Winter Guard International (WGI)

WGI Sport of the Arts is the world’s premier organization producing indoor color guard, percussion, and winds competitions.  As a non-profit youth organization, WGI also serves as the governing body for the indoor color guard, percussion, and winds activities. It is called the Sport of the Arts because it brings music to life through performance in a competitive format. Even with over 40 years of history, the sport continues to evolve and grow.  There were more than 33,000 participants at the regional level, and more than 16,000 participants at the Sport of the Arts World Championships.
