The Blue Star Regiment is a modern, corps-style marching band. The BSR is a precision-based ensemble which performs cutting edge, contemporary marching band shows. Standards and expectations for this group are high, however the pride and excitement gained from participation is unmatched in the band program. The group performs at all home football games, as well as competitions throughout the West. All students in the Blue Star Regiment are required to enroll in one of the concert ensembles in order to participate. The BSR meets throughout the summer as well as after school rehearsals during the season.
