Winter Guard

Winter Guard

Winter Guard season starts after the marching and color guard season ends. In winter guard, we perform and compete to one song against other school’s winter guards. There is no band involved. This is where we push for better technique and try more challenging things. Winter Guard is performed indoors on a special mat using flags, rifles, sabres and props.


All beginners start on the flag line. This includes learning flag basics from drop spins to tosses. The flags are the basis of our shows and add color to everything we do.


Rifle is a piece of wood shaped like a rifle that is spun. This is the introductory piece of the weapon line.


Sabre is a more advanced piece of weaponry. It is a metal blade with a cage at the end. It is spun with gloves to avoid injury.
