Villanova Men’s Basketball games are voluntary band functions. Currently, 50 tickets are allotted to the band as an organization. Therefore, these tickets are a privilege and should be treated as such.
Whereas, the size of the band at men’s basketball games is limited to 50, the following procedures will be utilized when more than 50 students sign up for a given game.
A signup list will be posted at VUBand.com 10 days prior to a game. Everyone with attendance of 70% or above wishing to attend that gig, including pep band conductors and band managers, should sign up.
The list will remain posted until noon 5 days prior to a game.
This procedure will be utilized for regular season games excluding NCAA’s and the Big East Tournament:
If less than 50 have signed up for that game, the list will remain posted until 50 names are attained, at which time the list will be closed.
If more than 50 band members have signed up, the board will make cuts according to the procedures outlined herein.
A list of 50 students and alternates will be selected from those eligible students.
Seniority will not be considered for regular season games except for the University determined Senior Night Game.. This policy shall be in effect until further notice. It is the board’s responsibility to review and revise this document as it sees fit.
Once the gate list is sent to the band members, any individuals who wish to remove their name must immediately notify the Secretary. Anyone chosen to attend a game that is absent from the game will automatically be cut from the next game he or she signs up for that requires cuts. Exemption from this penalty is possible for extreme circumstances and will be determined by the Directors.
From the sign up list, 29 students will be selected according to the following instrumentation:
Villanova Women’s Basketball Games: To be considered for any post season basketball events, all members must attend a minimum of 4 Women’s Basketball games. All Women’s games attended will count as additional attendance points toward regular attendance (“1 out of 1”.) Any night, in which rehearsal and a Women’s Basketball game coincide, rehearsal is mandatory unless you are attending the basketball game. This does not matter if rehearsal is cancelled.
