The Racine Scouts are currently looking for members to fill out our 2017 Ensemble. We are looking for Brass players, Percussionist, Dancers and conductors. While we are looking to produce a challenging field show, we do accept woodwind players looking to learn a brass instrument as a secondary instrument. We are currently looking for woodwind soloists and vocalists to feature in our 2017 production.

There are Five basic Membership Requirements:

1.   DESIRE - The courage to become a true ambassador of music pageantry

2.   ATTITUDE - In general, membership with the Racine Scouts is awarded to individuals who share our values and who display a   willingness to work hard to achieve our mutual goals. A positive attitude is more important to us than "just" talent. 

3.   Health - Daily rehearsals, performances and travel make drum corps even more intense and demanding than many collegiate level sports. Your body must be capable of holding up under tremendously stressful physical conditions.

4.   TIME - Our Program has been established to supplement the music education experience our members receive(d) in high school and college. It is important however that Racine Scouts members fully understand the commitment they are making to our organization in light of other obligations they may already have. Communication in this area is the key to your success. In order to be considered for membership, you must be able to plan your personal and work schedule(s) so that you can participate in ALL corps functions November thru August (this includes employment, drivers training, summer school and all other non academic activities). Specific allowances for absence for off season rehearsals can be made if you phone or e-mail at least two weeks before any function. The summer season begin in early June and the season culminates in mid-July with an appearance at MACBDA Championships. 

5.   FINANCES – Finances are a major concern for all drum corps.  Drum and bugle corps are non-profit organizations and most groups run on rather expensive annual budgets. Racine Scouts generates income through corps fundraisers, performance fees, membership dues, and donations.  Fees for the 2017 season are set at $1,200.00 per marching member. Roughly 240 for each week of tour.

 Membership recruitment is an on going process, fall being the best time to join to get a full rehearsal season but members are accepted all year long.
