Program Overview

The colorguard program is a part of the EHS Marching Band, which is sponsored by the Evergreen HS Band, Colorguard and Orchestra Boosters.  There are currently two different seasons throughout the school year of which all are available to participate in once you are accepted into the program.  The seasons are broken down as the winter guard season and the spring parade season.  As a member of the color guard program it is encouraged that each student participates in all aspects of the program.

What is Colorguard

Colorguard can be found in most American colleges, universities, high schools, and independent drum corps. Colorguard uses props, along with movement, to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the marching band show. Usually marching bands and colorguards perform during football games at halftime, out of tradition.

Rehearsal Attendance

All rehearsals are mandatory to maintain an active participation in the colorguard program.  In order to maintain the high level of performance excellence it is necessary for each individual to be at rehearsals to learn new skills and to enrich previously learned skills.

Program Costs:

Each member of the marching band and colorguard pays what is called a Fair Share towards the overall costs of the program for that season.  This only covers a portion of the overall budget, of which the Band Boosters supplement through fundraising, etc.  The estimated Fair Share amount for the winter season (2019-2020) will be $450.00.  In addition the colorguard members have a uniform fee, gloves,  and (if a member of the rifle line) a rifle.  There are usually member generated fees to promote the team concept, such as a guard sweatshirt or sweatpants, etc.  These are disclosed as they become available.
