In the Fall, Color Guard is a vital part of the Marching Band field show and a requirement for competition. The unit is judged on its own merits, but also contributes to the overall success of the Marching Band. Fall Color Guard members attend band camp at Orkney in August and perform at the football games and Marching Band competitions. This terrific group was instrumental in the Cougar Marching Band achieving a SUPERIOR rating during the 2012 marching season.
After Fall Color Guard ends, Winter Guard begins. This larger, more theatrical group competes indoors and travels to competitions throughout the region. The Winter Guard competes in regional competitions throughout the season. They combine dance, flags and the use of equipment to create challenging and entertaining performances.
