COLOR GUARD AND WINTER GUARD
This is a visual ensemble that adds to the pageantry and dynamic of the on-field performance of the marching band. These students earn membership by going through an audition process in the spring semester. They then receive special training to develop the skills that they use to enhance the marching program. Summer camp for Color Guard usually starts early in mid-July.
Francis Howell High School color guard/winter guard is becoming a very competitive group in the greater St. Louis area. Those in color guard for the marching season who want to perform in a different environment enjoy this winter activity.
Winter guard performs a routine to recorded music. Not only is there an effort to perform well for winter guard, but this activity helps strengthen the color guard for the upcoming marching season.
