Marching Band and Colorguard FAQ
Is Marching Band a sport? Is it athletic?
It is very athletic! We consider marching band to be as physically difficult as many other sports on campus. We push our students to be physically and mentally active during the season. Students must pass a school physical in order to participate. Summer conditioning will be pushed so that new students are physically ready for summer camps.

Why is Marching Band expensive?
Gwinnett County, the State of Georgia, and Parkview High School do not fund marching band and because of this 99% of funding for marching band must be raised by the Parkview Band Booster Association. Student yearly band payments constitute 60% of our annual budget. Everything we do in Marching Band costs money and that money must come from somewhere. Paying your yearly band payments is the only reason we are able to have a large and successful band program. Click HERE to read the financial FAQ.
Do you have financial assistance available for Marching Band?
Yes and no. We do not have direct financial assistance available but we offer a variety of payment plans (see this link). In addition, we offer several fundraisers throughout the year where money will go directly back to you to help offset the cost of marching band.
When does the Marching Band Practice?
See the marching band information page.
When are Band Camps?
Band camps for some individuals start the middle of July. See Marching Band Information for information and dates for Band Camp.
Do you have to attend summer band camps to be in the PHS Marching Band?
Yes. Plan accordingly now.
When does the Marching Band Perform?
We perform at all Parkview High School football games at halftime and in the stands throughout the game. Typically, we also travel to two or three competitions and one or two exhibitions each year. Additional performances such as playing at a professional sports venue, etc… are scheduled on a year-by-year basis.
What role does colorguard play in the marching band?
Colorguard is a critical role in the marching band providing visual and artistic presence on the field. Cologuard members are full members of the marching band but they do not have to be enrolled in band class. Colorguard members attend the same practices and adhere to the same schedule as other band students.
