Welcome To Color Guard

The Difference between Fall and Winter Color Guard

Fall color guard performs outside with the Marching Band during halftime at football games and various competitions against other Marching Bands.  Winter guard teams perform inside, in a gym, on a tarp, against other winter guard teams.

Kassie Pierson

I currently work as an assistant for a Realtor Team, as well as being a full time student currently enrolled at Elmhurst University. I started my time as a color guard performer when I was in junior high by participating in the Carl Sandburg junior high night performace. I continued color guard all the way through high school and ended up being a part of the Andrew winter guard team in my senior year of high school. Once I graduated I was asked to join the staff and now I share my love for color guard with others!
