CVHS COLORGUARD

Colorguard is an integral part of the Central Valley High School Marching Band! Colorguard members are the visual story tellers who incorporate the use of what we call THE TRIAD: body/dance, drill/movement, and equipment/flag or faux weapons like riffles and sabers from the military tradition of silent drill teams.

You instantly become part of the award-winning Central Valley HS Band program. Anyone is welcome to be a member of the colorguard. We want to introduce you to the skills and help you join Central Valley HS Marching Band - a place where you can meet a lot of fantastic people and perform with an amazing program.

We are hosting an Open Call for students to come and work out with some amazing volunteer coaches, and to ask questions about the program.

We interested expect students to have very little or even NO experience. You are welcome no matter what. It'll be our job to help you grow into the best version of you! So come give it a try!

All members must attend the virtual Marching Band Registration night on Tuesday, June 15th to complete their application process. Please email Mrs. Barrett with any questions at kbarrett@cvsd.org.
