Ex.: Guards (and sometimes along their bands) are ranked in CLASS (sometimes NOVICE{this is not a usual class name used for beginners and may not be official for beginner guards}, SCHOLASTIC, INDEPENDENT, OPEN, WORLD), with numbers (roman numerals I, II, or III) or sometimes letters (A, AA, or AAA).
The classes are ordered so awards are given to various guard/band sizes and sometimes performance difficulty.
Not all bands/guards reach the same level.
Ex.: If you compare one of the best high school marching bands and guards in Japan along with some average high school marching bands and guards in the United States...
6. Not everybody has to be skinny/slim for guard... you just need to have some body control and muscle. Some guards do require body limits but that's just them. NOT ALL GUARDS DO THAT!
Our school's cheerleaders aren't all perfectly slim and fit but I believe all of them are awesome cheerleaders because they work hard at something they enjoy. Same with other activities...
High School Colorguard (Marching Band) Def. Part 3 Ex.

With the wooden mock rifles/plastic mock rifles or "rifles," their weights can range from 3-7 pounds. The sizes can range from 28" to 39" or even 40"!
Sizes and weights of them can be determined by the users/director's/instructor's needs for rifle speed, skill level usage, appearance, ...

Sabres can come in different sizes and weights but are usually the lightest of the equipment used. For varying skill levels or movements, the sabre can be a bit hard to control and maybe for this reason, it is used commonly for the "graceful" or ballad parts of a performance.

Other equipment such as those "diary key-rifles" or "airblades"... those are special but weird too...
