Welcome to OPHS 2017-18 Winter Guard. Making varsity or junior varsity is a testament to your skill and work ethic. Winter Guard is more demanding and intense than Colorguard. If the student misses three rehearsals (UNEXCUSED OR EXCUSED), that particular student may be removed from the squad at the Coach/Directors’ discretion. Successful Winter Guards rely heavily on individual practice outside of scheduled rehearsals/clinics, 100% participation, and attendance at ALL practices. If one person misses, the Squad will not be able to rehearse everything as needed and that rehearsal will be wasted. Obviously it is important to make all competition dates. Listed separately are scheduled Clinics and Competitions. If you cannot make a competition, then you will not be in the competing group. If you make the Varsity Squad but cannot make a competition, then you are subject to be a member of the Varsity or JV and your involvement in the squad will be one that can be easily removed from the routine.
