Color Guard & Winter Guard
The Guard is an auditioned extension of the band program at Onalaska High School. Students can participate in fall and winter guard at OHS. Students in the guard learn critical skills in the visual arts including dance, equipment, and teamwork! The winter portion of the season involves traveling to regional competitions of the North Star Circuit in the late winter to early spring. The guard typically practices Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the Fall and Winter. Students who participate in Guard are also members of the band program on wind or percussive instruments.

The Onalaska Winter Guard is proud to be in its 5th year as an organization. They Have performed for several home basketball events and will be traveling to 3 competitions. The winter guard would like to thank Sunshine Floral for sponsoring the winter guard prop and Patrick Strain for his help in bringing our vision to life. What makes a community stronger is its ability to come together and support others in times of need. The 2022 Onalaska Winter guard show "Every flower has its storm," portrays a community that learns through teamwork that a storm will not break them.
