A Little About Us...

The Southern Association for Performance Arts, or SAPA, is an organization based in the metro Atlanta area that sponsors competitive and educational events for Winter Guard (indoor Color Guard) units from Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee.  In its first ten years of existence, SAPA also hosted Indoor Marching Percussion and Concert Percussion events, as well as two years of Winds (indoor percussion and horns).  SAPA offers a variety of competitive Color Guard levels ranging from cadet units to world class units and adheres to all Winter Guard International (WGI) rules and policies, in addition to SAPA's own policies and procedures.  The contests are judged by both local and national judges trained to use WGI’s adjudication criteria.  The season events begin in January and culminate with circuit championships in April.
