Walton Junior RAIDER Guard FAQ

What is Color Guard?

The Color Guard is a part of the marching band in the Fall, which is the largest student organization on the Walton Campus. During December through April, the Winter Guard performs competitively against other high school Winter Guard teams.


As a Guard member, you work with flags, rifles, recorded music and play characters.

What is the Junior Raider Guard Program?

The program is designed to get you started in Guard before you get to high school! We teach you some of the basics to help you train for the fall marching band once you get to Walton. You will learn basic Guard techniques, including warmups, spinning/tossing flags, and dance moves.


When and Where does the Junior Raider Guard practice?

Thursday evenings from 5:15-7:30PM in the Dodgen Gym, with a few exceptions. The Walton Varsity Guard practices during the same time, so the Junior Guard gets sneak peeks of the award-winning Walton Varsity Guard team.



Is there a uniform required?

No uniform is required. Please wear comfortable clothes, leggings (something you can move around in). Sturdy athletic sneakers are suggested.


Are there any limitations to who can join the Junior Guard?

No! Bring a friend - girls and boys welcome!
