Pep Bands. The UIL does allow “Pep” bands (max of 20 band members) to play at basketball games during
pregame, time-outs, intermission and post-game. Musical instruments may not be used as noisemakers during the
contest. The “Pep” band shall not be located behind or near the opposition’s bench.
If a “Pep” band does perform the following guidelines should be followed to ensure a full appreciation of the
group’s performance. Band directors are reminded that as a courtesy to the teams and cheerleaders of both schools,
performances by the band should be limited to appropriate times.
Guidelines listed below indicate appropriate playing times for the band:
• The band may play before the game begins. The director should coordinate the schedule so that the host school
may introduce team members.
• The band may play during time outs and halftime of the contest.
• The band may play at the end of the contest if desired.
