TCU is so excited to welcome Color Guard to our district! Known as the Sport of the Arts, color guard helps us see the music that you hear from the marching band. Using flags and other equipment, we spin, dance and show our audiences what music looks like. Students currently in grade 6 through 12 are invited to come try out this sport. No previous experience necessary, we will teach you everything you need to know! Each student will get their own flag and t-shirt as part of their registration fee.   Thursdays  3/04 - 4/29  4:00-5:30pm  Lonsdale Gym  $150  Register through TCU Community Ed
