• Performance- Candidates will be judged on smile, facial expression, posture and attitude as well as how well they followed directions.

There is no set number of members for the colorguard.
Candidates are determined by scores.
Tryout groups will consist of four candidates per group. Groups will be assigned the morning of auditions.
Each group will have one or more veteran color guard members to help new candidates.
