Hello 2019-2020 ColorGuard Members! We are happy to have you! Below you will find some information that pertains specifically to ColorGuard Members.
Tuesday/Thursday Music rehearsals listed under the calendar tab will be skills practices/routine learning. If you are not on vacation (please make sure to tell me if you will be gone!) it is expected that you will come to learn new skills and help new members even if you are a veteran member. Our practice will be the same duration as music rehearsal in the gym.
As we move into the season practice videos will be posted on the Facebook page broken down by counts, please use these to help build skills and practice at home!
Kaley will be at all of away camp! Due to this we will not hold extra flag practice outside of what is already setup for band camp before we go to away camp. Our first home football game is not until 8/30 so we will have plenty of time to hold extra practice if further routine learning practices are needed after the week of post camp.
***Following away band camp Kaley will assess how far we have learned and cleaned the routines and possibly assign an extra few practices**** These will be mandatory if you are in town and have not set up a work schedule previously. If you are unable to attend you will be responsible for getting with leadership to learn what you have missed.
NOTE THAT ALL pre, away, and post camp dates for band camp must be attended by Colorguard members. Rookie colorguard members must also attend rookie camp. We have band practice Tuesday –Thursday after school until 6pm during the season. On Wednesdays flags will practice until 6:45 for the first few weeks of school as we have done the past few years so that we may have some flag specific time. Please keep this in mind if you are making work schedules as you are expected to stay. We will get you out as soon as possible if you have Wed Night Church. As we move into the season these Wednesday extra practices will decrease and then end!
