Vacations: We understand that our Guard Members take vacations and that is not a problem. If you haven't already done so, we ask that they let the coaches know as soon as possible which dates they will not be there.
Guard Camp: The last two weeks of summer vacation (July 31-August 4 and August 7-11, time to be determined). We ask that all Guard Members do their best not to make vacations plans for the entire two weeks of Guard Camp.
Fall Field Season: Four to five competitions on Saturdays (competitions to be determined).
Winter Guard Season: Five competitions plus Championships on weekends (competitions to be determined). Practice hours to be determined.
Cost: See 2017-18 estimated Schedule of Costs. However, Dance Guard is very lucky to have the school cover most of the expenses (costumes, poms poms, equipment, etc.) but there will be some expenses, such as personalized items (warm-ups, practice shirts, flag bags), tights, jazz shoes, ribbons, make-up, etc. Individuals will be responsible for lost items which have been provided for by the school, such as poms poms or equipment. Of course, Guard Members can elect to purchase items if they want to keep them.
Let us know if you have any questions.
