The Washington Colorguard!

Program Coordinator: Brian Cyr, Holly DeFelice (Maloney Head Coach)
Coaches: Devin Murphy, Olivia Murphy

Middle School Colorguard is our newest and biggest guard group! This group practices at Washington Middle School one night a week.

Due to COVID-19, we have adopted strict safety guidelines and have worked with local heath officials in order to ensure that our members are safe. 

No prior experience is needed and there is no cost to join. Students from Washington Middle School in grades 6-8 are welcome to join this group. This a great way to learn a new sport, learn dance, coordination and technical development and work with a great group of students. Students will perform at exhibition event in the spring. 

This program is sponsored by the Maloney High School Marching Band and Colorguard Programs.
