In 2015, Winter Guard International created its first ever WGI Winds Circuit. STRYKE jumped on the opportunity to impact more students in the South Florida Community and created STRYKE Wynds (SW). Under the direction of Eric Dunn and Will Smith, the wind ensemble provides members with the highest quality instruction in South Florida. They make it their mission to help each member develop their fundamental technique throughout the course of the season. At the end of the 2015 season, SW earned the WGI Winds Open Class Silver Medal. This year, Wynds captured gold at the 2016 WGI Winds Championships as well as the coveted Fan Favorite Award.
