Founded in 1955, The Spartans are one of the most respected and established organizations in the drum corps activity. Our organization has an outstanding record in promoting youth involvement and participation, having attained multiple Drum Corps International gold medals. The corps is a five-time winner of the DCI Open Class gold medal (1997, 1998, 2004, 2005, and 2007).
The Spartans are a community-based organization. We are not affiliated with any school or government-sponsored group. Our organization is run by a dedicated group of volunteer parents and a professional teaching staff who work in close harmony with all members to create and maintain a proud, responsible youth organization.
Our corps was founded by Albert Laflamme as a way to keep at-risk youth off of the streets. Today, the corps is run by Albert’s grandson, Paul G. Laflamme Jr.
Our staff includes some of the best drum corps educators in the world. We have a team of talented instructors with experience playing and teaching with the best ensembles in the marching music activity.
Our mission and core values define the way we operate our drum corps…
