I understand why people want to do this till 25. It won't work. Do senior corps, although I've seen some 16 year olds in those too. Remember corps is like any other addiction, the main difference is usually you are not arrested for driving under the influence of drum corps, and as a rule they don't give you cancer or cause birth defects.....................Bill


I agree, if you love drum corps and you want to continue past the age-out limit, then join "all age corps." :wink:

Sometimes they remind me of a Nostradamus Quatrain but I don't know why.

If I not mistaken, when you march your age-out year, you can turn 22 during the marching season.
Before that, if you turned 22 ANY TIME during the season, you weren't allowed to march at all.
Hope this makes sense.

OK here I go again.

I don't believe that anyone mentioned that back in the day many people marched from 6 to 21. They went from Class C to B to A or Division I. There were so many more corps and sponsors and you could barely keep up with the shows every week all summer.


Some people don't even try out until 17 or 18, and they may not make it the first time or there are too many people trying out. Back then by 16 people were burnt out in some cases.

For selfish reasons if I could go back, I would have marched 1981, gone with Zingali 82 & aged out in 83 at 24. Too old I think! Although in my case I wouldn't have missed much, I had been working full time since 16 and work knew the corps was the most important thing to me.

So, after all that, I think it's a bad idea although we had 11 to 21 year olds some years and 13 to 21 others. Some people that were 16 were dating 20 year olds and are now married, however I was quite naive as to what was going on even at 21. We didn't have male/females buses, only sections on the way to maybe prelims and finals....

Yep, nowadays, a bad idea, even back then, nope!

I get a long rant after not being on here that much... :oops: :nenr: :crazy:

I would have love to march until I was 25 but I dont think it would be fair to our youngester a opportunity if corps would let there members march until 25 yrs old.

My feeling is it would make things much more competitive for one. The other issue would be working out what corps have the more senior members etc. Just like in Babe Ruth Baseball you can only have a certain number of 13,14 and 15 Y/O players. So this same restriction would certainly have to apply to Drum Corps as well. I'm opposed to the idea, maybe more out of fear of change.. I like it the way it is now. It just seems that 16 Y/O kids with 25 y/o adults is pushing it.
