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 poles along with rifles –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!

The guard is also open to many different performance and competition opportunities. In spring 2011, the guard was able to travel down to Orlando, Florida for the Twirl Mania competition. There we placed 3rd in our parade performance, 5th in our group performance, as well as 1st and 2nd places in our member's solo routines. We look forward to many other performance and competition opportunities in the future.

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!
