The Florida Federation of Colorguards Circuit (FFCC) offers a competitive outlet during winter for color guard, indoor marching percussion and concert percussion teams and Winds. Our competitive season begins in January and culminates in our Circuit Championships in early April.
The FFCC offers a variety of competitive classes ranging from the first year unit to the seasoned competitor. Our contests follow the rules and criteria of Winter Guard International (WGI) and are judged by both local and national judges trained to use WGI’s adjudication criteria.
At regular season contests:
Performance order for regular season events is organized in the following blocks:
- Guest teams
- FFCC Member Teams registered after November 30.
- FFCC Member Teams registered and paid after the Initial Membership Meeting and before December 1.
- FFCC Member Teams registered and paid at the Initial Membership Meeting.
Within each FFCC Member block, the order of performance is determined by a computer-generated random draw. Guest teams perform in reverse order of date of registration.
The random draw is done immediately following the close of registration for a show, at 11:59 PM on the Wednesday ten days prior to the event.
At FFCC Championships:
All random draws are done without the priority blocks used in regular-season contests.
For classes of nine or more teams, the class will be divided into thirds based on scores received at FFCC contests using the Seeding Formula.
For classes with 16 or more entrants, separate divisions will be created for the Circuit Championships Contest. Teams will be assigned divisions based on their ranking in the final championships seeding order with an alternating assignment pattern (i.e. odd number rankings in one division, even number rankings in the other). Random draws will take place after divisional assignments.
Future FFCC Championships Dates at the Daytona Beach Ocean Center
*Dates are based on WGI World Championships released dates, holidays, and facility availability and are subject to change.
If your team membership changes during the season and you add new performers, you must update your roster online or your new performers will not be allowed to perform.
Contact the FFCC Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Secretary will let you know when your profile has been updated so that you may delete the current roster and upload a new roster.
The Team Check-in form used at contests is prepared early in the week based on numbers available at the time. If you are changing your roster during the week of a contest which you are attending, bring the roster document with you and see an FFCC Board Member at the show. (You will still need to update it online.)
All are available online. Recaps and summary sheets are published after scores are announced. Judges’ commentary is available as soon as it is uploaded by our digital technician.
These are only available when a team director has logged into the ffcc.org website. From the account page, select Event Management. There you will find links to Recaps, Summary Sheets, and Judges Tapes.
To hear the Judges Commentary, select the event from the pull down menu, then click “Listen”. The commentary files which have been uploaded will appear, identified by the judge’s name.
Play the file using the embedded player, or click on the “down arrow” to download the file to your computer or device.
FFCC Member Teams may enter the class of their choice.
Guest Teams may enter the class of their choice with the exception of Colorguard Class B (B), Colorguard Scholastic Class AAA (SAAA), and Percussion Scholastic Marching Class AA (PSAA). This applies to a guest team’s first FFCC appearance of the season. If a team is entering other contests in the season, the judges at their first show will classify the team for future contests, including B, SAAA, or PSAA.
Both Colorguard and Percussion guest teams may enter the Evaluation Class. This is a non-competitive class where the judges’ score is converted to a word rating similar to FBA.
Guest team entry fees are $250 per show
