The 2020 Winterguard season has started off well for both our Varsity and JV guards with performances at two NTCA competitions and a WGI competition. At the NTCA show we hosted at Lamar, our JV guard received 3rd place in their round.
The Lamar Guard program supports student’s growth in the areas of movement as a means for expression and an in-depth teaching of equipment manipulation for flag, rifle and sabre. Allowing students to discover, explore and take ownership of performance as a means of expression is the highest goal of the Lamar Guard program.
With a long history of competitive success both as part of the Lamar Marching Band during the fall season and as its own competing body in the winter season, the Lamar Guard is excited to move into the upcoming winter season with two guards, a Varsity team and a JV team. Additionally, Lamar Guard is excited to expand its competitive range this upcoming season with a regional performance in Austin (WGI regional) as well as performances at the WGI Dallas Regional and WGI Denton Super Regionals. Both groups will compete in approximately eight shows throughout the season as well as local perfomances for the community and school body!
To join the program, students can audition for the fall semester in April 2020. Winterguard auditions for the 2020 season have already concluded and auditions for the 2021 season will be posted next year.
Coming up for the 2019-2020 Winterguard Competition Season
Lamar NTCA Show
We are excited to have been chosen by the North Texas Colorguard Association to host a competition on February 1, 2020. We will need plenty of volunteers to make this successful for our band program as a whole. UPDATE!! Thank you to all the many volunteers who came out to make this the most successful show we have hosted! We could not have done it without you!
