About:

The Northwest High School Color Guard is directly tied to the Northwest Marching Knights.  The color guard provides a great deal of visual impact for the Marching Knights.  These students perform by spinning flags, rifles, sabers, and any other equipment that is deemed necessary for the design of the Marching Knights Competitive Show.  They perform at all Marching Knight Performances including Mid-States Band Association Sanctioned Events, Varsity Football games, community events, and fall pep assemblies.  This group travels to every 2-4 years.  In the past 12 years, we have traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, FL, Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH) and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Cleveland, OH).

The Northwest Marching Knights and Color Guard rehearse for 2 weeks in the summer (band camp), and Monday’s and Wednesday’s throughout the season.  Additional sectional rehearsals may be called if necessary.  The vast majority of our performances occur on Fridays (Football) and Saturdays (Competitions).
