These shows can be so much fun to watch. The members of our three teams put in a lot of hard work and dedication to learn these routines that can be very technically challenging and difficult to perform. They work tirelessly to learn new skills and practice their synchronization so that they can put on a good show for you and be competitive against other color guard teams.
The performances usually last between 3 to 7 minutes which may not seem like a long time, but it takes a lot of practice and effort to make sure all the movements are in sync and perfect. Winter Guard performances are methodically planned out down to the second and need to be executed with exactness to get the full effect of the show.
Reagan Winter Guard competes in the Texas Color Guard Circuit and Winter Guard International competitions. They do this regionally against other schools who have teams in their area, or they may compete on a national level. In competitions, Winter Guard teams are judged in the areas of talent, precision, creativity, and horizontal orchestration (how all the elements create the larger picture/effect). Performances incorporate equipment, props, and dance moves.
