Anyone that'll be attending the Hazleton Area High School, the Hazleton Area Career Center, the Hazleton Area Academy of Sciences, the Hazleton Area Arts and Humanities Academy, or the Hazleton Area Virtual Academy and/or is entering 9th grade next school year, the Hazleton Area Marching Cougars needs Color Guard members!
Color guard is all about flashy flags being moved and twirled, a bit of dance, and a bit of acting to put on a show right alongside the band during the half-time show or pre-game show at the Hazleton Area football games and some competitions.
If you're a dancer, you'll love it! If you're bored and have nothing to look forward to next school year join also! You don't need Any experience; you will be taught by The DCI Colts Color Guard Instructor and the Skyliner Drum & Bugle Corps instructor!
You'll perform in football games at halftime, in parades, and also compete with other bands and color guards! Not to mention, towards the end of the school year, we go on an out-of-state "Band Trip", Color Guard included as you are a part of the band as well.
IF YOU'RE INTERESTED (does not have to be set in stone!) email Joe Stefanko, the band director (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he'll give you the details!!
It would be ideal to contact him before July 25th (that is when band camp starts.) NOTE: You do not have to have Band on your schedule to be in Color Guard; its an after-school thing.
This is going to be a great year and we hope that you can join us! Female and males are welcome to apply!
