I'm surprised no one has mentioned logan yet. They are pretty much a prime example of what boys can do in colorguard. They won 10wgi championships and have won 9 wba marching championships. This past marching season they had close to 20 male guard members.

james logan was amazing this year though can't you see it as sexist because only the guys were on rifle?
i'm all in favor of guys in guard. they make it fun and the weapon section of guard shows w/ guys are so exciting :shock:
do other guards stalk the guys they see performing w/ other schools? cuz we do that frequently.... :)

not at all sexist.

it was just a feature that happened to be written for all guys.

i think it's just how mostly females are chosen for sabre features because girls are made to move more gracefully than males.

i think that's it's all about natural skill and ability, not about the idea that males are better because... they're not... right? lol jk

I just think it's the judgement of the director, my son spins both rifle and sabre in their show, so that's just what the director felt worked for that part of the show.

The notion of colorguards being all girls is quite ironic to me as traditionally colorguards were part of the military marching bands were all male.

This is exactly right. Unfortunately we've moved SO FAR away from the basis of our activity that those performing in it now have no knowledge of the history. It is important for us as instructors and educators to make sure our students are not only good performers, but have an understanding of the history of the activity so they can pass that information on as they grow to be educators and coaches. An appreciation of what has come before will always add to the experiences they are having now.

I can hear the moans now "...back when dirt was invented..."

By the way have we forgotten about Standley K. that was way back. He had the first guard that actually danced.

Thanks for the update. We seem to have missed the point. in 1969 Standley and some staff from Blue Devils stood around in the Seattle summer night and talked about the future of colorguard and pageantry in general and thus it has become; long before rules and title nine. I know because I was there.

I thought the point was "guys in colorguard" and why they belong there.

Second to that was to show you where Stan was previously mentioned to assure you that "we" haven't "forgotten" Stanley or his massive contributions to the activity.

Absolutely, thanks for the correction. The discussion brought back memories of early winterguards and how far they come. Standley ,as you have said, was a big part of that growth. So "guys in guard" seems to be a natural situation. Why not?
