The indoor color guard, also known as Winter Guard, is a subsection of the very successful Houston High marching band. Often known as the Sport of the Arts, Winter Guard builds skills in dance, design, and choreography while presenting a sense of pageantry to its audience.
The indoor season technically begins in November after the marching season ends. Composition, however, for the indoor season actually goes on all year long. Once practices begin in November, the girls practice over 15 hours per week rehearsing their show in preparation for the competition season that runs from January through April. Winter Guard members commit over six weekends in the spring semester for competition.
The 16 members of the A guard performed in the MIA circuit in the 2014 season where they placed 1st and became state champions. Their show was titled The Hunt and can be previewed on You Tube
The 15 member B guard performed in the Memphis circuit in the 2014 season where they placed 1st overall. Their show was titled Carpe Diem.
