USSBA gears up for series of fall 2011 schedule announcements

Stay close as we unveil the Regional, Championship & full event line-up

Stay close to www.usbands.org as the USSBA releases 2011 fall show dates in the coming weeks.

As show hosts come on board, and stadiums are locked in for the coming fall season, the US Scholastic Band Association has set dates on schedule announcements for 2011. 

Mark your Outlook calendars for show and venue announcements for these 2011 schedules: 

  • Week of Jan. 3 – Announcement of the 2011 USSBA Regional & Championship Schedule
  • Week of Jan. 17 – Announcement of the 2011 USSBA Texas Schedule
  •  
  • Week of Feb. 7 – Announcement of the Full 2011 USSBA Schedule
  •  
  • Week of Feb. 21 – Registrations Open for the Full 2011 USSBA Schedule

“Our goal is to keep you informed, and allow band directors the most lead time possible in planning their fall marching season,” said Sean King, Director of the USSBA.  “Show hosts are still encouraged to submit their letters of intent to guarantee their show dates by the Early Bird Deadline of Jan. 7.” 

The USSBA has already announced the date and venue for the Sixth Annual National Championship to be held Nov. 4-6, 2011 and the first Marine Corps Invitational event on Sept. 24, 2011 – both to be held at the gorgeous Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. 

Have you heard about our Loyalty Program for hosts in 2011? 

We want to be able to offer the hosts who have been with the USSBA this past season the opportunity to lock in their dates first, and extend a bit of a discount to each of them as part of our Early Bird plan! 

All RETURNING Local Hosts and Member Bands are to submit the Letter of Intent to Tara-Lee Bryant via email by Dec. 15.  Please make sure to include three dates that will work for your program in order of preference.  This will help finalize your date before we open the doors to the world.  

All new and prospective Local Hosts may submit their Letter of Intent at the same time, however loyal USSBA hosts will have their dates reserved first and the remaining on a first come, first serve basis. 

Early bird fee discounts will also be extended as part of the Host Loyalty program, with the USSBA offering a 10 percent discount on the fee for their Silver or Gold event for 2011 when paid in full by 5 p.m. on Jan. 7, 2011.  Prices for all Silver and Gold shows will remain at the full 2010 level with no price increase for the coming season.  

As in previous years, payment in full for the entire amount of your event will be due to take advantage of the Early Bird discount.  However, payment in full by Jan. 7 at 5 p.m. can guarantee all hosts, whether new or returning, savings over the 2011 regular fees. 

For those hosts who will not be taking advantage of the Early Bird discount, there remains a deposit requirement to hold your date and have the event be posted on our website.  The deposit amount continues to be $750 and needed to confirm your entry by Feb. 1 at the very latest.  

Feel free to contact Tara-Lee at tara@yea.org, or (610) 821-0345, Ext. 119, with any questions about hosting a local show or how we can work together to better an already existing event.
