The color guard is the primary visual component of the marching band. The color guard performs choreography using flags, rifles, sabers and dance in order to add color and movement to the field show. Students do not need any color guard or dance experience in order to participate. The color guard is responsible for all of the marching band performances and rehearsals during the fall semester. They also rehearse independently after school twice a week
The Winter Guard program, which begins in early December, exists so that guard members can continue to rehearse, perform and compete in the activity when marching band season has concluded. The group performs flag, rifle, saber and dance choreography on a standard basketball gym floor to recorded music. This group will participate in competitions, assembly performances and recruiting performances. There are also required out of school rehearsals. In order to letter in Color Guard, students must participate in Winter Guard.
