Color Guard Uniform Information

If purchasing any of the required uniform items is a financial hardship, contact Mr. Bishop or Mr. Trimble and the fees will be confidentially waived.

The Fall Tunic (Top half of the Color Guard Fall uniform) is provided to each student by the Council Rock Band Parents Association as well as an insulated raincoat. During Mini Camp in June your student will be measured to help in sizing her uniform. During August band camp the Fall Tunic will be distributed. The Fall Tunic and rain coat will stay in the band room at all times. Like participants in other organizations in the Council Rock School District, such as orchestra, choir, and sports teams, our guard members and their parents will be asked to sign a Uniform and Equipment Agreement outlining their responsibilities for the Color Guard uniform. A copy of this agreement can be found in this packet. Students and parents should take the time to thoroughly read through the agreement.

In addition to the Fall uniform, the Color Guard also have a summer uniform which consists of black capri leggings and a navy-blue polo shirt with the CRNMB logo. This uniform is worn in warm weather during football season and for the Memorial Day Parade. Each guard member must purchase the polo shirt from kampusklothes.com between June 21 and July 1, 2018. Students will have an opportunity to try on polo shirts and samples of the black capri leggings during Mini Camp in June to determine their correct sizes. Please be sure your student takes advantage of this opportunity. All sales are final, and orders cannot be placed after the deadline. More details about the summer uniform and ordering can be found in this packet. The black capri leggings are a new addition to the  summer uniform for the Color Guard and Mrs. Steyn will order them directly from Kampus Klothes. Payment of the black capri leggings is due when the order is placed. Pricing for the black capri leggings can be found in the section titled Color Guard Uniform Distribution.

In addition to the above summer uniform, guard members must also purchase one pair of black “Starlite 2” guard shoes, which are worn with the fall uniform and summer uniform. During Mini Band Camp in June, the students will have the opportunity to try on the guard shoes and order. Payment is due when the order is placed. Pricing for the black Starlite 2 guard shoes can be found in the section titled Color Guard Uniform Distribution.

Guard members need to purchase personalized track suits (pants and jacket). During Mini Band Camp in June the students will have the opportunity to try on samples of the track suit pants and track jacket that Mrs. Steyn will order directly from Kampus Klothes. Payment is due when the order is placed. Pricing for the personalized track suit pants and jacket can be found in the section titled Color Guard Uniform Distribution.

Guard members who have rifles and sabers assigned to them will need nude colored talon fingerless gloves. During August Band Camp, the students will have the opportunity to try on the gloves and order. Payment is due when the order is placed. Pricing for the gloves can be found in the section titled Color Guard Uniform Distribution.

Your student will need solid black ankle socks with no visible logos. These socks are worn with both uniforms and students will provide their own. We recommend buying at least two pairs. Finally, please be sure students’ names are clearly written in the guard shoes, polo shirts, track suit pants and gloves. Remember that the guard shoes should be cleaned before every performance.

Be sure that the summer uniform polo shirt and black capri leggings are clean and wrinkle-free, ready to be worn whenever Mr. Bishop or Mr. Trimble asks for this uniform. Please direct your questions to Judene Steyn (judenesteyn@outlook.com; 609-647-5169).

Thank you for your support and assistance in helping our band look awesome!!
Sincerely,
Judene Steyn
