We’re proud of the Doherty Winter Guard Program a place where students can thrive and make the most of their talents. Every year, we gladly welcome creative and passionate students from around D-11 and Colorado Springs.
We have a strong tradition of providing a positive learning experience with the thrill of competition. Our members have the opportunity to learn life skills, such as hard work, dedication, self-discipline, self-motivation, group dynamics, and teamwork. As the individual learns and masters their responsibility, the whole team shares in the accomplishments.
That is what we have here at Doherty; a team. However, the competitive focus is not on winning, it is on the product. One of our sayings goes: Be better. Better than yesterday, better than last week, better than last year. With the focus put on the product and improvement, students can enjoy the process of learning, whether it is in competitions, in the basketball stands, or in the classroom. However, we are constantly pushing to see just how much improvement we can get!
Whether we are spending hours and hours practicing, participating in fundraisers, going to competitions, or just hanging out, there is a sense of loyalty to the program. Not only do we have great guard students, we have great young men and women that are interested in being a part of something special.
