The UNCP Colorguard is a part of the "Spirit of the Carolinas" Marching Band and has the same rehearsal schedule. The colorguard does contemporary flag and weapon work for the halftime show, and more traditional routines during pre-game.
Colorguard members must have previous experience in high school colorguard and/or winterguard, and must audition for the staff. In-person auditions during the schedule audition day are preferred, but video submissions may be accepted on a case-by-case basis for students living too far away or those accepted to UNCP later than the audition. The decision to accept video auditions are solely up to Dr. Alsop and the colorguard director.
All 2021 colorguard auditions will be done via video due to COVID-19. For more information, click here.
