Best Adjudicators

USBands utilizes an esteemed group of 300 + adjudicators from all over the country. Our adjudicators go through a rigorous screening and training process and participate in continuing education programs to refine their craft. They provide valuable feedback to all participating ensembles using adjudication as an educational tool including e-Adjudicate to help your program reach its fullest potential.

Best Service

USBands provides training and support to all participating ensembles, members and non-members. Detailed information packets are provided to every Director prior to participation in order to ensure you have a seamless and successful season.
