Marching Registration Deadline

Reminder: Registration for the 2016 SCBDA Marching Band Championships are due next Friday, August 12, 2016! Your registration must be submitted online and postmarked by 8/12/2016.
With updates to our association’s website this summer, you are strongly encouraged to not wait until the last minute to access your account and submit your registration. New directors will need to first register with SC Bandlink for login credentials.

As a friendly reminder, directors who had an active login on SC Bandlink last year already have an account on the new website; however, your login credentials are slightly different. Your username is your primary e-mail address (from your account) and your password is your NAfME number (without leading zeros).

If you have an issue logging into the website after following the instructions above, please contact Ryan Tinker.


To access the online registration form:

  1. Login to SC Bandlink
  2. Click on Director’s Area
  3. Click on Online Registration
  4. Click on Marching Band Festival/Championships
  5. Fill out all necessary and required information on the form and click submit when complete.

Note: If you would like to save your in-progress form but not yet submit your registration, click Save and Continue Later, and follow the on-screen prompts for further instructions.

After you click submit, you will receive two (2) e-mails from the Marching Division with the form to print and mail.

  • SCBDA Marching Band Festival/Championship Entry Form
  • SCBDA Copyright Permission/Music Information Form

Please print these two e-mails, obtain necessary signatures, enclose your registration payment, copy of current NAfME ID card, and performer roster and mail to Chaz Paxton – Marching Division Chairman.
