This is an organization of skilled females and/or males that learn countless marching drills, twirl flags, rifles, sabers or other items in time with music from the band or to drum solo's. They spend countless days during the summer in the heat on asphalt learning drills, marching for hours on to produce a show that usually last about 10 minutes. They can throw their item of choice up to 10 feet in the air and as the item is in the air it spins in rotation to land back in the hands of the person who threw it or to another person it was thrown to. Some guard people can even spin around while said item is in the air before they catch this item. WGI- most of the people in band and guard are honor students and/or straight A students.
1. a semi-cult which no one outside of it understands, because they cannot handle the greatness of it
2. a group of girls, and occasionally a gay guy, who make marching band far more interesting by dancing and twirling flags, sabres, rifles, batons, and sometimes the odd prop or two
Person 1: I don't like marching band shows. They're so boring.
Person 2: No they're not! Look at the shiny flags and weapons.
1. A true test of physical strength and ability.
2. The only place where you can legally flip it, whip it, and strip it!
Oooh! Shiny flags...
Totally the shit. A sport. Is harder than cheerleading
Color Guard sure looks awesome.
girls (or guys) who freeze their butts off on football fields during field shows but still have the hugest smiles on their faces(hey showmanship points r always the easiest!!!) who start to think band or drumline guys r hot because they have no life outside of band/colorguard prac. and are always in step with the person next to you even when youre not in competition or at practice! also people who have the time of their lives tossing flags and hating it when people mistaken them for CHEERLEADERS.

A group of people dedicated to representing thier school the best way possible by spinning flags, rifle, sabers and other equipment. This group marches with a marching band and compliments the music they play through the use of color, body movement, and equipment.
Everyone in the COLOR GUARD did a beautiful toss just as the cymbals crashed.
Colorguard means spending every waking hour trying to improve each toss, becoming more emotional, hearing your guard instructor yell at you at the top of his lungs"Focus!Detail!Expression!Technique!"It about loving what you do, with the people you people you love-your guard family, a sisterhood(or family-depending of weather there is a guard boy) it's being everything you want to be in that moment-when your on the floor. It's our life, it's our love, it's our family, it's us......
A group of highly talented teenage girls. They must be able to dance, spin various pieces of equipment, hold their head up and portray emotion, and march in time, and pretend that its not negative 100 degress outside. It is the colorguard's job to bring life to a piece of music. They must be able to use their bodies, along with their equipment, to give the music a personality. Contrary to popular belief, they are not the rejects of the Cheerleader, the dance team, ext. Any guard girl could stand in front of a crowd and scream "Go Team Go!" however I really doubt a cheerleader could pick up a rifle, throw a quad, and catch it, all while holding your head high and portraying the emotion of the show. Many members of the band/drumline like to blame the colorguard when the band/drumline does bad, however, it is usually not their fault. I say usually because every group, band, colorguard, && drumline, will have a bad show sometime. Putting that aside though, it is the colorguard's ability to come back from a bad show and be 10X fiercer then last week that makes them so freakin' ah-mazing. Never try to understand a conversation between guard girls. Being in a colorguard mean developing the best friendships ever and therefore, many inside jokes that you will never understand. In conclusion, colorguard is ah-mazing && anyone who gets on here and says they aren't should just go ahead and go have sexual intercourse with themselves, mkay? No, really, just do it!more...
