Guard Info

  • For more information about Color Guard and/or the John Champe Band Program as a whole, visit the Band Website.

    Current Guard Members can check their account balance by logging into Charms.

    Current Guard Members should be in the Guard Schoology Group for the latest updates: F2K2-2F6K-BDGKF 

    Students must be a member of the Outdoor Guard to be eligible to participate as a member of Indoor Guard. This allows students the time to develop the necessary training and skills for the more demanding and technically advanced indoor color guard show.
