Stepping off on the right foot at the start of your season.

Are we ready?

I sure hope so.

Because here goes nothing.


Do you ever feel this way about starting contest season with your guard or dance team? I sure do! I put in a lot of work at the beginning to make sure everyone knows what is going on, and so that everything goes off without so much as a hitch. It can be stressful. It can be a big investment.


But it's also so thrilling, we keep coming back for more each and every season.


We've trained the students in the basics that we want them to be able to accomplish for the show.

We've taught the show.

We've collected the money.

We've placed the orders.

Everything is starting to come together slowly.

And next month we will see how well it works out.


Right now it's time to just sit back and relax before the season begins. It's what we guard instructors have to do in order to keep from getting ulcers later. It makes the world a better place for our students when things start heating up.


Good luck to all of you and yours this season. I hope you all learn great things and accomplish great tasks. I hope every one of you and your students grows from every experience.


Here we go.
