Dec. 7 Winter Guard auditions have been CANCELLED due to school closure. We will post more information, when it becomes available.

STUDENTS:  Here are 8 reasons you should come to Winter Guard try-outs on THURSDAY, December 7th from 4-6:30pm in the Band Room (M102): DATE TBD

  1. You like to dance: Color Guard students train in a variety of dance styles. Performances may include a mix of ballet, jazz, modern and/or contemporary dance.
  2. You like to throw things: Color Guard students spin, twirl and toss props such as flags, rifles and sabers.
  3. You’ve got a competitive spirit: After marching band season ends, the Samohi Color Guard prepares an indoor show and competes against other high schools in tournaments sponsored by the Winter Guard Association of Southern California.
  4. A big “S” would look good on your jacket: After 3 seasons, Color Guard participants earn a Samohi Varsity letter.
  5. You want an impressive skill to list on college applications: Many colleges & universities are looking for students with Color Guard training. Some of them give annual scholarships or grants to every member of their Color Guards.
  6. You’re exploring alternatives to traditional P.E. classes: Students in the Winter Guard class receive P.E. credit, just like members of Samohi’s athletic teams and Pep Squad.
  7. You have an artistic side: Color Guard students have a hand in designing the backdrops and clothing for their Winter Guard show.
  8. You’re always hungry on Thursday afternoons: At try-outs we’ll provide drinks & snacks!

Winter Guard is taught during Period A. Try-outs are open to all Samohi students. We hope to see you in the Band Room on December 7th! DATE TBD
