Membership & auditions
Any performer interested in being a member of the Spintronix Indoor Guard will be accepted onto one of our teams providing they complete their paperwork, attend rehearsals, pay their fees, and meet the appropriate requirements for that team. For our full policies, see our membership handbook (linked below).
Anyone between the ages of 12-22 as of April 1 of the upcoming year is eligible to be a member.
Online Audition Registration (click button above)
Previous performance experience is preferred, but not required.
SIG is a non-discriminatory organization and while we encourage the participation of students of all backgrounds, we strongly recommend that students not audition if they have severe medical issues as to the very physical nature of the activity.
Attendance at all SIG rehearsals and performances is mandatory for all members. Even if you are working, attending school, or having family functions, one must understand that you are making a season-long commitment to be a performer with Spintronix. Time management of your education, family, and social life must allow you to dedicate the required weekends to Spintronix. In the past, some excuses have been granted in VERY RARE OCCURRENCES for family emergencies or school programs worth a grade. If you have prior commitments that may interfere with the Spintronix schedule, you should reconsider your membership for a later season.
Any middle or high school student who participates with the SIG may only do so if their school does not provide a competitive winter guard program. Those students whose schools have a competitive program must present written permission from their school's band director and athletic administrator to participate in our independent competitive organization.
Upon arrival at the first clinic, potential members will be provided with a membership handbook that further outlines expectations and requirements of membership along with a legally binding contract to be signed before membership can be granted.
