Potential members should have at least one year of colorguard experience. Exceptions can be made on an individual basis, especially for those with experience in twirling, cheerleading or drill team.
The colorguard is required to be present at all rehearsals and performances. The colorguard rehearses with the band three days a week (Monday, 11:50-12:45 & WF 11:15-12:45.) and has a sectional once a week outside of the scheduled band time. Sectional days and times will be determined by the co-captains and members based on schedules.
All colorguard members are eligible for the Big Purple scholarship.
