Texas Educational Colorguard Association
Building Better Guards for Better Bands

Registration for 2019 is now open!

A new season brings new opportunities. Our website has undergone a pretty substantial facelift, and should hopefully be much easier to use. As with any large set of changes there are bound to be a few bugs we missed, so if you see something that doesn't look quite right, let our webmaster know.

Existing directors, you should be able to use your login details from last season. New directors, please sign up first. From there, add any units you'd like to register and follow the prompts.

We can't wait to see you on the floor!

Members,

TECA is looking to the future and wanting to expand our Contest Staff. We are looking for Staff-in-training that could move up to official staff positions in the future and possibly the current season.

You will train to be a Contest Director, Tabulator, Sound or Timing and Penalties Judge.

Feel free to share with former students or parents! E-mail us if you are interested!

Thanks,

Jeremy Contreras
TECA President

FAQ

Q. Where can I find the contest information packet, schedule, or critique schedules?

Check out the Schedule for contest packets and attendance. Critique schedules and last minute adjustments will be posted to the homepage.

Q. Where can I update my Spiel Sheet?

Visit the Registration page and edit your unit. We pull spiel sheet data on the morning of each contest, so any changes you make will be announced at your next performance. (Pronunciation guides for tough names are awesome! Also we may edit the content for clarity and length, at the announcer's discretion.)

Q. Where can I view the circuit by-laws, contest rules, and timing requirements for my classification?

These and more can all be found at the Forms page.

Q. Where can I find judges recap sheets, panels, or the full WGI rulebook for each classification?

Head to the Judges area. You'll need to log in first.

Q. Can I advertise my services, or sell gently used items?

Advertisements may be placed on the Classifieds page. To place an ad, please contact TECA Webmaster Nathan Flynt.
