We loved watching your entries into our Color Guard Quarantine competition! It was hard to choose, because we really wanted to reward everyone’s creativity and hard work. A list of 1st place winners and all participants are listed here: http://surgecolorguard.org/color-guard-quarantine-competition/2020-color-guard-quarantine-entries/
We will update that page with links to videos as soon as we get permission from parents to share, so check back often! You can also search YouTube for the hashtag #CGQ2020
As an Independent team without our own gym, we normally would be unable to host our own show. Now that we are all in quarantine and the official tournament season was canceled, we decided to find a way to bring a championship to our peers. So, we’re “hosting” our very first “show”! Performers in grades 1-8 are invited to submit a solo performance to the 2020 Color Guard Quarantine Championship! We’ll have a friendly competition, judged by unbiased members of various WGI teams, while still following all social distancing protocols to combat COVID-19. We want you to have fun, practice your skills, cheer each other on, share your favorite entries, and remember what a great community of people you can look forward to seeing again next season.

We are sad to learn both the M.A.I.N. & TIA indoor seasons were both canceled, including championships, due to an abundance of caution regarding COVID19. We add parts each week so our performances are always “new”, and we’re disappointed we didn’t get to show our fans and fellow athletes the final product. However, we understand it’s more important to be sure our families, friends, and communities stay healthy.
We will continue to highlight our wonderful sponsors and you can be sure you’ll see us in our team t-shirts all around town. Our volunteers are hopeful we’ll figure out a way to perform for you all one last time. Fingers crossed!
Surge, Surge Cadets & Surge 2.0
Due to COVID-19 precautions, the M.A.I.N. Hatboro competition scheduled for 3/14/20 has been cancelled. Additionally, WGI has suspended all remaining events, including their World Championship usually attended by our A level team. We at Surge are working on adding one or two additional performances to our schedule to make up for the possibility of more cancellations. Remember to wash your hands and keep your fingers crossed for healthy teams!
Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors for the 2020 season! Visit them all and let them know you appreciate them, too! http://surgecolorguard.org/sponsors/
Our 2020 season starts with a wonderful showing at Spring Ford PA in the M.A.I.N. circuit. Surge 2.0 took home 1st place in the Independent Junior division. Surge Cadets, since MAIN does not have a cadet level division, took home 3rd place in the Independent Junior division. We are incredibly proud of the continued effort and sportsmanship of our teams. Our Surge Cadets are learning important tournament skills and having fun while getting to spend more time with Surge 2.0 this year. We work best when we’re together!
We’re looking forward to “Big” Surge’s performance at North Penn on February 1st!
The Surge Cadets & Surge 2.0 T-Shirt Sponsorship Program is now in swing! Please consider donating to our organization. Your donation helps us keep costs low to families while still providing beautiful costumes & props, as well as team tournament fees and practice space rentals. Without our supporters we could not bring this sport of the arts to so many talented children! Details can be found here:
