COLORGUARD for the 2020 Marching Season
2019-20 WINTERGUARD MEMBERS – Due to the shortened winterguard season this year, all winterguard members (excluding seniors of course) will be permitted to join the fall 2020 marching band without the need for a formal training/tryout process. Members must have a zero balance from their winter season before being added to the marching band roster. If you are wishing to participate, please be sure to email Mr. Reynolds directly to express your interest in returning for the fall marching season. You will need to make sure you and your parents have an account set up in CutTime.net . The marching band committment letter and medical form will also need to be completed, and deposit sent in.
NEW MEMBERS – We will gladly welcome new members for the Fall 2020 marching band season. More info will be posted soon.
COLORGUARD is the visual ensemble that performs in conjunction with the instrumental players of the marching band. A “corps style” field show is incomplete without this versatile unit. The guard members enhance the overall performance through the use of color, equipment, and physical movement. Colorguard is a totally extra-curricular group. Students are selected through an audition process during the spring semester. The colorguard is sponsored by Mr. Reynolds through the band program, but brings in additional instructors who specialize in guard work. These instructors are contracted through our booster association and are responsible for the choreography and instruction.
WINTERGUARD is an extra-curricular activity that takes all the characteristics from the colorguard, minus the marching band and football field! This group is selected through an audition process in late Fall and meets regularly outside of the school day. Rehearsals are typically Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, with Saturday practices as well. Our winterguard participates in the CWEA (Carolina Winter Ensemble Association) circuit. This is a highly competitive group, with competitions held on Saturdays throughout the season.
Congratulations to our Winterguard on their 3rd Place / Bronze Medal Finish in the Scholastic 3A Class
