Looking Ahead to Seminole and Fleming Island
Coming fresh off an exciting day for the Orlando area color guards at Cypress Creek, the FFCC moves this week to Tampa and Jacksonville as traditional shows at Seminole High School and Fleming Island High School take center stage. Here are some things to look for at both events as over 80 FFCC ensembles take to the floor this weekend:
- The Cadet ensembles from Liberty Middle School, Seminole Middle School, and Northside Christian School will meet again. All 3 teams are having successful seasons and represent that the future is bright for color guard in Florida.
- Weeki Wachee High School makes their first appearance in the AA class after being promoted out of AAA. This change also represents a sheet change for Weeki, as they now find themselves being evaluated on the National A class criteria that is the foundation of AA.
- 9 percussion units make the trek to Seminole to compete again, one week after the Percussion Focus West show. Though seeding for Championships is already set, these ensembles will look for additional feedback to improve their programs over the next 4 weeks.
At Fleming Island:
- In the Winds Independent World Division, Project Arts makes an appearance at this show. The spectators at Fleming Island will get a first-hand look at this new and exciting activity in the FFCC.
- A full complement of 12 ensembles will compete in the Class B division. For many of the teams this performance represents their final FFCC performance of the season.
- Nease High School appears at Fleming Island in the Scholastic World class. Coming off a strong showing at the WGI Tampa Regional, Nease’s performance will be a definite treat for the crowd at Fleming Island.
