I'm pretty acient I guess.. I started playing percussion in 6th grade... still playing... hm thats been about 10-11 years I think... lol...
here's the break down..

6th-8th grade- percussion in concert band
9th-12th front ensemble/pit/front line (whatever you want to call it) mostly mallets... marched cymbals in parade to... fun fun...

after high school kinda stopped the whole marching scene and concentrated on concert... so yea.. there you have it...
