Kennedy Catholic Color guard
The Parade Guard is an all-volunteer section of the Kennedy Catholic Marching Band and is open to both female and male students wishing to participate. The Parade Guard serves as the visual extension of the marching band, utilizing choreographed flag and weapons manuals and military marching formations to the live music of the marching band. The Parade Guard leads the marching band in parades and stadium entrances, performs at halftime shows and participates in all marching band activities, i.e. Band Retreat, parades, athletic contests, banquets and trips.
During the winter months, the Color Guard converts to a competitive Winter Guard. The Kennedy Winter Guard is a member of the Northwest Pageantry Association (NWPA), a subsidiary of Winter Guard International (WGI), and competes against other winter guards from around the state. Winter Guard focuses more on a theatrical interpretation of music, emphasizing intermediate flag and weapons manuals, dance movement and showmanship to express an emotion or tell a story. The Winter Guard also attends NWPA sponsored clinics and camps, participate in additional fundraising activities and winter guard retreat.
