Our Origin

Malachi Independent has become a force throughout the Rocky Mountain region since it’s inception in 2007. Since beginning with 5 dedicated members it has grown to encompass 4 competitive teams with 80+ members ranging in age from 6-51. As Malachi enters its fifteenth season they will floor a World Class team, A team and a minis . The World Class team emerged from the success Malachi Independent garnered in the open class division and after placing in the Top 10 at WGI World Championships in 2016 and 2017 the decision was made to move to the top echelon of competitive winter guard. 

The organization began to expand to include an A class team in 2016 and a Regional A class level in 2017. They added their Minis team in 2018 to incorporate training at the youngest and most beginner level. Each level has seen tremendous success both locally and nationally. The A team made WGI finals for the first time this past season with their program, “Dissolution”. The Regional A team or MIRA as they are called, has won back to back RMCGA division championships as well as winning the Las Vegas WGI regional in their class. The Minis team competes in the Middle School division and had an undefeated debut season.


Malachi Independent Winterguard is a color guard organization based in the Denver area. Each team competes at local competitions hosted by Rocky Mountain Color Guard Association and most teams attend international competitions provided by Winter Guard International. Malachi is under the direction of Jenn Carrasco.
