The Fall Athletic Band performs at many different sporting events throughout the Fall semester including volleyball, hockey, and preseason Men’s and Women’s basketball games. Rehearsals are every Monday and Wednesday beginning the first week of class from 6:30 – 8:35 pm* in the Steinbrenner Band Center. (Times are subject to change)
The Spring Athletic Band performs at Men’s Hockey games, Women’s Basketball games, as well as various other spring athletic events. In addition, there is a smaller, auditioned group that performs at the home Men’s Basketball games. Also during the spring, athletic band members have the chance to go on tournament trips for the various sports. The groups chosen for these trips are based on seniority in athletic band. The spring athletic band also performs at the annual OSU Spring Game, where members perform a drill show at halftime. Rehearsals run every Monday and Wednesday from 5:20 – 7:00 PM* in the Steinbrenner Band Center. (Times are subject to change)
The uniform for both the Fall and Spring Semester athletic bands consists of a Polo Shirt with black pants, shoes and socks. The Polo Shirt must be bought from the second floor Uniform Office, and the band member is responsible for purchasing the pants, shoes and socks on their own.
Students have the option of using their own instrument or checking one out from the second floor Instrument Office. All brass and percussion instruments are available to sign out for the entire semester, but unfortunately the office does not provide any woodwind instruments or accessories.
