Spirit Wear Top 7 List

Posted on Aug 16, 2018


7. T-shirts, tanks and shorts…because September can still be hot and you need to keep cool while looking cool!

6. Jackets, hoodies and sweats…because we are in Wisconsin and one week after you’re sweating, you’ll probably be shivering.

5. Blankets and headbands…because by holiday parade time, you’ll definitely be shivering.

4. Stadium chairs…because whether the bleachers are too hot or too cold, you’ll feel just right sitting in one.

3. Duffels and cinch bags…because they’re perfect for carrying necessities to marching band competitions (or anywhere for that matter!)

2. There are two logos to choose from (Cadets or Waukesha West Bands)…because these aren’t just for marching band families!

1. There’s only one week to order if you want to get your items by September 7th, so click on this link and get in the spirit today!
