Flags/Color Guard

Please contact me with any questions you have!

Check out our video to meet the captains and find our more about color guard.

our 2021-2022 season Is already underway!

We can't wait to see you at our upcoming school events! If you are interested in joining for the 2022-2023 school year, please contact coach Rachel Riley at rriley@elmhurst205.org to be put on our contact list. Have a great school year!

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.  

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!
