How much time does the Spirit Band take?

  1. BulletWe rehearse on Monday evenings from 6:00-6:50pm in the Fall and 5:30-6:30pm in the spring. These rehearsals will begin in November and will go through February (during school). Games per week vary - usually around 1.5 games per week. We meet at Gallagher-Iba 45 minutes before each game.  Full band will perform at all Men’s games and the band will split into A and B band for Women’s games and Wrestling.

What are the "perks" for being in the Band?

  1. BulletSince we meet only 45 minutes before tip-off, you save all that time you would spend waiting for the gates to open to get a seat - AND your seats are reserved.

  2. BulletTravel with the team to Big XII and NCAA tournaments (maximum 30 people - determined by seniority, part, and ability).

  3. BulletLeading the spirit in Gallagher-Iba Arena!

If I have a conflict, is it possible to miss a game?

  1. BulletConflicts do occur during the basketball season. Valid conflicts MUST be approved by Mr. Bovenschen in advance. Subs can be utilized occasionally when you have valid conflicts.  Gigs during the break are not required but your attendance is very helpful if you are in town (to assist the OSU Alumni Spirit Band)!
