The PRIDE is first and foremost a family. A safe place for our students to be together and support each other. Like all families, we have chores that need doing. Every member of The PRIDE has been assigned to a committee with a specific task or chore that the band needs to be done. The overall goal of student committees isn't just to accomplish certain goals, but rather to give each student a feeling of ownership in the band.
There are three shifts or teams. Each week, teams will rotate responsibilities.

The Lining Crew is in charge of ensuring all of the marks on our rehearsal field are clear and freshly painted each week. This includes the white yard lines, sidelines, and hash marks; the pink tick marks, and the red numbers.
The Sound Crew is in charge of ensuring that all of The PRIDE's sound equipment is kept organized and is properly set up prior to rehearsal. The Sound Crew should alter the director immediately if items are in need of repair or replacement.
The Water Crew is in charge of bringing carts and coolers of ice water & sports drink to all outdoor marching band rehearsals. The Water Crew should have coolers set up no less than 10 minutes prior to rehearsal. Coolers are to be emptied and stored back in their proper location at the end of every rehearsal. Members of this crew are allowed in the PMA / Water Storage room, but are charged with keeping it clean and organized.
Field Equipment Crew
The Field Equipment Crew is in charge of ensuring that all field equipment is set up and in place prior to all marching band rehearsals. This equipment includes, but is not limited to: yard line markers, drill aprons, poker chips, props (backdrops), and the drum major podium. Members of the Field Equipment Crew are in charge of properly storing all equipment at the end of each rehearsal and should work in conjunction with the Field Cleaning Crew to ensure that the rehearsal field is left in perfect condition.
Field Cleaners are in charge of picking up all trash at the end of outdoor rehearsals. Trash should be disposed of in the provided bins. If the trash bins begin to overflow, the Field Cleaners are to take the bins to the school dumpster.
Band Room Cleaners
Band Room Cleaners are in charge of ensuring that the main band hall is left in perfect condition at the conclusion of all rehearsals. This includes putting away and stray equipment such as chairs or stands, checking cubbies for trash or food, making sure that instruments are put away properly in a case and stored in a cubby, and clearing the floor of any debris. Band Hall Cleaners should notify the directors immediately if individual equipment is found to not be put away correctly or if items such as food are found in the band room.
Historians are in charge of documenting all events of The PRIDE. Members of this committee should be handy with a camera and be “people persons”. Gopro videos, pictures, anything fun!
