Winter Guard Classification

Not sure how to classify your guard for this upcoming season?

MAC has designed a system which combines the WGI national class system with our own local classes for units who do not compete nationally. We will have two evaluation shows early in the season in which we ask that guards attending championships attend. Units will be classified using the following system after those shows. Units are always able to promote themselves as they see fit.

 

Classes of Competition

MAC believes in following the national standard set by WGI and will mirror their classes of competition for those units who compete nationally. MAC is also a local organization and we have made accommodations to those units not wishing to compete in WGI.

If you are performing in more than one WGI event during the season it is required that your class in MAC be the same as WGI.
