I've decided that it's time to devote a blog to COLOR GUARD! :)
In color guard, there are three main types of “weapons.” Flags, Rifles, and Sabres.
Flags are the most basic of the three, then Rifles, then Sabres after that.
In color guard, there’s also a lot of terminology that people outside of color guard don’t understand. There’s also a lot of dance in color guard, so there’s all that terminology to learn as well.
There are a lot of different things to do while twirling a flag.
Cones (Stirs, there are many different names)
Single Spins, Double Spins
And many more
There are also a lot of different things to do while spinning a rifle.
Single, Double, Triple, Quad, Five, and for some, Six. These are all tosses that spin a different number of times in the air
There are also a lot of cool tricks that can be done and made up by the performer
