In the past, that has never been a problem. The schedule has usually worked out that marching contest waathe week before district games began. Thid year marching contest is in November at the end of the regular season.
The coach absolutely will not let any players march at halftime during district games. I tried to compromise with him and only asked for players who get very little playimg time or no playing time at all. The coach still said no. We are a team with no jv. So everyone suits up for varisty with a bunch of players just standing on the sideline in uniform all night and never getting into the game.
Without the football players, we cannot perform.our contest show at halftime. It removes both of my snare drummers, my only tuba and 3 trumpet players.
Is this worth going up the chsin of command or should I just leave it alone?
