Announcing "Spin with the Eagles"
JOIN THE AWARD WINNING MILTON COLORGUARD FOR
SPIN WITH THE EAGLES!!!
Milton High School's Award-Winning Colorguard is hosting Spin with the Eagles on October 26th and 27th. Colorguard is the visual ensemble that performs with the marching band during football games and competitions. They learn and perform choreographed routines which involve spinning flags, sabres and rifles with precision dance and movement elements.
Spin with the Eagles is a mini camp specifically designed for grades K-8 to expose students to Colorguard performances. Participants will learn cheers and a spinning routine from our Colorguard. They will cheer with the band in the stands and perform on the football field during halftime. This is an excellent opportunity for students to see if they may want to pursue colorguard during their middle school and high school careers. It is also a lot of fun to hang out with the colorguard to cheer and perform during our homecoming game.
The registration fee for this event is $37. It includes two after-school practices with Milton’s colorguard instructor and team, Friday night dinner, and marching into the stadium before the game. The registration fee also includes a commemorative t-shirt they will wear during performance. The registration deadline for the Spin with the Eagles event is Friday, October 13, 2023.
