The preseason.

2021 rehearsals will be held virtually. For more information, email rich@colts.org.

Day rehearsals generally begin on Sundays at 1:00 PM, with unloading and check in at 12:30 PM, and conclude by 5:00 PM. Weekend rehearsal camps are scheduled once a month in March, April, and May. Rehearsal weekends generally begin at 8:00 PM Friday, with unloading and check in at 7:00 PM, and conclude by 3:00 PM on Sunday. Information about weekend rehearsals, including location details, will be posted on the website prior to the weekend.

Attendance at all rehearsals is encouraged, but not expected, of interested students. We are flexible and will work with your schedule! If you are unable to attend a rehearsal, but are still interested in Colt Cadets, be sure to communicate with Rich Waddington, Colt Cadets Director, at rich@colts.org. We will work with you to make membership in 2021 a reality!

Sunday afternoon rehearsals are free to attend for all students. Weekend camps are $40 per student to help cover the cost of meals and housing.

Please Note: this schedule is tentative, pending availability with the Dubuque schools and will be updated as information becomes available. Always check colts.org for the most up to date information on rehearsal sites.
