The Color Guard is open to all members of the CCHS student body interested in the art of performing with this ensemble. Color guard/winter guard members must be enrolled in the Eurhythmics class which is scheduled during the 7th period and meets daily. In addition to learning to spin flags, rifles, and sabers, the class included physical conditioning and dance/movement training. Therefore, students enrolled in the Eurhythmics class are expected to dress appropriately for each class session. Because of the physical nature of class, students with physical limitation (especially those involving shoulders, knees and ankles) must discuss these conditions with the color guard class instructor prior to beginning training. In some cases limitations and/or injuries may interfere so much that the student will be placed on “alternate status” until such time as the instructors and band director feel the student is able to perform without risking further personal injury or the integrity of the program.
Each student must comply with all rules and regulations for the organization. The student agrees to attend all after-school rehearsals and performances as a member of the Marching Band and Winter Guard. (Exceptions made in advance through band director approval only). Each member must be in good standing within the band program. Placement into the Varsity or Junior Varsity winter guard is based on an audition and the student’s performance and attitude during the previous season.
