Welcome to The Spirit of St. Louis Color Guard

DIRECTOR:    Mr. Jamie Hutson, jhutson@lindberghschools.ws

 

COLOR GUARD 

The LHS Spirit of St. Louis Color Guard is for students who wish to enhance music through the use of equipment and body movements and learn the fundamentals of flag spinning.  They participate with the Marching Band and auditions are held yearly. 

 

COLOR GUARD SCHEDULE 

All performances, competitions, and football games for Marching band/color guard can be found on the Marching Band calendar on Marching Band Toolkit (MTK) at Lindbergh Bands Bandstanders - Calendar (membershiptoolkit.com). You will need to log in to the MTK and click on the CALENDAR tab or check the App. The Calendar can also be “synced” to your personal calendar (and that of your student) so you won’t miss a thing!! However as with all things, it is subject to change so if you do sync it with your personal calendar, it will certainly make things much easier to keep track of. The band directors do everything within their power to adhere to this schedule but things happen. Always check the calendar before making any vacation plans too.

Please refer to Marching Band Schedule and Events Guide for more specific details.

** Color Guard follows the Marching Band schedule unless otherwise noted. They will also have additional sectional practices which will be communicated by director.

WINTER GUARD

Students are able to audition to become a member of the Lindbergh H.S. Winter Guard, with tryouts typically held in late October/early November. Winter Guard is an extracurricular activity that practices outside of the regular school day, with the practice season starting in November and continuing through early April. Members use the elements of dance and various props including (but not limited to) flags, rifles and sabers to perform a specific show theme chosen for the season. Winter Guard performs indoors on a gymnasium floor and competes at competitions both inside and outside the St. Louis area. State Championships are held each year in Springfield, MO (visit www.mccga.org for more info). A full calendar with practice schedule, competition events, and other activities will be provided to each member.

Our monthly giving program makes it possible for every LHS student to have the opportunity to play in the band, regardless of cost.
