FBA Spinning Eagles


First Baptist Academy is proud to be one of only two private Christian schools in our area with a winterguard program. Unlike the traditional color guard, which is linked to a marching band program, winterguard is performed indoors. Performances are choreographed to music and local schools compete against each other. FBA competed this past season in the East Tennessee Performing Arts Association. 

Over the past five seasons, FBA’s winterguard, the Spinning Eagles, have grown from noncompetitive status with only two members, to competitive status with twenty girls and two teams! Our varsity team is called Imperial Spinning Eagles and features girls in 7th-12th grade. Our junior varsity team is called Regal Spinning Eagles and features girls in 2nd-6th grade. The goal of our program is to embrace Mathew 28:19. We want to go into the unchartered waters of Christian schools and take the Gospel with us! This past season, our Imperial show was "Fireproof," and our Regal show was "Followers." 

How can you support our Spinning Eagles? Please be in prayer for our shows and the hearts that God has planned to touch through our performances. Also, please pray for the hearts of the sweet girls who will be performing in front of large crowds throughout the season. You can also support us by attending our home debut, competitions and home showcase!
