The color guard helps bring the marching band show to life, through dance, theatrics, and equipment. The color guard often rehearses outside of band practices, taking extra time to learn and perfect technique that is essential to their success.
The winter guards compete in the SCGC (Southeastern Color Guard Circuit) and WGI (Winter Guard International). They compete regionally with guards from Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky. They have competed nationally, where they have performed in the semi-finals round at WGI World Championships. The SA guard was the 2012 SCGC Bronze Medalist.
