Toiling on the sidelines of every Bellbrook Marching Eagles band competition and home football game are the Pit Dads. Pit Dads are a team of parent volunteers that help band students load and unload band instruments, build show props, maintain band equipment, build carts and stands, drive trucks and pull trailers, set up the electronics, help with getting the pit instruments and show props on and off the field for competition, mow and stripe the band practice field, and most importantly, get a chance to work with a great bunch of kids.
Becoming a Pit Dad is a very rewarding experience. Working with this great bunch of kids every year from when they stumble around in July at band camp to the end of the season when they take the field at Grand Nationals is an experience you will not regret. The hugs and tears of joy as you enter the tunnels with the kids after that flawless finals performance are truly unforgettable. Not to mention the many lasting friendships you will acquire. All Activities are coordinated by the “Pit Boss” and you can get involved as little or as much as you like.
