Eden Prairie High School has a tradition of athletic excellence. Teams typically proceed quite far into post-season tournament competition, providing us an outstanding opportunity to promote our school and its programs to the community at large. As such, it is important that the Eden Prairie High School Pep Band is prepared to deliver a quality product at all football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and hockey games from the section finals through the state tournament.
All members of the Eden Prairie High School band program will be required to attend a minimum of two pep band appearances per term during terms one and three of the academic year (for a total of four appearances), provided that the teams advance into the playoffs (section finals and beyond). This will ensure that each student in the band program experiences pep band at the tournament level. It also increases the likelihood of full instrumentation and quality performance for each appearance.
EPHS band students in grades 9 – 12 will be divided into three equal pep bands (A, B,and C).
Pep Bands will be assigned to all football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and hockey games beginning with the section finals and continuing throughout state tournament play, as long as the team continues to participate in the winners’ bracket.
Pep Bands A, B, and C will maintain a consistent rotation to provide equal opportunity and responsibility for each group.
The Pep Band uniform consists of a BLACK sweatshirt. A black EPHS Band sweatshirt is highly recommended and is available for purchase.
