Cadets Colorguard rehearsal at the Jan. 7-9 camp

Two days of optional sessions are now scheduled

When The Cadets return for rehearsal camp for the Jan. 7-9 camp weekend , the colorguard members who are NOT in winter guard, or … who are local to the area,  are  encouraged to attend as the instructional staff adds two days of optional sessions for guard performers, thereby allowing them to fine-tune their skills and technique during the off-season.

Customarily, the colorguard doesn’t return to rehearsals until the April camp. But those performers not involved in an indoor winter program, or those seeking to improve their body movement and equipment skills are encouraged to attend, said Cadets Assistant Director Justin Heimbecker. It’s also a great time for those still wanting to audition to come out, he added. Auditions will NOT occur until April (to fill the ensemble) but this is a great time to gain skills, insight and experience!

The camp is not mandatory, but it is suggested, Heimbecker said.

The Cadets return to Woodstown High School in Woodstown, N.J., on Jan. 7-9. Brass and percussion musicians are already scheduled for rehearsal. Colorguard performers can attend Saturday or Sunday sessions, or both!

The colorguard will follow schedule below: 

Saturday, January 8
2 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Movement class with Katie Hopkins  

7:30 p.m. - 11 p.m.
Equipment class with Bruno Zuccala, Greg Lagola and staff  

Sunday, January 9
9 a.m. - 10 a.m.
Physical training with corps  

10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Movement and Equipment  

1 p.m. - 2 p.m.
Cadets ensemble

2 p.m. - Dismissal 

Any guard person may arrive Friday or Saturday, you can attend one session or all sessions and the cost is only $25 per day or $40 for the weekend. 

Please note: This is a trial. If eight or more register to attend, we will go for it!
