Tournament

TOURNAMENT contests are held year round throughout a nine-state area in the mid-Atlantic region.  Throughout the year, you will find Tournament-sponsored events for marching band, indoor performances, parades, jazz contests, and numerous other scholastic, independent, community and organization competitions.  

Tournament of Bands (TOB) provides a competitive arena for marching bands.  Hundreds of bands compete in field shows from September through November.  The TOB All-Star Marching Band represents the association annually in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Tournament Indoor Association (TIA) provides contests for indoor performing ensembles including percussion, dance, color guard and twirling.  Jazz band and concert bands also participate during TIA season (January through May).

National Judges Association provides adjudicators for all Tournament-sponsored events.
