Hydration Information for all Marching Band Students

It is critically important to have a proper water container available during marching band activities - throughout the season.

Having their own water source helps ensure the marcher has access to get the hydration they need in the most safe, effective, and hygienic way possible.

1/2 gallon or 1 gallon water jugs as pictured below can be found at retailers such as Target,, Walmart, and more. Every marcher should have one!
