Winter Guard is an indoor Color Guard activity that stems from the summer and fall marching band season. Instead of performing outdoors on a football field with the Marching Band, Winter Guard takes place indoors in a gym and it is divided into Junior Varsity and Varsity teams. Winter Guard performs to music using dance and employs various pieces of equipment such as flags, rifles, and sabres. Grand Oaks Winter Guard competes under the Texas Color Guard Circuit and at Winter Guard International.
Winter Guard charges a second fee, separate from that paid for Marching Season. These fees will be determined by the Color Guard Director and will be billed in an installment plan similar to the one offered in the Fall. Winter Guard fees have generally run ~$450 for JV members and $550 for Varsity members. You will get more information about the financial committment Winter Guard incurs in November.
