Our winter programs are available to students after marching season. Students do not have to be a part of percussion or guard during the fall to participate. This is a great way to try a new instrument or discipline. We compete in the SCPA (Southern Californian Percussion Alliance) and ADLA — American Drum Line Association where we proudly represent the Temecula Valley High School Golden Bears.

Winter Programs: Schedule
What We Do in Winter Programs
Winter Line Competitions
The winter drum line typically competes in ADLA competitions. In 2016, we performed in A Class, moving up to Open Class for semi-finals and championships.
Winter Guard Competitions
In some years, our winter guard performs alongside the drum line. Most years, however, they compete against other color guards directly. In 2016, our winter guard performed in the Winter Guard Association of Southern California (WGASG) / Marching Band Open Series (MBOS).
Our show, She Is, was a visual and musical journey of a young women trying to find herself again. Under Bobbi Cadena’s leadership, our ensemble went to the championships, putting in an amazing performance and earning their best score of the season: 81.93.
As winter gets closer, please check our schedule for details.
Like marching season, our winter programs are successful due to extensive practice. We will be practicing regularly once the season gets underway, typically after school and on Saturdays.
Please check the schedule regularly.
How These Programs are Funded
Our winter programs are funded separately from Marching Season.
• Direct donations and fundraising opportunities will be available for needed funds.
• The cost per student is similar to that of marching season (depends on the number of students participating).
This year, the projected per student cost for Winter Line is $ (TBD); for Winter Guard, it is $ (TBD). We ask that each family contribute financially via direct donations to the program or by participating in fundraising activities.
For your convenience, we’ve listed some financial contribution options below. Make the pledge and help us keep the music alive…
