Re: Drill is so behind
I get the feeling that everybody is going through similar things this season. We started out pretty strong. The second week of school, we started up with COVID cases again. I've had about 10% of the band kids out at any given time on quarantine for the last three weeks of school. I feel about 1-2 weeks behind on teaching drill as well. We are having to do lots of reteaching for kids who are coming back from quarantine, and it's tough to have good rehearsals with so many constant holes on the field from COVID, normal illness, doctors appointments, benchmark testing, etc. My goals for the season are definitely having to shift. I am not looking for any kind of specific result at contests any more. My goal is to teach the kids who are in front of me, one day at a time, and try to give them the best show we can manage this fall that they can feel proud of performing.
