Aztec Color Guard
Color Guard / winter guard
The SDSU Color Guard and Winter Guard allow students to perfect their technique and expand their repertoire to include advanced skills in contemporary and stylized dance as well as in spinning flags, rifles, and sabres. The ensembles give performers in the San Diego area an opportunity to be part of an organization with a world class staff that truly believes in not only teaching students become amazing performers, but helping them mature into remarkable young adults. The group performs in tournaments and showcases throughout California while competing in the Winter Guard Association of Southern California (WGASC), West Coast Winter Guard (WCWG), and Winter Guard International (WGI) local and international circuits. Each year we travel to several regional competitions both in and outside of California and look forward to attending WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio, WGASC SoCal Championships, and WCWG West Coast Championships in Orange County, California.
By joining a team comprised of students representing all backgrounds, cultures, and collegiate levels, students graduate as more well-rounded individuals having learned the values of collaboration and diversity to accomplish a singular goal. This activity is commonly referred to as the "Sport of the Arts" which instills in each member a positive work ethic, increased self-esteem, and a healthy dose of confidence from performing in front of tens of thousands of spectators over the course of a season. Members of the SDSU Color Guard and Winter Guard have the added prestige of being ambassadors for San Diego State University through presenting their show in the hope of inspiring high school teens to get involved in this preforming art and attending the university.
