from critique from accomplished panels of adjudicators and clinicians who provide feedback on the band’s program from the earliest part of the season.  The “Bring What Ya Got” philosophy allows band directors and staff to receive analysis based on half-baked, or not fully ripened, ideas in a supportive, positive risk-taking environment.  

Saturday, Sept. 25 – Preview Day
North Texas Preview – Red Oak HS – Red Oak, TX
Central Texas Preview – Hendrickson HS – Pflugerville, TX
San Antonio Preview – New Braunfels HS – New Braunfels, TX

The regular season gets underway with two weeks of contests across the state from Fort Worth to Austin to San Antonio to the coast on Oct. 2. 

Great judging panels are enlisted to provide bands with terrific experiences on and off the field, as the hard work of the first month of school is on display at five events.

The 2010 season concludes with the USSBA Texas State Championships at Woodforest Stadium in Conroe, TX where more than 40 bands will contend for state titles.  Enrollment is very close to the maximum number of bands, so we encourage all bands interested to complete their registration by Sept. 1 to ensure a performance opportunity for their band.
