Color Guard Fundraisers
Fundraising Ideas For Color Guard and Winter Guard
Color Guard is not legally recognized as a sport, although it matches the definition of a sport because to its intense physical demands and competitive character. However, just ask any Color Guard member—This is a team sport that requires both talent and physical endurance and is practiced against other teams for entertainment.
Sounds like a sport to us!
Color guards, also known as flag corps, are groups of performers who perform scripted dances and routines with a variety of equipment to complement and interpret the music of a marching band performance. Colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, and independent drum corps all have color guard teams.
On the other hand, a winter guard is identical to outdoor color guard with the exception that the performances are held indoors on gymnasium floors during the winter time.
Football, marching band and Color Guards go hand in hand
At halftime of football games, color guards perform with marching bands. The guard contributes to the band’s overall score during competitions and can be scored in a variety of areas, including but not limited to visual effects, general effect, auxiliary, and color guard.
They use a variety of props, including as flags, swing flags, tapered flags, non-functioning weapons, and sabres, among other things.
It takes money to pay for these props, costumes, competition fees and transportation costs to compete in the Winter Guard International / WGI Championships.
Where will that money come from? School marching bands look for band fundraising ideas. And so your high school color guard will need to do the same. Here are some tips, ideas and suggestions to try.
