4/21/2016: Keep up to date with our project. We will post updates here. Check back soon to see how we’re doing.
The Dwyer Color Guard program spends the summer and fall with the marching band preparing a show that we perform at football games and competitions. In the past years, our team has both grown and improved, receiving ratings of excellence. On top of that, we have also re-established our winter guard team. This is solely the color guard performing inside at competitions throughout South Florida in the winter and early spring. This program ended at Dwyer in 2011, and returned in 2015. In the two years that we have competed again, the winter guard team has received superiors, as well as earning third and second place awards. This upcoming 2016 – 2017 year, we are planning to make this program even bigger, stronger, and better! Our informational camps/auditions are May 26th and 27th in the band room from 5-7pm!
We utilize varies kinds of flags, wooden rifles, and metal sabres. All of these pieces of equipment are expensive, and most of ours is old and damaged. We are in desperate need of more rifles and sabres. Without them, we cannot allow our hardworking and dedicated students to spin on the weapon line. In addition, we need to purchase a new mat for our winter guard season. The current mat we utilize is over five years old, and due to many holes is no longer safe or usable. In order to compete, every team needs to have one of these mats in order to protect the gym floors and display their show. These mats cost between 1,000 – 2,000 dollars.
Our students do many fundraisers over the summer and throughout the school year. Every member of the team is required to pay a fair share fee that usually totals to a few hundred dollars. However, it is still difficult for many of these students to pay these fees. The Dwyer Band and Color Guard does not turn anyone away because of their financial difficulties. Every penny fundraised will go to a good cause and allow these students to continue to be a part of this team. Thank you!
