Color Guard


The St. Ambrose University Color Guard is a place to refine your technique, learn new skills, and grow as an artist while training and performing with the Fighting Bee Band!

Our program marches flag, rifle, and sabre. The comprehensive training program and corresponding choreography weaves together elements of dance, weapons technique, and flag work.

The Fighting Bee Color Guard rehearses twice per week with an additional rehearsal on gameday at Brady Street Stadium. The guard rehearses indoors at the St. Ambrose Dome, a covered and heated practice complex.

The guard performs at all SAU home football games, local parades, exhibition performances, and special events throughout the Quad Cities area.

Growth: The SAUCG utilizes dance, flag, rifle and sabre in our base techniques. We appreciate every educational background, and use everyones past experiences as a springboard to strengthen and grow as an ensemble.

Respect: We show up to rehearsals with the consistent goal of progress. This goal can only be met in a culture based in respect. Respect for the activity, respect for yourself and respect for all members and staff.

Teamwork: Most importantly, the SAUCG is a team. We come together to lift each other up as artists and colleagues through support and encouragement.
