All Preseason meals are provided for all members beginning with dinner their first day through breakfast on Friday. Most meals will be in a designated dining hall; members are admitted with the Conference Card issued to them at Check-In. Two nights during the week members will receive $10 per diem with which they are free to explore food establishments in Storrs Center or around the university. Beginning with lunch on Friday, the regular meal plans begin and those with a meal plan will use their Husky-One Card (ID) the Conference Card is no longer valid. After that time members without meal plans must make their own plans for meals.
Individual rehearsal blocks vary. Each block will either be a music or a movement rehearsal with sectional time built in.
During the entire season water will be available to all members during all rehearsals and games both on the field and in the stands.
