Santa Clara Vanguard
Winter Guard

The Three-time World Champion Santa Clara Vanguard Winter Guard (SCVWG) is a competitive indoor color guard that travels and performs during the winter months each year. Although the guard spends most of their season competing in Northern California, in April each year they attend the Winter Guard International (WGI) Championships in Dayton, OH. In 2015 they won the Independent World Class Gold! The SCV Winter Guard won its first California Color Guard Circuit (CCGC) Championship in 1968, and has attained a number of additional CCGC titles since. WGI finalists every year, the SCVWG won Gold in 2009, 2011 and 2015, Silver in 2010, 2012 and 2014, and Bronze in 2013.
