Winter Guard


Santa Teresa Winter Guard is a competitive performing arts program of Santa Teresa High School.

It is an after school program sponsored by STMAA from December-April.  This program is open to returning and new color guard members (by audition).  This competitive ensemble competes at winter guard shows performing a custom show (with music, costumes, flags etc,) through their season.  There is additional fundraising and funding required for this program.  Participation in winter guard, while encouraged, is not required for color guard members.

Our mission is to strive to be the best in excellence, accuracy, creativity, and performance, that each individual can be, to come together to thoroughly entertain audiences in the bay area.
