It’s the time of year we get to recognize and appreciate the work and contribution of the senior members of our teams. Those at the end of one journey and the beginning of something exciting. We mark this celebration each year with Senior Recognition Medals. Like many of our processes this year, we have created a form to allow directors to order and pay for these medals online in advance with a credit card. This will allow you to avoid a wait at the Will Call window of the Box Office. This form also allows directors to place their order and then pay by school check or cash at Will Call. The important thing is to take this time to fill out the form NOW. Don’t wait. We have only ordered a limited quantity and you do not want your students to feel forgotten. If you have questions on Senior Medals please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow this link for the ORDER FORM
This year has seen an unprecedented number of new and returning teams. In fact, we had more teams add and return to the FFCC than we had in competition at our first five years of FFCC Championships. More than thirty teams in total. In general, this has been a very good thing. We are spreading more opportunities to more teams in more counties than any other color guard and percussion circuit in the country. It does, however, come with a price. [Read more…]
Early this afternoon all the prices and links were updated for the sale of Championships tickets. Advance sales only last a limited time so be certain to take advantage of the savings. You can find more information by clicking on the “Championships Banner” at the bottom of the FFCC Home Page.

Sportsmanship is defined as ethical, appropriate, polite, and fair behavior while participating in a game or athletic event. The ability to be gracious in victory and defeat is the mark of a true competitor.
Kevin Paulus was a founding Board member of the FFCC and the trademark of all his teams at Lemon Bay High School was their competitive drive. They were always a crowd favorite and in the heat of battle for top honors. What made Kevin’s teams stand out on and off the floor was their respect for their competitors. Whether his teams were first or last, they were always the first to congratulate the other teams and quick to offer help when needed. They also felt that part of being a good sportsman was being prepared and ready to compete. In Kevin’s honor, we created the Kevin Paulus Sportsmanship Award to recognize deserving teams.
Certainly there are many teams that have some of these great qualities but the Kevin Paulus Award should be reserved for those special teams that have them all. The FFCC depends on Team Directors to make nominations each year based on their personal experiences with their peers. This year we are making the nomination form available all year in an effort to make it easy for Directors to nominate teams during the season. When you experience those “outstanding moments of sportsmanship”, Directors may find the criteria for nomination and information on the award HERE to recognize and nominate those deserving teams.
