Drum Corps International requires any drum line group performing to pay a $100.00 non-refundable deposit. Once your application and deposit is received, Team DCI will contact you to work through any preliminary questions and then will approve your organization to continue on to the registration process.
DCI will be able to offer you a Participation Agreement for specific events in which you have been approved to participate, issue your final performer release forms and a final invoice for fees and packages. You will follow up with DCI with Participation Agreement, releases for all participants and any invoice balance so that DCI can lock you into event schedules of approved events.
