Arizona Diamondbacks/STCS National Anthem Night

The D-Backs, along with San Tan Charter School, invite you to bring your family and friends to the game on Monday, September 12th vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers. The San Tan Charter students will perform the National Anthem on the field prior to the game! All students are welcome to participate in the singing of the National Anthem.

Tickets are specifically discounted and a portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit the San Tan Charter Choir. Tickets can be purchased through Formstack. Keep an eye out for an accompanying Information Sheet that will provide details for this event.

We look forward to seeing you there!



  • Students must have a ticket to the game in order to participate in the National Anthem.
  • Parents are responsible for providing transportation to and from the event.
  • Once the students exit the field, parents are liable for claiming them and supervising them during the game (Details on where to pick up students will be shared at a later date).


Guidelines for Chase Field:

  • Anyone on field is expected to show proper respect before, during and after the National Anthem performance. It is very important that everyone stands up straight and does not wave at the cameras.
  • All participants must stay on the warning track and off the grass at all times during the performance.
  • Outside of the performers, only teachers and chaperones should be on the field. Parents should not go on the field with their children.
  • Food, drinks, bags and purses will not be allowed onto the field. Performers should leave all bags and purses with their parents/guardians during the performance.
  • With the large number of performers, students should not be talking during the rehearsal or on the field, prior to the performance.

Purchase Tickets and Sign Up HERE

By filling out the Formstack, I agree that I have read, understand and will adhere to the guidelines and expectations for my student to participate in a performance of the National Anthem on Monday, September 12, 2022. I understand that this is an AT WILL activity and that I will be responsible for my student at all times once they leave the field.
