2022-2023 Spring Trimester Registration Form
The link above is to a fillable PDF form. You may type in the information on the computer (much preferred for clarity), and then print it and sign where necessary. Less desirable is to print it out and fill it in by hand. Either way, mail it to the director or return it at band. DO NOT scan it and/or email it to the director. Deadline December 1.

                        Submit any rental form(s) and fee(s) along with your registration.

Once the registration form is posted you can complete most of the information. However, you need to wait for Booster jobs to be posted on November 21 at 7pm to complete that section of the form.
