Just trying to see if it is worth asking the senators office. Would band be considered and athletic sport? My son has been in the marching band for 4 years and really can't compete in anything else. At his school band is a sport. They compete all over north texas and practice up to two hours a day during school and up to 6 weeks prior to school. It is a major comittment. They also compete in over 6 UIL Band competitions. So I just want to know your thoughts on this form of a sport. Thanks!
