Coppell High School will host Winter Guard International’s (WGI) Dallas Regional competition on February 18, 2017. Over 40 high school winter guard organizations from Texas to Mississippi will perform, including Coppell’s own varsity color guard team.
Winter Guard is an indoor pageantry activity that involves an array of equipment, movement, and skill. Flags, rifles, sabres and other props are utilized to bring music and themes to life while displaying technique, creativity, and expression. Competition is separated into six classes based on the complexity of the program and if the color guard is affiliated with a school (scholastic) or not (independent).
Tickets are $12 for prelims, and $15 for finals. A $24 combo prelims/finals ticket is also available at the box office on the day of the event. For more ticket and schedule information for this and all WGI events, please visit www.wgi.org.

The “Sport of the Arts” offers a unique blend of artistry and athleticism and is a leader in the pageantry/performance arts community.
