Course Description

The ensemble performs with the Marching Band during first semester, then competes on its own during the winter/spring in gymnasiums in the Winter Guard Association of Southern California Just as students who are enrolled in Marching Band on an instrument, Color Guard members must be co-enrolled in a Music Department course during the core six-period day. Students in Color Guard who also play an instrument are exempt from this co-enrollment requirement. This course meets daily during 4th Period at the same time as Vocal Ensemble. Students will be with guard staff at least three times each week, and sometimes rehearsing in other rooms on campus. Winter Guard members should be enrolled in Fourth Period Color Guard that is concurrent with Vocal Ensemble.  Winter Guard students will be enrolled in Seventh Period Stage Band to receive fine arts credit and a grade for the time they have committed to the program.

Rancho Campana High School Students: Students who attend RCHS have the opportunity to take Color Guard and Winter Guard at ACHS, since they are not a course offering at RCHS. All students interested in doing this should contact the director to be properly enrolled. Rancho Campana students are encouraged to enroll in the dance course offered at RCHS as their co-requisite.

Winter Guard

The Winter Guard is an ensemble that begins in December and runs until April. This ensemble performs in gymnasiums to a soundtrack while using the same equipment used in Marching Band and Color Guard. Winter Guard competes regionally in a highly regarded circuit, Winter Guard Association of Southern California (WASG).

There are rehearsals after school, and the ensemble requires a huge financial and time commitment on its own. Due to high interest in this activity from students outside of the fall Color Guard and other musicians, the ensemble will be audition based to ensure placement on the appropriate equipment for each member. Please review important dates and the performance schedule before committing to this program and taking the spot of someone who is able to properly commit to this group.

Performance Attire

Formal performances: Color/Winter Guard students will need dance shoes, bodytight, and gloves. Costumes are provided by the guard and are property of the program. ACHS band polo shirt and sweatshirt are optional for marching season.
