Sorry that word just fit in my head.

Do you get any sort of respect at your school for being in guard?

lol, our school respects our band and colorguard, unlike a lot of others.
maybe because guard and band ppl are in student council and homecoming and prom kings and queens

my school just doesn't accept the color guard but they mostly hate the band. they think the band's the hugest geeks ever and just think guard's useless and lazy...IF ONLY THEY KNEW HOW MUCH WE WORKED!

Respect? :? Hmmm...it's more like understanding than respect. Sure, at rallies they "boo" the guard and the band, but they're not horrible or anything. We have just as many cute guys and girls in band and flag as in cheer and football so the regular "band geek" steryotype is generally left alone...which is quite nice. :D

at our school, people who dont really know what guard is dont really care, but usually if they know, they have respect for all the hard work we put in

since im in an independent guard this year, people dont really know, or care. But last year at Ida Price (middle school) my friends and I, all guys, got teased a lot for being in guard. People still make fun of me occasionally because i "twirl flags, and guns, and swords." But I've learned to just ignore it

yeah, i think at least half of my school has no clue what colorguard is still. but as for the people that do know, i think were respected. the class officers usually ask some of the guard members to be in the homecoming skits, or other events. so that's cool, but some people still think its pointless or easy...they just don't get it i guess. :roll:

The only reason ROTC hates our guard is because theres only ROTC people in our guard. sad :(
