Once again, Katy ISD requires Physicals for all band students. A signed Physical Evaluation Form must be on file before your student is allowed to start marching with us at the end of July. At their audition on Saturday, your student should have received the paperwork which includes the physical form. See links below.

This summer, we are hosting the Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps from Concord, California. In conjunction with their stay, we are also hosting their System Blue Camp. This camp is optional, however we highly recommend students participate.
The 18-time World Champions Blue Devils are to marching band what the New England Patriots are to football. As JET Band heads into its summer marching band camp, the System Blue Camp is a great opportunity for students to work alongside and learn from the best of the best of the best.

Does your student want/need to be in better shape and have the physical skills and coordination necessary to be an excellent marcher? New this summer is an optional CrossFit camp to help our students get/stay in shape, get acclimated to the summer heat, and be physically ready to hit the pavement when summer band starts.
CrossFit Camp Details
- 8-week or 4-week camps available
- Location: CrossFit GonzStrong box (In CrossFit lingo that means the gym), or the band parking lot depending on turnout.
- Three days a week – Tues, Wed, and Thurs from 9:15-10am.
- Every class is taught by a certified CrossFit trainer.
We chose this schedule to leave summer weekends available for travel and vacations. Parents of students enrolled are welcome to join the classes for FREE. Several of our band students are already working out at the CrossFit box after school and there are a few band parents that are members. Brooke Gonzalez, the owner, is a former KISD teacher and coach. If you have any questions directly related to this summer camp, you may contact Brooke via the links on the Eventbrite page. Also please note the map on the Eventbrite page is incorrect; CrossFit Gonzstrong isn’t located north on Mason, it’s in the industrial park at I-10 & Westgreen behind Spring Creek BBQ.
