Rampage & Middle School Tour

The Rampage Tournament is this weekend, Saturday October 29th at 2:00pm at the College of the Canyon’s Cougar Stadium in Santa Clarita. Tickets are $10, students & seniors $8 and children 5 and under free. Hope you can join us to cheer on our award-winning Band & Dance Team!

Students should plan on bringing money for food. It will be a long day so have money for both lunch and dinner. Don’t forget to eat before your call time. I also recommend bringing water, snacks, warm clothes, and possibly even a blanket.

Our first performance will be at 8:15 am at Walter Reed, followed by an 10:30 & 11:15 am performance at Millikan Middle School.
