Welcome to the Golden Pride Marching Band and Color Guard.
Congratulations on your plans to become a member of one of the top
marching units in San Diego. Over the years El Camino has earned a
reputation as a quality competitive band.
Known as the Golden Pride Marching Band & Color Guard, the ECHS
is a performance-oriented ensemble
that competes at field tournaments and performs at all home
football games. The Golden Pride includes performers in
the areas of brass, woodwinds, battery percussion, pit
percussion, and color guard. Rehearsals include the
learning of music, movement/marching skills, and ensemble
performance skills for the field. Attired in black and
white uniforms with gold trim, the Golden Pride presents a
striking and professional appearance.
The primary purpose of this course is to train the members of the
Marching Band in the areas of marching and maneuvering. The
development of leadership and teamwork will be stressed. Students
will participate and perform in scheduled marching band activities.
Students will also participate and perform in selected competitions
and activities outside the band program. Students help promote
spirit by participating in school based activities.
Rehearsal clothing: Proper attire for rehearsals
includes athletic shoes with a flexible sole (no boots,
high tops or sandal's/thongs), shorts, sweats, or loose
pants allowing for unrestricted movement, and an
appropriate top such as a band t-shirt or other t-shirt.
For band camp, students should bring their own bottled
water. They should also bring plenty of sun screen
as we will be marching and rehearsing outside a lot of
the time. Please check our
for event information. If you have any questions
If you are not sure about joining the marching band, you should come
to band camp and try it for a week. It's fun and an excellent
way to be part of school and part of a great group. Our
student leaders will make every effort to help you learn and enjoy
the band experience.
Our parent support group, The Golden Pride Booster Club has regular
meetings on the second Tuesday of each month in the band room from
7:00-9:00p.m. All parents are members and are invited to attend.
Plan to join the El Camino Golden Pride Marching Band and Color
Guard. It will be the experience of a lifetime.
