    The Colorguard program at Georgetown HS is an organization on campus that enhances and promotes performance, teamwork, and self confidence.  Potential members must audition in late spring for the following school year.  Once accepted into the group, the length of membership is for one school year, and then the student must re-audition the following spring.

    The colorguard student has many exciting opportunities to perform at football games, pep rallies, community functions, local/state/national contests, out of state trips, middle schools, and other various venues.

     
    Each colorguard student must sign up for the DAN/CG class.  At the end of a full year the student will receive either a Fine Arts credit or a PE Waiver.

          Students will have a fee to participate in the organization.  This fee will be announced towards the end of the school year when end of the year budgets are announced.  There will be a minimum out of pocket expense, but the rest can be worked off through fundraising opportunities that are set up.  All financial questions and concerns should be directed to Mr. Justin Smith (Director of Bands) at smithj9@georgetownisd.org 

     


     

    The Georgetown HS Colorguard has been a part of the Georgetown HS Eagle Band for many decades.  However in the past few years, it has become a well established group not only in the Marching Colorguard world of central Texas, but also a respected and award winning Winterguard program.  The group has been promoted multiple times, won multiple trophies, in 2007 was the Texas Colorguard Circuit Scholastic AAA State Silver Medalist, and in 2008 and 2010 the Texas Colorguard Circuit Scholastic AA Bronze Medalist.

    In 2012, the Colorguard had two successful competing units...a first ever Varsity and JV Team.  In their first years of existence, the Varsity team made Regional Finals at two WGI Regionals (a first ever achievement) and the JV team was the Silver Medalist in the Scholastic Regional A Class.

    The spring of 2000 marked the debut of the GHS Winterguard.  In that first year, they competed in the Novice class finishing 4th at the TCGC State Championships.  The group took a break until 2005 when they came back and found themselves promoted 3 times (in one season) to compete in the Scholastic AAA class.  The group has competed each year in TCGC contests and WGI Regionals (making finals in 4 regionals in the last 6 years).  The spring of 2007, was a high point when the group won their first medal at the State Championships.  The tradition continued in 2008 and 2010, as the guard won 2 Bronze Medal trophies at championships.  In 2012, the first year of having a JV Guard, the group won the Silver Medal in the Sch. Regional A Class.  In 2014, the team made finals in 2 WGI Regionals as well as finishing in an amazing top 12 Finals at State Championships in the Scholastic National A Class.  In 2017, the Varsity returned to the WGI Finals in San Antonio, and also debuted a new and award winning JV team.  Past shows include:
