Tournament of Bands and Tournament Indoor Association provide a competitive arena for marching bands, indoor color guards, twirlers, percussion and dance teams, as well as jazz bands, choral groups and other related units.
TOB/TIA contests are held annually in 9 states throughout the Mid-Atlantic region where 13 regions are created geographically for local contests. North Central PA/Southern NY is designated as Susquehanna Valley Region 4.
During September and October, marching bands will have the opportunity to perform in contests throughout the regions. The number of musicians is used to determine the group size. Bands can elect to compete in the Open Class (traditional TOB scoring), A Class (new bands/staffs) or Festival Class (ratings only).
Indoor color guards, twirlers, dance teams and percussion ensembles perform from January through early May. Guidelines and classifications for these units can be viewed at www.njatob.org.
An annual membership fee of $100 entitles ALL of your school or organization units to participate without additional costs for the year. A one-time performance bond fee is allocated to each unit.
If you have any questions or are interested in obtaining more information about joining TOB/TIA, please email the Region 4 coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
