Lindbergh H.S. Winter Guard 

Students are able to audition to become a member of the Lindbergh H.S. Winter Guard, with tryouts typically held in late October/early November. Winter Guard is an extracurricular activity that practices outside of the regular school day, with the practice season starting in November and continuing through early April. Members use the elements of dance and various props including (but not limited to) flags, rifles and sabers to perform a specific show them chosen for the season. Winter Guard performs indoors on a gymnasium floor and competes at competitions both inside and outside the St. Louis area. State Championships are held each year in Springfield, MO (visit www.mccga.org for more info). A full calendar with practice schedule, competition events, and other activities will be provided to each member.

Registration Information

The historical cost for one student to participate in Winter Guard averages around $585/student for the four month season.  Due to a generous corporate sponsor contribution for the 2015-16 season, this fee has been reduced to $490/student.  The corporate sponsorship and fees cover uniform/prop costs ($210), competition fees/lodging ($125), and instruction costs ($250). Families may also participate with individual fundraising opportunities (i.e.:  Bandwiches, Giftcards, Plant Sales, etc.) throughout the school year to earn income to help offset their personal fees for Winter Guard.

Families can save $40/student by paying in full at registration. Or, you may choose the installment plan payment option with four equal $122.50 installment payments on a debit/credit card—the first due at registration and the other three will be billed to you each month thereafter.
