Tournament of Bands runs marching band festivals in the fall season with different levels of adjudication based on the needs of each band. The TOB season culminates with regional championships, followed by all-region Atlantic Coast Championships featuring the top bands from all 11 Regions.
Tournament Indoor Association (TIA) runs indoor shows with indoor color guards, marching, standstill, and concert percussion ensembles, twirlers, and dance teams, as well as adjudication festivals for jazz bands. The TIA Season ends with region championships followed by All-Region Championships, the “Weekend in Wildwood,” featuring over 200 performing units from around the 11 regions.
Tournament’s motto is “performance excellence through positive reinforcement.” All competitive and non-competitive adjudications are with the education of the student in mind.
The best part about involvement with TOB and TIA – it is run for the students, by it’s members, and the membership fee is very reasonable (a nominal dues per year and no per-show charge!) Please contact the region coordinator for more information on joining the Tournament of Bands.
