Color Guard

Welcome to the CCHS JROTC Color Guard! 

What is a Color Guard? The Color Guard is one of the most important tasks our cadets perform each year. Our ceremonial Color Guard teams are assigned to present the colors at many different events. In School Year 22-23, the Color Guard presented the colors at more than 40 events throughout Colorado. The Color Guard typically consists of 4 cadets, but can have as many as 5 cadets and as little as 3 cadets, but always consists of at least 2 rifle bearers and the American Flag. The cadet carrying the American flag commands the Color Guard. The cadet Command Sergeant Major is responsible for the training of the Color Guard and maintaining the unit and national colors.

The Color Guard can support a wide range of events including school events, district events, public events, sporting events, community events, parades, opening ceremonies, drill meets, graduation ceremonies and Veterans’ Day assemblies. The Color Guard aims to support as many events as possible each school year.

The Saber Team is the Tiger Battalion Honor Guard. They provide the ceremonial saber arc for events such as prom and homecoming. Cadets practice this skill during morning drill practices and in the specialty drill class which is offered as a block class for 2 quarters each school year.
