DAYTON, OH, February 22, 2010 WGI Sport of the Arts has
established a new online service to provide education materials to color
guard and indoor drumline instructors. The service is offered free of
charge and can be accessed by simply registering for an account.
Individuals who join the WGI Instructor Registry
gain access to
educational materials such as interactive videos and articles about the
indoor marching arts activity. The articles, news and announcements
are geared toward those teaching color guard and percussion ensembles,
and are offered to all staff whether or not their ensembles attend WGI events.
"Educational resources on the indoor marching arts are very limited.
Many times, when WGI is attempting to communicate to the instructors
themselves, important information gets lost in the shuffle and never
makes it to the people who need it most," explained WGI Marketing
Director Bart Woodley. "The WGI Instructor Registry is an exciting new
way to provide tools and information directly to ensemble instructors."
Woodley stresses that all instructors are invited to sign up, even if
their groups do not participate in WGI events.
Instructors who register will receive a username and password. When
visiting WGI.org, use the "Site Login" located in the bottom
left corner of the site. Once logged in, the Instructor/Director news
and articles will be displayed on the "dashboard" and special Instructor
navigation options appear in the top right sidebar.
