Color Guard

About Us

The Sullivan Color Guard proudly serves as a complement to the Sullivan Marching Redskins Band, directed by Mr. Shaun Schaefers. Each Marching Band season, the Sullivan Color Guard performs alongside the band to help provide a beautiful spectacle of entertainment, music, and unique marching choreography.

The Sullivan Color Guard is an award-winning guard team whose members are skilled in the use of dance, flag, marching, and rifle maneuvers. Tryouts for the Sullivan Color Guard occur every Spring semester. Guard members attend the 4th of July parade over the summer, summer Band Camp, summer Color Guard camp, the Homecoming pep rally and parade, home SOV football games, and a host of marching band competitions throughout the Marching Band season. The team is committed to establishing a tradition of excellence through the development of new skills, the perfection of choreography, and an emphasis on hard work and continual practice towards improvement.

Feel free to contact the instructors Mrs. Caitlin Martin, at martinc@sullivan.k12.il.us or Ms. Natalie Hoijer at hoijern@sullivan.k12.il.us.
