Lion Guard, a part of the Marching Band, is an art form consisting of dance and flag work. It is unique in that it combines athletic ability and musical talent. The focus is on teamwork and discipline and requires both mental and physical skill. The results are improvement in motor skills and mental sharpness. Lion Guard demands self control and teamwork while producing a musical art form for the aesthetic enjoyment of the audience and the glory of God. The Lion Guard participates in competitions with schools in our classification and also against much larger schools. Over the past 13 years of competing, the Briarwood Lion Guard has placed near the top in competitions and has, on numerous occasions, placed first in every class. Clinic and tryouts are held in the spring.
Fierte du Lion, winterguard, is an auditioned group that travels around the southeast from January through April competing in the Southeastern Color Guard Clinic. It also uses dance, flags, and weapons for our shows. This group competed in the Festival Region A class in 2013 and came in 1st place in championship competition over other guards from around Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Georgia.
