RED ZONE FAQs

Who is Red Zone for?

Anyone interested in improving their abilities! Any age is welcome, as well as any skill level. We have practice materials built for anyone for at home daily use.

How do I audition for the Colts?

Enter the Red Zone! Membership in the Colts begins in the Red Zone. The video evaluation is the first step of the audition, and completion of a private audition lesson is the next step. Positions are available in all sections. New students should anticipate at least one follow up lesson (a typical recall) necessary to earn a position. Please make sure your video submission and lesson demonstrate your strongest effort.

What positions are open in the 2021 Colts?

All positions in the 2021 Colts are open. Even with 2020 Colts members returning, we have positions available in all sections.

Can I attend a live event?

With uncertainty surrounding the timeline for in-person audition camps, our current plan is for only virtual activities through December 31. All initial videos and auditions should be completed by December 31, 2020.

Do I need to want to be a member of the Colts or Colt Cadets?

Any person of any age, with or without drum corps plans, can engage and improve through our Red Zone activities. Students planning to audition for Colts should be ages 15-21. Colt Cadets are generally 12-17 years of age.

What if the world gets worse in 2021?
