  • All contests will utilize WBA Rules and Score Sheets as defined in the 2016 WBA Adjudication Manual and Rule Book. All members can access the rule here.
  • All deadlines for contest entries will be strictly enforced. In order to be fair to all participating bands, there will be no exceptions.
  • A band having outstanding balances to WBA will not be allowed to enter any contest until the debt has been satisfied.
  • WBA Membership is required for all marching bands in order to participate in any event.  The membership fee of $150 will be included in your first entry registration.  All subsequent entry registrations will show that membership has already been purchased.
  • Entries into 2016 WBA Events will begin on May 14, 2016 via the WBA website.  This will be the first day available to use website entry system, NOT first postmark date.
  • Members will have the first available postmark for entry forms of May 16, 2016.  Postmark will determine performance order.  Bands with the earliest postmark date will perform last in their class of competition.  Bands with the same postmark date will be randomly drawn within their postmark date to determine performance order.
  • Each band is financially responsible for all entry fees and fees associated with entries. Entry fee per band for any class in a regular contest is $250 until September 1.  Entries postmarked after that date are $300.  Entry fee per band for any class in the WBA Championships is $400 until September 1.  Entries postmarked after that date are $500. 
  • Payment for entries can be made by three methods:  credit card, check and PayPal.  Payment does not need to be submitted at the time of entry unless using credit or PayPal. 
  • Payment will be due September 1, 2016 in order to keep your original postmark.  Those bands failing to remit payment by the due date will have their entries voided.  Band will lose their original postmark date and must begin the entry process all over again with new postmark date.
  • Entry fees are refundable until September 1, 2016. After that date, entry fees are non-refundable.
  • If you sign up for an event and cannot attend, then you have the option of transferring to a different regional event for a fee. Certain restrictions apply; please contact the WBA office for assistance by calling 925-938-8917.
