TIGER BAND KIDZ KLUB

Tiger Band opens its doors to area youth (and their parents) with the Tiger Band Kidz Klub. Kids are invited to the Tiger Band practice field at the corner of Perimeter Road and Cherry Road for Friday rehearsals before home games. There, the "klub" will get a behind-the-scenes look at Tiger Band, learning how they "Shake the Southland." Participants get a chance to meet Tiger Band members, see demonstrations of the instruments, and participate in a band activity: "running down the hill."

Faithful members receive a gift from the band. Participants can watch the band rehearse before beginning brief demonstrations for the kids. The band especially encourages faculty and staff with children to participate.

All children participating must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
