Mountain Ridge has an award winning color guard and winter guard program with 6 state championship titles! Both winter guard and color guard involve 4 main elements of performance: Flag, Rifle, Sabre, and Dance.
Color guard takes place in the fall and is the visual accompaniment to the marching band. Students sign up for color guard in May for the following school year. The season runs from August through November. (Additional students can be added as alternates up through mid-September).
Winter guard runs from December through March. Students will need to attend an after school spin clinic in late November to join. We run 2 teams: JV and Varsity. Winter guard takes place indoors without the band and is our own season where we travel and compete throughout AZ and California.
Both activities are no-cut activities on our campus. Students interested in joining either club or both should reach out to Ms Eng - Cari.Eng@dvusd.org
