If you've ever seen a Marching Band and followed the members spinning Flags, Rifles, Sabres, Props, and performing Choreography, you've been following the Color Guard unit of the Marching Band. Now, imagine that unit performing by themselves, indoors on a basketball court, to recorded music. And oh yeah, its even more spinning and choreography and spinning and choreography. That's Winter Guard.
If you want to see videos of Winter Guards, go to our "Links" page and go to Winter Guard International. There are many Guard videos online in various places as well.

Everyone is welcome to participate in Winter Guard initially.
