Drum corps can sound like any other club to the uninitiated, but dig a little deeper and you'll see it's an intense sport filled with long hours & hard work. It's about pushing the limits of what your mind and body can do, and the place where you'll meet your lifelong friends. 

Here are 15 GIFs that will make any drum corps member say, "Yep, that's me!" to celebrate new episodes of Clash of the Corps, every Wednesday at 11:00/10:00c.
