A highly intense sport in which a group of teenage girls (or boys) spin various objects most notably flags rifles and sabers. They are often not given the credit they desierve though anyone who has "show how easy it was to be in guard" has quickly realised that it not only requires immense skill but a shit load of guts. Unlike the band they preform year round in outdoor and indoor venues. As a member of the Drumline I would give my highest respect to the guard.

A group of girls (or guys) who are very talented! They spin, toss, and dance alongside of the marching band. They have to remember several tough routines, know the exact counts, and march to their exact spots on the field. People may not realize it, but a there are a lot of hot guard girls. Most people just stare at them. Oh and by the way, it is actually a sport unlike cheerleading.
Bob---"woah man did you see the color guard and that toss they just did?"

Greg---"yea and did you see that girl's ass in her unitard?"

A group of girls or guys who march with the band and provide the band's "visual" aspect. They are way more talented than cheerleaders, even though the cheerleaders get all the credit. Sometimes WRONGLY referred to as "wannabe cheerleaders" even though people on color guard look down on cheerleaders for having NO talent and for being so stupid. Color guard people toss and twirl flags, rifles, and sabres, and continually defy the laws of gravity by tossing like 10 pound rifles and 6 foot flags over their heads. It is a SPORT which requires a lot of physical endurance and it is way more artistic than cheerleading. It is also WAY harder!
The color guard was so beautiful and the cheerleaders were so ugly!
we're the "icing on the cake" we make the band look pretty and put some color in to the band on the field with many visuals using flags,rifles,sabres,or anything else you can find
go to a marcing band competition and see the guard strut their stuff and twirl those falgs!!

1. An amazing varsity sport in which teenage girls wear inresting costumes and at-times-exessive makeup in order to provide visuals for a marching band show
2. the visual movement ensamble of a marching band
Those colorguard members look really medeival in those velvet dresses.

People who are too talented for the dance team and way too smart for cheerleading. If you can toss it or spin it, it's most likely going to be in the show.
Andrew: I hate the color guard. Jenny if you were on the dance team....
Jenny: *Beats the living crap out of Andrew.* Color guard beats the living crap out of dance team!!

A person who is multi talented and do a routine with at least one of these flag, rifle, baton, and can in some cases dance, must know how to march.
Look at the color guard in the band their flags are so pretty.
