Truely skilled and talented teenagers and college age students. Both men and women are a part of colorguard. And NO the men are not always homosexual. Colorguards add a punch of color and fun to a marching bands field show. Colorguard teams will SPIN not TWIRL flags, rifles, sabres, and many other things (i.e. brooms,different props such as wood cut into a 1/2 moon shape or just about anything). Colorguards may also do an indoor show which is done on a basketball court sized floor with beautiful floor covering and the shows are done to music that the girls(and or guys) pick out and mix together. Colorguard girls are no longer the fatt and ugly girls like it used to be now its anyone that has the ability to spin a 5-8 foot pole that is about 6 pounds and a 5 pound rifle and do it in time with the music as well as march in time and on step with the rest of the band all while spinning and tossing and catching and dancing and acting to the judges. Any one who says that colorguard isn't hard should see my shoulder I have a rotator cuff that needs surgery and elbows and wrists that already have arthritis. I have more injuries form colorguard then from soccer and I was on the Varsity team for BOTH. NORE are colorguard members WHORES, SLUTS, or anything else liek that. Yes, I'm sure that there are some on teams throught the country; however, that is the case with all sports teams and culbs.
Guard is spending most, if not all, of your free time practicing something that will not get you a job. It will not get you money. It probably will not even give you personally any awards, yet guard is an award all in itself. It is striving to be the best you can be. It is getting along with other people no matter how much you do not want to. It is spending every Saturday performing your heart out just for the sake of knowing what life is truly all about. Guard is smiling through that last half hour of practice, no matter how much you want to go home. It is coming together with other people who love guard as much as you. It is becoming a better team player. It is overcoming fear. It is performing. It is bettering yourself in many subject areas, all at once.
Guard is Math:
It is rhythmically based on the subdivision of time in music. It incorporates various angles, sequences and geometric shapes on a plane.
Guard is Language:
It is a language all its own that expresses an emotion or tells a story through movement. It uses many aspects brought together to provide the entire picture much as sentences form a paragraph.
Guard is Science:
It is a study of physics. Equipment must be accurately utilised to create a desired effect based on force, speed, and reactions.
Guard is History:
History, as the study of people, is a major part of the guard environment. Guard is the allowing of very different people to find a common ground. It is influenced by the past and influences the future as it goes along.
Guard is a Sport:
It is a test of physical dexterity, stamina, hand-eye coordination, body control, strength, and balance. It is a game that we play as a team, bettering ourselves through practice, both on our own and as a unit. It is competitive. We compete against ourselves to become better, as well as against other guards for awards. It has fans, as any sport does. It has those that are fans of the sport, as well as those fond of a particular group alone. They are with us through thick and thin, whether we win or lose. They give back what we give to them.
Guard is Art:
It is a performing art of the greatest degree. It involves the audience through music, color, excitement, story lines, dance, and a flair that is unique to each performing unit.
Guard is Education:
It is learning, trying new things, and doing things you may be uncomfortable doing. It is learning about others, as well as yourself. It is learning about the world around us.
Guard is Life:
It is beauty, love, talent, cooperation, learning, challenges, and raw emotion. It is becoming the best person you can possibly be. It is the greatest natural high.

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 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 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!
