Enrollment at Tuscaloosa County High School is required of all students in the Tuscaloosa County High School Band program. This includes all members of the Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Band (some exceptions for the jazz band may apply for instrumentation needs pertaining to the rhythm section). The band program is very much a team/group where the participation of a single individual directly affects all other members. Therefore, all members must assume their responsibility to the organization and fully participate in as many activities as may be required of them. A student may be excused from participation in the marching band if they are involved in another school-related activity that directly conflicts with rehearsals and/or performances on a regular basis (Football, cheerleading, and girls’ volleyball).
