The Plainfield High School Indoor Performance Programs are available to students within the Plainfield Public Schools system who are looking to excel in the areas of artistry and physical fitness. Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion are considered "The Sport of the Arts" as they require intense creative development and emotional commitment, as well as the physical ability to complete a 5k run.
Students do not have to possess these abilities upon auditioning for the part, but will be trained by a highly skilled group of instructors over the course of five months. Aside from the physical and emotional skills that students will learn, our team spends time working on life skills - the every day stuff that students need to know about being successful in life upon graduation from high school. Students must apply for specific positions, go through an interview process, submit resumes and recommendations. We work leadership training through group exercises and team building. The students that participate in our program are required to maintain eligible grades and ultimately hold the top academic spots in their class.

This group is the highly competitive indoor group. They travel all over the New England area and New Jersey. Since its creation in 2012, the group has brought home back to back championships, one on a local level through the New England Scholastic Band Association (2012), and the other on a national level through the US Bands organization (2016, 2015, 2013).
