  1. Do I have to have experience to try out? Yes, we require you to have at least 1 year of experience before joining.
  2. Can you audition by video or another day? We will no longer be offering video auditions. We want to make sure that all candidates are given the same opportunities and we want to make tryouts as fair as possible. Video auditions do not allow for this.
  3. Who are the judges for the auditions? The judges are a mix of past members of the Southeastern Colorguard and other coaches from around the area.
  4. Are there specific hair and make-up requirements? No, there are no specific requirements, but we ask that you perform with your hair down because that is the style the Colorguard uses. Make-up should be done as if ready for public performance. You must come to tryouts completely ready. There will be no time before final auditions begin to do this.
  5. What should I wear to tryouts? You should be in audition black, meaning a black shirt or tank top that is snug. You should also be in either black leggings, pants, or shorts. Proper shoes should be worn. No Crocs, flip flops, or bare feet. Please wear either Jazz shoes or tennis shoes.

  7. How many students will be chosen for the Colorguard team? There is no set number for the size of colorguard each year.
  8. Are there any camps or practices during the summer? Yes, This year we will be doing something different and we will be holding 4-5 Technique Practices. After this there will be a Guard camp and Band camp closer to school starting. All dates will be discussed after auditions.
