The guard and twirlers perform with the Pride during the football season. We also have performances and competitions in the spring semester. With the UND Guard, you have the opportunity to spin and perform all year!

We spin 5 ½ foot swing poles – depending on the skill level and interest of the group. Dance is also incorporated into the choreography.

Do not have a lot of dance or spinning experience? Not a problem! We work as a team so that everyone can get the basics down and we will work with you so that you are comfortable with the choreography.

By becoming a member of the guard you can get class credit as well! Just sign up for Marching/Athletic Band and attend band camp the week before classes start.

The goal of the UND Colorguard is to provide an opportunity for students to participate in an outstanding performance group. We are a unit that teaches teamwork and performance skills, as well as building confidence and self-esteem. We also have a lot of fun doing it!

We are a close-knit team that works hard to perform great! If you want to make new friends, get class credit for spinning and performing, and have fun then the University of North Dakota Colorguard is the perfect place for you!

  Want to join the Color Guard?
