ASU Sun Devil Colorguard

The ASU Sun Devil Colorguard is one of the most visible aspects of the ASU Sun Devil Marching Band. This select group of young men and women is chosen by audition in the spring for the following academic year.

The ASU Sun Devil Colorguard presents the visual story of the band’s half-time program through the use of flags, rifles, sabers, props and dance. As a member of the ASU Sun Devil Colorguard, you will get to experience “corps-style” choreography and benefit from instruction by some of the field’s leaders. The colorguard also competes in the WGAZ Winterguard circuit as well as WGI events through the ASU Winterguard program.
