USA Color Guard: Information and Auditions
About the USA Color Guard
No other performing unit can add the color, motion, and field coverage provided by
a color guard. The USA Jaguar Marching Band seeks a group of dynamic performing men
and women who can consistently provide these elements. Auditions for the 2019 USA Color Guard will take place in an all-day event held on
the USA campus on April 13, 2019.
Students must be fully admitted to the University in order to audition, and must be full-time students to participate in the Color Guard. Also, students
may not exceed age 28 as of August 1, 2019.
The USA Color Guard rehearses M-F from 4:00-6:00PM during the fall semester. All
members of the USA Color Guard must enroll in the University Marching Band Course
(MUO 130). Each member of the JMB Color Guard receives a scholarship for their participation
and all costs for equipment and travel are covered by the university.
