5 Signs That Mean You've Made It In Colorguard

1. Band tans

Getting sock tans become into a competition of who has the worst tan, whether it be from just standing or doing tosses. These band tans will be with you for the rest of the season. Might as well try to win the competition and enjoy them.

2. Bruises and injuries

When you go the doctor and they say you need to stay out for a couple of weeks, you don't. Whether it be from a swollen ankle to a concussion, you still show up to practice. Even if it is just to watch your teammates and try to get in every once in a while, you're committed.

3. Counting isn't just 1, 2, 3

When you fear counting in front of anyone other than your teammates because you know you count defiantly. Counting becomes into a set of sixteen. Nothing more and nothing less.

4. Dropping becomes your worst fear

Nothing beats horror more than doing a six and dropping it. Having mini heart attacks becomes routine. A rifle becomes your baby, don't deny it.

5. When your silk smells

Getting show silks and a month later it smells like sweat and tears. Spinning happens at any day and during any type of weather.

But at the end of the day color guard has become your home. You know you love Color Guard because of how much it has truly changed you as a person mentally and physically. You wouldn't trade it for the world.
