FOOTBALL GAME EXPECTATIONS for the Season:

Fairfield football games are some of the best times you will have as a member of the marching band. In order to ensure that everyone enjoys him/herself, and that we represent our school and organization the best we can, it is important that we all follow a few guidelines.

  • Sit with your section in the stands designated for our group.
  • Be prepared to play at all times. (This means that you have music in a flip folder, and are listening for instructions.)
  • Play only YOUR instrument. Remember, the majority of people that hear us perform, will hear us at a football game!
  • ONLY play when the entire group is playing.
  • Remain in full uniform unless given permission to do otherwise. Jackets of uniforms may only be removed if the designated marching band shirt is on underneath the uniform.
  • Third quarter is yours to have fun, and enjoy your friends. EVERYONE must be back in the stands with instrument ready to play at the end of the third quarter. If one person is late the entire band will sit in the stands during third quarter the following game.
  • We will supply water for you. Concessions may only be eaten third quarter and mustnot be brought back into the stands.

Please note:

If a student is not going to be riding the bus home from an event; a signed note from the parent must be shown to and signed by a director.  The note must then be giving to the student’s chaperone and the chaperone must see parent and student together before they leave.  This is our way of ensuring the safety of our students. J  Thanks for your cooperation.
