Spintronix Winter Guards

The Spintronix Color Guard NPO hosts two competitive winter guard teams. The first, Spintronix Indoor Guard (SIG for short) competes in the Independent Regional A class of the Mid-Continent Color Guard Association, and has won two state championships. The second, Spintronix World Indoor Guard (SWIG) competes in the Independent World class for both MCCGA and Winter Guard International. Both teams meet weekly each weekend from September through early April to train and rehearse.

Membership & auditions

Any performer interested in being a member of the Spintronix Indoor Guard will be accepted onto one of our teams providing they attend rehearsals, pay their fees, and meet the appropriate requirements for that team.

 

SIG Requirements:

  • Any male or female between the ages of 12-22 as of the championships date is eligible to be a member.

  • Online Clinic Registration (click button above)

SWIG Requirements:

  • Any male or female who is a minimum of 18 years of age on December 1 the year they are auditioning.

  • Online Clinic Registration (click button above)

  • Successful completion of the clinic training process and demonstration of advanced performance skills.

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.

Membership

Expectations

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.
