What is Colorguard???

Colorguard focuses on the visual enhancement of music through dance, flags, rifles, and sabers. You will make great friends and memories all while being involved in one of the largest organizations at Melbourne HS, The Pride of Mel-Hi Marching Band. We perform at all football games and in the Spring we compete as a winter guard, traveling to competitions across Central Florida and attending championships in Daytona Beach.

The Melbourne Sensations Colorguard program has earned many awards, maintained a history of Superior ratings at all FBA events, and have had several graduates continue their colorguard career with a college marching band or independent winterguard.  In 2007, the Melbourne Sensations Winter Guard became members of the Florida Federation of Colorguards Circuit (FFCC) and participated in their first Winter Guard International event in 2014.
