Color Guard

The Color Guard is a talented group of students in grades 9-12. The Guard is a vital unit of the marching band, providing essential visual effect. They combine dance, flags, rifles and sabers into a routine unique to the Holt Color Guard.

Color Guard is open to all students entering grades 9-12. Students are selected by competitive audition in the Spring. Audition/Clinic dates will be posted here when they are selected.

Practices begin with a two-week camp starting the last week of July followed quickly by one additional week. Once school starts practices begin each morning at 6:30 and run until 8:10. In addition, the guard practices from 3:30 to 6:00 every Tuesday evening through October.

The Color Guard performs with the Wentzville Holt Indian Band at all home football games and at five to six marching festivals in the fall.
