Instructional Clinics, open to all grades 9-12, are held in late May for the Marching Band season of the following fall. Rehearsals are held during the summer and throughout the fall in conjunction with the Marching Band. The Color Guard performs precision flag drills with the Marching Band at all football games, in addition to the Memorial Day Parade.
The Northern Valley Winter Guard is a combined activity between both Northern Valley Demarest and Old Tappan. Students in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to participate. Students have the opportunity to perform in a competitive group where they learn how to dance, spin flags and other Color Guard equipment. Rehearsals are twice a week throughout the year and competitions are on the weekends throughout the winter season.
