The Cadets Could Visit Your Classroom

Cadets in the Classroom 2013

This May, Cadets in the Classroom returns for its third year, as members of The Cadets and Cadets2 will travel to local high schools to spread some summer hype and share their passion for drum corps with band students.

The week before The Cadets' Spring Training, select Cadets and Cadets2 members will accompany the YEA! office team to visit local band classes throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The corps members will have the opportunity to share some personal stories and show a video or two to give high school students a glimpse of what it means to be a Cadet.

“It’s an amazing experience to share The Cadets with so many young people,” said Ashley Pittman, eight-year Cadets guard member who aged out as a colorguard captain last year. Ashley participated in Cadets in the Classroom last year. “We hope we can plant some seeds for future members of The Cadets and Cadets2, but even if we can just make a connection and encourage them to come out and cheer us on in the summer, that would be great! We just want them to know they have a home team to root for.”

We are currently creating the Cadets in the Classroom schedule for May 7-10 and 13-14. If you'd like The Cadets to visit your band room, please contact Allison Watkins at allison@yea.org or 610-821-0345 ext. 121.
