Home Football Games for Colorguard Students
The call time for home football games is 5:00pm for the guard. You will fix your hair and make up (as specified), get dressed in the correct uniform and start stretching. No necklaces or bracelets are allowed while in uniform (except special, medical alert bracelets). Other piercings such as face or ears must have plain, small studs such as clear diamonds, silver, gold, white pearls or clear plugs. At the pre determined time (usually 6-6:15), you will meet outside to warm up. After warm up, we will take equipment bags to the field and meet the band in the quad to march down with 1 flag. Once on the track, you will stand at parade rest until it is time for the star spangled banner or fight song. During the SSB, you DO NOT move, except to sing. During the fight song, you will perform the routine. After that, we will go into the stands for the game. You will pay attention and cheer for the team. When the band plays, you will dance, clap or do the dance you are taught. When there are 7 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, we will go down to the track to warm up for half-time. After the performance, we return to the stands to cheer. While in the stands, you are only allowed to drink water. No food or other beverages. Only band members are allowed in the band section. No parents, friends or alumni. If you are on the end, you will not spend the game talking to other people. It is a performance and you are there to support our team, not socialize. After the game, we play the fight song on the track and march up to the band room. When you have changed, cleared the area and checked with the captains and instructors, you may leave. This is usually around 10-10:15.
