Color Guard

Story image 1_0

Color Guard is a hard working group of students that form a non-musical section that provides additional visual aspects to the performance. The marching band and color guard performance generally takes place on a football field. The color guard performs alongside the marching band at football games and parades. The purpose of the color guard is to interpret the music that the marching band or drum and bugle corps is playing via the synchronized work of flags and through dance.They use various equipment, including flags, rifles, and sabres, along with dance, to enhance the music of the marching band show.


Throughout all my years in color guard I've met so many amazing people, I didn't only make new friends I made a family that I know I can depend on and I fell in love with the sport, and this team will be an experience I will carry on with me from the rest of my life.
