2017 New Jersey State Championship Announcement

The USBands New Jersey State Championships will once again assume a two day format, with Groups IV-A through VI-A and all Open Class bands performing on Saturday, October 28. Held at Rutgers University, the HighPoint Solutions Stadium is infamous for the hill from the warm-up area to the entrance gate. Last year, a total of 58 bands competed in the pouring rain.

Day two of the New Jersey State Championships will be held at Richard Wackar Stadium at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ. This is the second year that groups I-A through III-A will perform at this particular venue. Last year, the competition saw 40 band programs for a day full of fierce competition. 

"The USBands team is thrilled to be returning to both HighPoint Solutions Stadium and Richard Wackar Stadium for the New Jersey state Championship competitions in 2017, and we can't wait to see all of the New Jersey bands in attendance!" said USBands Director, Steve Petzinger. 

Registration for both days opens this Saturday, March 4th at 9am EST. Our National Sign-Up Day Powered by CCIS Travel is the first chance for bands to sign up for their favorite events.
