Surge Independent Color Guard is a volunteer-run organization based in Oaklyn, New Jersey. We have a working relationship with the High Voltage team in Haddon Heights, New Jersey.
We are proud to be a sponsored organization of the Oaklyn Municipal Alliance Youth Services Commission (OMAYSC) – focusing on activities to keep our children drug-free.
Surge Cadets Independent Color Guard
Surge Cadets Color Guard was formed in 2017 to promote creativity, sportsmanship, confidence building, and respect through the visual arts to youth in Oaklyn, New Jersey. Surge Cadets Color Guard is excited to welcome our youngest performers into the color guard world! Team goals include teaching the basics of color guard in a fun and supportive environment. Surge Cadets is open to those in grade 2 up to age 15, no matter experience or skill level. However, priority preference is given to those living in Oaklyn, NJ for a place on the team.
Surge 2.0 Independent Color Guard
Our JV team was formed in 2018 as a stepping-stone for our middle school aged members with more required commitment than our cadet team. Surge 2.0 competes in TIA and in MAIN tournaments. We pride ourselves on teaching more advanced skills in preparation for a future in Class A and Open guard. This group will also allow for students older than 15 who may not have the time or money to commit to an A guard to still learn, grow, and compete at a high level. This team is by audition with preference given to those living in Oaklyn, New Jersey and our immediate surrounding towns.
Surge Independent Color Guard
Our Class A team includes members ages 13-22. This team is by audition for anyone interested in working on advanced skills, regardless of hometown. We focus on practicing and improving important skills as well as mentoring our younger teams.
Surge Independent was formed in 2016 to provide an opportunity for local teens without a school sponsored team interested in the fun and competitive world of Color Guard.
