OBA State Champions!
Congratulations to the 2022 OBA State Marching Band Champions, the Pride of Broken Arrow!! The Pride competed in the OBA Championships this past weekend and earned awards including Outstanding Music Performance, Outstanding Visual Performance, and Outstanding General Effect in the preliminary contest and swept all awards in the finals competition including Outstanding Musical Performance, Outstanding Visual Performance and Outstanding General Effect. This marks the 29th OBA State Championship for the Pride and their 20th CONSECUTIVE TITLE. What an amazing accomplishment for these outstanding student performers, staff and parent volunteers! If you joined us at the event, you can attest to the terrific performances that the Pride Members delivered in the event and the Finals Performance was OUTRAGEOUS… a performance to remember for a VERY long time! GO BA PRIDE!

Reach out to any of our Booster Club officers, ask questions and find a place to get involved. We need additional volunteers in almost every area: Volunteering in the concession stands at games, Uniforms, Pride Store, Marketing, Graphic Design, Operations, etc, etc…

Pride Send Off Dress Rehearsal for Grand Nationals
The Pride Send Off Dress Rehearsal will be on Tuesday, November 8th. This will be an excellent opportunity to see the Pride’s show “Over the Edge" before they depart for the BOA Grand National Championship in Indianapolis, IN. The Pride will, once again, sponsor this event as a benefit to BA Neighbors. Admission fee for the event is a canned food or non-perishable food item. This is an excellent opportunity to give back to our Broken Arrow community. The gates will open at 7:45 and access to the Grandstand seating will open at 8:00pm. The program will begin at approximately 8:15pm. Invite your friends!
