College Station High School supports a very active and growing Color Guard program.

The Color Guard, known as the "sport of the arts", is one of the fastest growing activities in today's high schools. It is a high-energy sport that advances students into a new area of performing and visual arts, including dance, gymnastics, theater, acrobatics, equipment manipulation (including flags, rifles, sabers and other props), and visual color. A variety of dance idioms are incorporated, including ballet, jazz, and modern styles.

The College Station High School Color Guard performs and competes with the marching band in the fall season and in the winter/spring season, they compete solo as a visual ensemble in an indoor setting. All students at CSHS are eligible to audition for winter guard.

About Color Guard:

Modern color guard has evolved over the years into a form of entertainment that's a form of dance theater. It uses props, along with movement, to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the show. The colorguard is traditionally the visual representation of the music. Modern color guards use flags, sabres, rifles, batons, swing flags, airblades, and a few other pieces of equipment, as well as a mix of ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary modern dance. The purpose of the color guard is to interpret the music that the marching band is playing via the synchronized spinning of flags, sabres, rifles, or through dance. The color guard uses different colors and styles of flags to enhance the visual effect of the marching band as a whole.

About Winter Guard:

Winter Guard is similar to outdoor color guard, except the performances are indoors on gymnasium floors from January to April. The traditional marching band music heard during fall season is replaced with a recording of various musical genres. The gymnasium floor typically is covered by an individually designed tarp (called a floor mat or floor by members) that generally reflects the show being performed on it. The members often perform barefoot, but wearing jazz shoes or modern dance shoes is also a common practice. There are several ways to compete through indoor such as TCGC (Texas Color Guard Circuit), WGI (Winter Guard International), and many more.
