BAND REGISTRATION & UNIFORM FITTING

All marching band students must sign up for a fitting appointment on either Saturday, August 18 or Sunday, August 19. Fitting appointments are 15-minutes. Remember, students MUST be accompanied by at least one parent. Be sure to arrive to your appointment wearing the correct apparel for your fitting.

When signing up for a fitting appointment, please follow these guidelines if your schedule allows:

  • Seniors - Saturday Morning
  • Juniors - Saturday Lunch Time
  • Sophomores - Saturday Afternoon
  • Freshmen - Sunday

Please use the link below to sign up for an appointment:

At your appointment, a parent volunteer will fit you with an Emerald Brigade uniform! Once the best fitting uniform is selected for you, it will be tagged - you will be wearing the same uniform for the entire marching season.

What to Wear to Your Uniform Fitting Appointment

To make sure that you are correctly fitted, you should come to your appointment wearing the same clothing that you will wear under your uniform when you perform:

  • T-shirt
  • Light-weight athletic shorts
  • Crew length socks
  • Black marching shoes, if you have them from last year
  • NO MAKEUP!

Please note that the T-shirt, shorts, and socks that you will wear under your uniform for performances must be black. For your fitting, however, these items can be any color. Makeup of any kind is NOT allowed anytime you wear your uniform - it is very difficult to remove from the fabric.

If you need new shoes and/or gloves

Every band member must have a pair of black marching shoes. Sample shoes in all sizes will be available to try on. Be prepared to purchase new shoes if you do not currently own them. Do not buy shoes on your own. We purchase shoes in bulk. Band members are also required to have black gloves.

The following will be available for purchase on Uniform Fitting day with cash, credit card, or check (made payable to "PHSMB"):

  • New black marching shoes - $50 per pair (order only, pre-paid)
  • Used black marching shoes - $20 per pair (limited number, first-come basis)
  • New black gloves - $3 per pair

Parents - What to Bring to Registration

All registration forms must be submitted before your student can participate in marching band. Registration tables staffed by veteran Music Boosters will be set up in the Band Room near the uniform fitting area. It is recommended that parents go through the registration process after their student has finished their uniform fitting in case they also need to purchase marching shoes and/or gloves.

Please bring the following to Registration:

  • Payment method - cash, credit card, or check (made out to "PHSMB") will be accepted
  • All applicable registration forms
  • Your enthusiastic support - volunteer, donate, and encourage!

Your voluntary tax-deductible donation to the Poway High School Music Boosters (PHSMB) may also be made at Registration. 100% of your donation goes directly to the PHS Instrumental Music Program (Marching Band, Concert Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard). Donations from parents, relatives, alumni, and friends are absolutely vital to the success of the program. The annual budgeted expense per student is funded solely with these donations and PHSMB fundraising activities. If you have any questions about the budget and student expenses, feel free to ask one of the Boosters at the Registration table. All donations are much appreciated by the Music Directors and Staff, and most importantly, our music students.

Stop by the Volunteer Opportunity table to find out how you can help our awesome group of students! Every parent is automatically part of the PHS Music Boosters (PHSMB) organization the moment their student becomes a Band, Color Guard, or Orchestra member. Discover all areas available for your participation during the school year. Pick and choose from many opportunities depending on your availability, talents, and abilities. All of them help the Music Program and ultimately our kids. Our program is year round, and with lots of "ground" to cover - that's a tall order!
