About the Program

The Cadet Winter Guard is designated for middle school students in grades 6-8. The Cadet program functions as a feeder program for the high school Fall and Winter color guards. Students in the Cadet program will compete in the SAPA regional circuit and will do a full winter guard production. The Cadet program is designed to give the students a head start on high school color guard focusing on basic movement and equipment fundamentals. Equipment may include Flag, Wooden Rifle and Saber. Cadet students will have reduced rehearsal hours and performance demands in comparison to the high school guard. Students must attend either JJ Daniell, Simpson or McClesky Middle Schools and be in good academic standing.
