Color Guard / Winter Guard

What is Color Guard?

Color Guard is a performance activity that involves dancing and spinning flags, rifles, and sabres. During the fall season, color guard performs with the marching band at football games, pep rallies, and local/national competitions. During the winter/spring seasons, color guard performs as the “Winter Guard” separate from the band at competitions both local and nationally.

Great! We will teach you everything you need to know to be successful at the try-out! Most color guard members show up to the audition completely new, and we have a great staff that can teach anyone how to do it.


Why should I join?

Color guard is a lot of fun, and the TCHS guard is nationally recognized and has won numerous awards from both regional and local events! You get to travel a lot, make new friends, and learn new skills performing, dancing, and spinning equipment. *Color guard also takes care of both your fine arts and PE credit requirement if you enroll in the class!!*
