South Caldwell Fall & Winter Guard
 
The South Caldwell Winter Guard is a competitive unit of the Carolina Winter Ensemble Association (CWEA).  The program runs from November - March, and expects the highest commitment of it's members.

Our program has grown over the years, and currently offers two high school winter guards ("Elite" & "Elect"), as well as two middle school winter guards ("Competition Cadet", and "Junior Cadets").

All groups rehearse twice a week at scheduled times.  We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Baton Elementary School & Sawmills Elementary School - who we could not function without their help!
