Merritt Academy Winterguard Competitive Team 2017-2018

In a quest to offer as many extracurricular activities as possible Merritt Academy as an opportunity to start a Winterguard Competitive team next school year.  We will be having a sign up at lunch next week, April 17th-21st,  to gauge the interest in this new team.  Any current 5th -11th grade student can sign up for this.  

Winterguard is a competitive sport that uses dance, flags, mock rifles, and sabres to interpret music. Performers learn choreography, flag work, and staging, then travel the state of Michigan competing against other teams. No experience is necessary, though a background in dance is beneficial.
