Somerville High School Winter Guard


About the Guard Groups

The Somerville High School Winter Guard is composed of two separate groups: the Scholastic World (SW) and the Scholastic Regional AA (SRAA), also known as the Performance Group (PG). 


The World Class guard competes at the highest level of scholastic competition and competes in three circuits: MAIN (Mid-Atlantic Indoor Network), USBands and WGI (Winter Guard International). 


We are two-time WGI WORLD CHAMPIONS (2012 Scholastic A and 2015 Scholastic Open). Watch performance here


The SRAA Performance Group only competes in MAIN and USBands competitions and is for students who cannot commit to the demanding World Class schedule. It is also a place where students can continue to improve on their skills.


Competition schedules for both groups can be found below.
