Membership & Registration Fees

Name Amount Description
CWEA Membership Fee $625.00 Groups regularly participating with CWEA are required to pay an annual membership fee. CWEA members are able to attend an unlimited number of events during the competitive season, including CWEA Championships. Your membership fee entitles you to receive copies of our scoring systems, handbooks, policies & procedures and more. It also entitles you to submit rule proposals and vote in general membership meetings.
Single-Entry (Non-Member) Fee $200.00 Groups wishing to participate in events as a non-member organization may do so at the per-event rate. Non-member groups will have access to CWEA scoring systems, handbooks, policies & procedures and more. Non-member organizations are ineligible to submit rule proposals or vote in general membership meetings. Additionally, non-member organizations are ineligible to participate in CWEA Circuit Championships events.

Refund Policy

Should you need to request a refund for your membership fees, you must send your request in writing to the CWEA Treasurer ([email protected]). All refund requests are at the discretion of CWEA, and require the approval of the President. Please note, if a refund request is approved, only the membership fee portion of the transaction will be refunded. All fees (late fees, convenience fees, processing fees, etc.) are non-refundable.

All requests for refunds received prior to December 31 of the current competitive season will be issued in the same manner in which they were received. Refund requests received on or after January 1 of the current competitive season will be issued as an account credit. Account credits will expire after one year from the date of issue. Refund requests received after the first event closing date of the current competitive season will be denied.

Classification Selection

For the 2022 season, the Board of Directors approved a policy change allowing for groups to choose which classification best suits the skill sets and achievements of their performers. At Premieres, the CWEA Classifications Committee will review groups as needed to ensure groups are appropriately classified. Non-Member Groups: Per CWEA Policy, all non-member color guard groups must compete in Scholastic 3A or above.

Mentorship Program

For the 2022 season, we are excited to implement the CWEA Mentorship Program! Groups can choose to be assigned a mentor during registration who will communicate with them throughout the season and help answer questions as they come up. Mentors serve as a great resource for new groups who may not be familiar with CWEA and who would like to have an additional resource to support them!

Registration Instructions

There are two parts to the registration process: Group Registration and Event/Show Selection. To register for the upcoming season, please follow these instructions. Should you have any questions along the way, please contact [email protected] for assistance.
