Thank you for your interest in joining us this winter season! For those that do not know, the winter guard is a group of students in middle school and high school that learn choreography of dance, flag and other equipment to music that you hear on the radio!   Everyone grades 6th-12th is welcome, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

This year we will be putting together a very special experience, to bring back some type of normalcy! We will still be following COVID protocols and socially distancing during all rehearsals!

The audition dates are currently as follows: January 11th – January 15th from 4:30pm – 6:00pm at the JL Mann High School Band Room.  You will need to bring the following on the first day of auditions, it is due January 11th:
- Winter Guard Audition Form
- Parent Permission Form
- 2 Teacher Recommendations
- Leadership Application (if auditioning)

We do require that a mask be worn as well as athletic clothing and all hair needs to be pulled up or off the face! On Friday, January 15th students should wear all black for auditions.

If you are unable to attend all 5 days of auditions, that’s okay! You must come to at least ONE day as well as Friday (the day you physically audition.) If you need to miss the audition week please email Ms. Broome ASAP so audition material can be sent to you.


ALL AUDITIONS WILL REQUIRED BY JANUARY 15th, both in person and video.


Upon being offered a spot on the team, $275 of fair share will be due on the first rehearsal.
