Color Guard Appearance Requirements: Scholastic (with the exception of Cadet), and
Independent Color Guard units MUST compete in a Field Day competition (one of the first two weekends of competition) and attend 2 additional weekends of competition (a weekend is defined as one or two performances per calendar weekend, the WGI Nashville Regional will be accepted as a circuit weekend) in order to qualify for circuit championships. Cadet Class color guards MUST appear by the 4th competitive weekend in order to qualify for circuit championships.
All groups attending SCGC Championships (except the Cadet class) must compete at one of the Field Day weekends. All units will compete in the class they registered for and then if necessary reclassification will be made by the Classification Committee throughout the 2015 season. The Classification Committee is made up of the Color Guard Coordinator, Chief Judge, Judging Staff, Unit Director, and one other Director/Instructor (not associated with the group or the class they possibly would be moved) will determine if a scholastic unit is competing in the appropriate class. The committee will reclassify scholastic units (up or down) as needed and will work in tandem with the promotion system. New for the 2015 season, promotions can/will take place up until the weekend before championships.
