Winterguard is a competitive group that travels around the Dayton area and competes against other high school groups. It uses the concepts of color guard and dance to create a 5 minute show. Members of Winterguard will work together to create a fully chorepgraphed competitive routine. Our season begins with an information meeting in November and concludes in April.


Students in 7th Grade to 12th grade may audition for one of the spots in Winter Guard. Auditions will in November each year. Sign ups will be posted in the band room prior to auditions to secure your spot.

Final placements will be posted in the band room following auditions.


It is my goal to allow everyone who auditions to join the ensemble. I will do everything I can to allow everyone to participate but there is a chance that not everyone will be able to join.

Once placements are posted, they are final. The only changes would be due to someone revoking their audition after getting placed. I will not place you in a position where you might fail or get discouraged. I will place you where I feel best fits your ability and your needs. If you are not in agreement with the placement, please schedule a meeting with me so we can discuss the reasoning behind the placement.

Performance Schedule

Rehearsal Schedule

The rehearsal schedule will be given to you by the director at the start of the season. You will be responsible for checking the schedule and giving that information to your families.

Expectations for Rehearsal

It is expected that you are at every rehearsal that is scheduled. I do understand that things come up but this group cannot be successful if we are missing people during rehearsal. It may seem like we have a lot of rehearsals to prepare for the competitive season but these go by quickly. If you have to miss a rehearsal, please notify me in advance (3 days). If it is an emergency, I completely understand. Work is not an excuse for missing rehearsal. You will be given a calendar of all dates at our first full rehearsal. You must be on time and be ready to start working right away. While at rehearsal, I need you to be focused on what we are doing. There will be times, during breaks, to socialize with everyone but when we are working on the show, we must be only worried about

We will be using a facebook group to communicate with students during the season. You will be invited to join the group after rehearsals begin. You will be responsible for communicating information with your parents.


To help keep our fees fairly low, compared to most groups, we are going to be doing fundraisers. Information sheets for each fundraiser will be given out once each fundraiser has been verified.



Fees for the season are $155 and can be paid on the website. Your fees will cover your uniforms, flags, and competitions. No other alternate uniforms or flags can be used. We will all look uniform and professional at every show.

When paying for your fees, payment plans are available through PayPal and other check out tools.
