Color Guard

Varsity Winter Guard/Fall Color Guard

Color Guard are members of the program who participate in music by adding visual impact and color to a musical performance or composition through challenging equipment work, dancing and marching.


These students will learn and perform a show that is custom written just for the members of the group. The color guard participates with the marching band during the summer; and functions as a singular unit during the winter (extracurricular), where they perform at Indiana High School Color Guard Association (IHSCGA) competitions and related events.


Participation in winter guard costs extra (fundraising is required) and requires significant work outside of school. All members of the Color Guard must register for the Dance Performance class during the school year. Those students who do not continue into Winter Guard will drop the 2nd semester class.
