In compliance with University Athletics and Facilities, it is of extreme importance that all Band Day participants adhere to the following Guest Policies:
- All non-LHAB family members must have a ticket in order to attend the game. (Children under the age of 2 are exempt.)
- Non-LHAB guests/family members will NOT be able to march into the stadium with the band. They must enter through the ticket gate with a valid ticket.
- LHAB will NOT be responsible for escorting any guests/children into the stadium during march down.
- All children of LHAB members must be accompanied by a non-marching adult while in the stadium and at the indoor practice facility (The Bubble). Athletics requests that we monitor guests in order to ensure that equipment and facilities are maintained.
Thank you for you compliance and Hook ’em!
