The FFCC is seeking interested member teams to host FFCC sanctioned events and FFCC Elite Events for the 2017 season.
Hosting an FFCC event is a great fund raising opportunity for your organization and an excellent opportunity to bring the excitement of winter guard, winter percussion, and winds to your local community.
Elite events are co-sponsored events with the FFCC and include Regional A Premiere, AA/A/Open/World Class Premiere, Percussion/Winds Premiere, Percussion/Winds Focus East and Percussion/Winds Focus West.
FFCC sanctioned contests start in February and run through late March. The available dates can be found on the Event Calendar.
The deadline for completing the Event Host Application is August 24, 2016. Bids must be complete with a letter of availability from the facilities manager or principal, and show host fee of $200.00.
Elite Event Sponsors do not have a show host fee. However, they do have to have a signed letter of availability.
You can find the the Event Host Application HERE.

The Santa Fe High School Winterguard, from Alachua, Florida, reflects on what their season and championship experience means to them. Don’t forget, the FFCC annual meeting is only one week away! See you in Orlando!
Sunday, May 15, 2016 will be the date of the FFCC Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. This is the meeting where eligible voting delegates come to discuss and vote on proposals for changes and additions to the FFCC Policy and Procedure Manual. It’s also the time when delegates will nominate and elect new members to the Board of Officers to serve for the 2017 and 2018 terms. This year there are five seats available for nomination. People interested in running for a position are encouraged to bring a resume to distribute to delegates.
This year’s meeting will be held at the Hampton Inn and Suites Orlando Airport, beginning at 1:00 PM. More information and directions are available on the Event Calendar.
The proposals presented for consideration can be found HERE.
Please remember only registered voting delegates will be allowed to participate in any vote. Delegates must be registered forty-eight hours in advance of the meeting via the Team Profile Page.
Competing in the 2016 WGI World Championships seemed out of reach for us this year. We were fielding a team with just a handful of veterans, many of our families were struggling financially, and expectations were not exceptionally high. Once the season began, it became clear that this group of students did not intend to live in the shadows of their predecessors, and worked hard to build the skills they needed to compete, as well as raise the funds to allow everyone to attend. With the help of hard working students and parents, the generosity of sponsors, and the pooling of resources with other teams, we were able to return to Dayton this year after an amazing season in the FFCC. Apopka junior, Evelyn Paguada, narrated this short video to share the experience of our 2016 season with you. Thank you to all of our family, friends, and FFCC teams who supported us throughout the season. We hope you enjoy our journey!
