Winter Guard

Union Public Schools Winter Guard Program is comprised of three competitive groups spanning 8th-12th grade, and a non-competitive training group for 6th and 7th grade students in the District.  The high school program consists of two groups, competing at a local and national level, in Scholastic Open and Scholastic A class.  Then middle school programs consists of two groups as well, one being our 8th grade guard who compete locally, and our 6th and 7th grade program who train and perform for various events held alongside the competing guards.  In the winter season, we strive to educate our students further in the areas of dance, performance, and achievement through various pieces of equipment (flag, rifle, and saber).  We require no previous experience, and will teach all necessary skills that are required for our activity.  Each group meets as a class throughout the Spring Semester of school with a few rehearsals outside of normal class hours.

The Open Guard is currently the mutli-time state champion, and the Scholastic A Guard has multiple state championships in class.  Our 8th Grade Guard has been named State Champions twice in the last five years.
