The marching TIGER band is the most visible group of the Fishers High School Band Program. This vibrant group of musicians practice beginning in the summer months and then on through October. During the summer, the band participates in local parades to prepare for the more intense drill work ahead. During the school year, the marching band participates in numerous Invitational competitions, which lead up to regional and state marching band competitions in late October and early November. The Fishers Marching Tigers has grown to include around 200+ students.
The marching band is comprised of both the band and a color guard, which provides much of the visual spectacle of the performance. During a performance, each band member goes through a series of movements, or drills, which have them traveling across the field performing 80 different form sets. It takes an incredible amount of teamwork to make these complicated drills happen seamlessly.
While marching band is an extra-curricular activity, students who participate in the Fishers High School Marching Band are required to also be in one of the Concert Bands, which meet as a class daily.
This is a great way to earn money for your marchers account. Check availability for specific dates directly with our liaison at email@example.com if you want to sign up to work. Volunteers must be 14 years or older. Adults will earn $12.00 per hour and Students will earn $10.00 per hour (with 10% going to the general fund). Conner Prairie accounting cuts checks twice a month. Make sure that you always sign in and out for your shift, so that our treasurer can credit your student account correctly! Boosters can volunteer with or without their student, but if your band student volunteers as well, they must be 14 years old.
There will be a volunteer sign in /sign out clip board. Please sign in and ensure your student’s name is listed also so that the correct account is credited.
Remember Volunteers need to be at least 14 years old in order to volunteer. There are sometimes positions that require a liquor license and 21 years of age, but most of the time that is not the case.

UNIFIED Boosters is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children to be able to participate in extra-curricular activities. We help parents or other interested individuals raise the funds needed for the children to participate in these activities. We do this by providing staffing for events (eg. concerts, sporting events). Who are these staffers? YOU ARE. The money you earn is TAX FREE. You can sign up to work as many or as few events as you like. This money that is earned can be used to reimburse you for the expenses incurred and associated with your child’s activity (i.e. uniforms, equipment costs, gasoline for travel, hotel and food bills for travel). https://www.unifiedboosters.
