Davison Band & Orchestra Boosters

  Davison Winter Guard is an extension of the color guard that is part of the marching band in the fall.  Unlike traditional color guard, winter guard is performed indoors, usually in a gymnasium or an indoor arena. Performances make use of recorded music paired with dance moves, formations, and equipment that includes flag, rifle, and sabre. The winter guard commonly performs at judged competitions using criteria developed by Winter Guard International. Davison Winter Guard is a member of Michigan Color Guard Circuit.

  The winter guard typically has tryouts in early November, after which practices will begin. In January, there is usually participation in a field day event to make sure the team is on the right track according to their class requirements. The competition season runs through the end of March or early April, when the MCGC State Championships are scheduled.
