Members of the color guard will not only be taught all of the physical skills of color guard, they will also learn valuable lessons that they can take with them for the rest of their lives. Some of these lessons include: self-esteem, discipline, team building, responsibility, hard work, self-confidence, and having fun by applying these things for the common goal of being “GREAT” at something!!!

Color Guard is a year long activity. It is broken down into 2 seasons:

East marching band guard 2017.

Marching Band Season

Columbus East color guard is a performance group that accompanies the marching band during the competitive band season by being the “visual music”. We spin flags, rifles, sabers, and dance to interpret the music and drill formations on the football field during competitions and half time at football games. Members must sign up for the "Brigade" class when registering for classes.

Registration into the Brigade class is mandatory.

Winter Guard Season

The second half of the school year we participate in an activity called “Winter Guard” which takes all the skills we begin to learn over the fall and takes it to the next level. Winter Guard is for the color guard only and doesn’t involve the band, which makes it twice as fun for the girls to shine in their own spotlight. The winter guard season is the pinnacle of our year giving the girls the opportunity to compete on a global level as opposed to just the national level during band season. We perform indoors to recorded music. Members must sign up for the "Winter Guard" class when registering for classes.

If you are not a member of the Fall Guard, then you can not participate in Winter Guard. However, being in Fall Guard doesn't mean you have to be in Winter Guard. Some exceptions may be made at the staff/directors discretion, but only during rare circumstances.

Registration in the Winter Guard Class is mandatory.
