Best Adjudicators

USBands utilizes an esteemed group of 300 + adjudicators from all over the country. Our adjudicators go through a rigorous screening and training process and participate in continuing education programs to refine their craft. They provide valuable feedback to all participating ensembles using adjudication as an educational tool including e-Adjudicate to help your program reach its fullest potential.


Best Venues

Whether they are marching at MetLife Stadium or performing live from the Kimmel Center, we strive to provide opportunities at the finest venues to ensure a memorable experience for every participant.


Best Service

USBands provides training and support to all participating ensembles, members and non-members. Detailed information packets are provided to every Director prior to participation in order to ensure you have a seamless and successful season.
