"I am here, and here is good."
In seven minutes, the performers warmed up their bodies and spun flag, rifle, and sabre; in five minutes, the Aztec Winter Guard delivered a performance that would rank them among WGI's top 20 Independent A teams, concluding an historic 10th season. However, without the 6 months of preparation, the season would surely have had a different outcome.
October marks the beginning of the winter guard season; as marching band continues in full swing, performers are already looking for their next opportunity for competition. The Aztec Winter Guards will host their auditions from October 28 - 29, from 8AM to 5PM. We encourage performers of any skill level to audition for our Independent A team, Independent Open team, or both.
Our Independent A Guard welcomes those who manage a busy life, whether it be school, work, or anything else, but still have a passion for performing. Because our rehearsals are only twice a week and on Saturdays before competition, our schedule can easily fit into your busy school and work schedule. We will only compete at local competitions in WCWG and WGASC, so dues will also be well under $1000, considerably more affordable in comparison to other fees. With a convenient schedule, low fees, and an amazing staff, it's the perfect opportunity to make SDSU your home!
Our Independent Open team will compete regionally and nationally in the WGI, WGASC, and WCWG circuits, attending 2 regionals and World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. Challenge yourself and improve your skills with higher tosses, fun partner work and tricks, and master your technique with our Independent Open team!
