Event Registration

2017 Event Registration is scheduled to begin on

Monday, May 15 at 12:00 PM PDT.




If you currently have a “Director’s Only” username and password and are the primary contact with a returning band, login into the Director's Only website to access event registration under "Enter Events" on the right side of the dashboard.


If your band has not competed with WBA in the past year and currently do not have a username and password, you must contact the WBA office at office@westernbands.org to obtain these credentials . Please allow up to three (3) full business days to process the new member registration and receive your director's only username and password. This will be sent to you via the email address you submitted.  To enter events you need this information first and then can follow the directions above. 


If you have any questions on obtaining your Director’s Only username and password, please email office@westernbands.org for assistance.  Again, you must have your band registered with WBA before you can access the entry form for 2017.


  • All contests will utilize WBA Rules and Score Sheets as defined in the 2017 WBA Adjudication Manual and Rule Book. This document will be made available after the annual meeting on June 23.
  • All deadlines for contest entries will be strictly enforced. In order to be fair to all participating bands, there can 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 (exception to this provision are those bands participating in the Las Vegas Super Show only).  The membership fee of $150 will be included along with your first entry registration.  All subsequent entry registrations will show that membership has already been purchased.
  • Entries into 2017 WBA Events will begin on May 15, 2017 at 12:00 PM PDT via the WBA website.  This will be the first day available to use website entry system.
  • Members will have the first available postmark for entry forms of May 15, 2017.  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.  Entry to the Long Beach Super Show is $350 (Las Vegas Super Show entry is free to all bands courtesy of Yamaha).  Any entries after September 1 will have an additional $50 late fee assessed.
  • Entry fee per band for any class in the WBA Championships is $450 until September 1.  Entries postmarked after that date are $500. 
  • Each band will receive immediate email confirmation of their entry followed by a separate invoice for their entry fees.
  • Payment for entries can be made by three methods:  credit card, check, or PayPal.
  • Payment will be due September 1, 2017 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, 2017. 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 small fee. Certain restrictions apply; please contact the WBA office for assistance by calling 925-938-8917.
