Juan Seguin Incoming Freshman Information
Dear Cougar Band Member,
We are very excited to welcome you to the Award-Winning Cougar Band program at Juan Seguin High School! We pride ourselves on a tradition of excellence and are eager to welcome you to the Cougar Band Family! As we prepare for this next stage, there are several things that we have in place to help the transition into high school go smoothly for you!
Freshman Mini-Camp is scheduled for May 30 and 31 at the Seguin HS Band Hall from 5-7 pm. This will be a fun way to get to know some of the Cougar Band student leadership team, as well as learn some marching fundamentals we will be using this upcoming season.
On Saturday, June 2, we will have a Band Registration Day in the Seguin HS Band Hall. Incoming freshmen will meet at 9:00 am. This is a time to take care of the paperwork, fees, and shirt sizes associated with high school marching band. This is also a great opportunity for parents to meet the high school band directors and learn more about the Cougar Band!
4th of July Parade Camp
The city of Arlington hosts the largest 4th of July parade in the state and all of the HS marching bands participate! To prepare you for our annual first performance of the year, we will rehearse July 1-3 from 8am to noon. We will finish the rehearsal on the 3rd with a band cookout before we perform at the parade on July 4th!
Summer Band Camp
Finally, we will begin preparing for next year’s marching season on July 29th! This is the beginning of our two week summer band camp. Camp hours will run weekdays from 7:30 am until 4:00 pm from July 30 – August 10th. This is the time where we will be playing all of our new music for next year, as well as strengthen our marching abilities. We are thrilled to start learning next year’s marching show, “Beyond the Horizon!”
We are very excited to begin this new journey with you! Please feel free to contact us with any questions!!
