Winterguard helps beat winter blues

Jenna Parsons, Staff Writer

Winterguard, color guard indoors– otherwise known as the flags in the marching band– provides students with a way to learn something new during the winter, while having fun.

“Winterguard is so much fun. You need no experience going into it; it’s such a great way to meet new people and you make so many memories. On top of that, it is so much fun traveling and performing. Seeing other teams is awesome too. I’ve loved winterguard for the past two years I’ve done it. It’s such an amazing experience,” senior Abby Guiliaems said.

The Winterguard tryouts will take place Monday, Oct. 29 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at Ike ; attendance is mandatory to join. There will be a parent meeting on Monday, Nov. 5 at 5:30 pm at Ike.

“The clinic will entail starting off by learning basic dance moves, how we march/walk, basic flag moves and we even throw in learning some tosses as well,” coach Vikki Corbin said. “This is our third consecutive Winterguard season. If anyone from the middle schools looks forward to joining Colorguard in 9th grade during the summer/fall, this is a team they can join and give them experience prior to joining.”
