The pep band is an optional extra-curricular auditioned group. In November, students who are interested in pep band meet before and after school for scheduled rehearsals. Attendance to these rehearsals is a vital component to the selection process. Selected students are required to attend all assigned home basketball games.

Pep Band at Southeast Polk is a fun and exciting group made up of any band student in grades 9-12 who is dedicated and committed to having a good time playing quality, peppy music during basketball games. The pep band practices several times before basketball season starts, and performs at 8 or 9 varsity double-headers each winter. Some have dubbed the pep band at Southeast Polk the “Best Pep Band in the Land.” Most folks attending home basketball games would tend to agree!
