Video Auditions

Raiders are happy to offer video auditions for those who can’t attend in-person camps.

While in-person is always best, it’s not always possible. For those who live too far from our camp locations, video auditions may help!

If you can’t make it to any of our in-person camps, here’s how you can still start you DCI career with a Raiders video audition.

Discord + YouTube = 💪

Registration Packet

The next thing you’ll need to do is purchase your Registration Packet.

Packets cost $50 and are required for all auditionees and camp attendees.

Discord Server

Once you have a packet, you’ll need to join our Discord server.

Each section has a channel— tell the staff in your section’s channel that you’ll be submitting a video audition.

YouTube Link

Record your video and upload it to YouTube (set to Unlisted).

Send your YouTube link to your staff via email or Discord — that’s it!

Ready to get started?

Video auditions are due Jan 31.

Want more than video?

Video is great, but in-person is better. If you’d rather meet the Raiders staff IRL, come to one of our camps!

We designed our pre-season events to be as inclusive and accessible as possible for everyone.

Not sure if you’re ready for a drum corps season? No problem—the Clinic Track is perfect for you!

No audition required

Not ready for a full DCI season? — No problem.

Even if you’re not ready to try out for a DCI drum corps, we STILL want you to try our Clinic Camps!

You’ll learn from our DCI staff, and see how a drum corps operates at the highest levels — with no pressure to audition if you’re not ready.

DCI staff clinic

Come learn from the full #RaidersDBC staff of DCI veterans.

DCI drum corps is its own world. Come spend a few hours or a full day learning from our veteran staff.

Everyone on the #RaidersDBC teaching staff has earned their place thanks to their extensive experience.

Dinner & VIP t-shirt

Our Clinic Camps provide the full experience!

It’s more than breathing exercises, drop spins, and 8-on-a-hand. We want our students to feel proud of their time with #RaidersDBC — even if it’s just one afternoon.

All clinic attendees will receive (or can purchase) a #RaidersDBC t-shirt, and share a meal with staff and other attendees.

Rather come to camp?
