Please reach out to Mrs. Riley if you are interested in receiving emails about joining in the spring. :)

WELCOME TO YORK COLOR GUARD!
We are a dance-based flag team who performs with the Dukes Marching Band during the Fall Marching Season. We perform at all home football games, as well as pep rallies, Elmhurst parades, and various school/ local events. Given the uncertainties in this school year, we are unsure exactly what performance opportunities we have for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, but we look forward to offering some clinics in the spring as we look ahead to 2021-2022!

2021-2022 SEASON INFORMATION
A commitment to color guard means that you are able to attend:

  • Weekly afternoon summer rehearsals
  • "Band Camp"- full-day rehearsals with the band for several days before school begins
  • Weekly evening rehearsals once school is back in session
  • Daily rehearsals during periods 4 and 5A during the marching season (roughly the first quarter of the school year)*

*Please note: ALL members of color guard MUST be able to fit the marching band lunch/ lab class into their fall schedules in order to march halftime with us. The marching band class only lasts for about the first quarter, and replaces P.E. Please check with your counselor to make sure you would be able to make this commitment!
