Welcome to the beginning of a once in a lifetime experience. The Troopers are on the rise, and this is the year for you.

Here is how it works:

  1. Purchase the $95 audition ticket below. Be aware that we have a no refund policy.

  2. Check your email for the confirmation, link, and password to get access to the audition portal. (The email may go to spam, so make sure you check there as well. If you do not receive an email contact Mike Gough at

  3. Proceed to the audition portal, download the audition packet, create your video audition, and submit. Please have your video in by December 1st so that we have enough time to review it prior to camp.

  4. The Troopers staff will review your video and provide feedback. If you make it through the preliminary screening, you will be sent an invite to attend our upcoming live camp in December.

  5. If you receive a contract, you will be expected to attend all monthly winter weekend camps (January - April).

Q & A

Q: Are there any exemptions to this process?

A: Returning members should consult with their caption head prior to purchasing an audition ticket.

Q: Will the December camp be held in Mesquite, TX like it was prior to COVID-19?

A: No, it will not. Since the Pandemic, it has become more difficult to secure housing for drum corps. We are currently finalizing plans for in person camp locations, but all potential members and candidates should be prepared to travel to the in person camps. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Q: I am not seeing the ticket purchase window below. What should I do?

*Please note: Tuition prices will be returning to standard levels to accommodate for a full season and will be adjusted for inflation. Thank you for your patience as we work to identify those costs.
