SFWGA offers a full range of color guard competitions,
from beginning Regional A ensembles to highly advanced
World ensembles. We welcome all scholastic groups from
public, charter and private schools, as well as independent
ensembles for home-schooled performers, performers whose
school does not field a winter color guard team, and for
collegiate and post-high school graduates.
The SFWGA is a Winter Guard International Circuit Partner,
and follows the WGI scoring philosophy.
SFWGA also supports the development of our Instructors
by providing a variety of uptraining seminars and clinics
taught by some of the most respected WGI judges and educators
in the Country.
