The Curro Drum Majorettes Team was started in 2002. The team slowly climbed up the ranks until it was crowned the South African Champion of Champions in 2009. The Curro team comprises girls aged between 8 and 13 years old who train three times a week. The principal trainer is Miss Candice Combrinck and the co-trainer is Miss Leanne Beattie.

A number of the team members have been awarded Colours and South African Protea Colours in this sport. In 2009, Curro boasted 5 team members in the SA Team, which competed in Texas, United States. Miss Candice Combrinck was also the SA Coach for the Junior Team. South Africa came home with 25 trophies – gold, silver and bronze.

Curro drummies compete in various categories ranging from drill team to groups. Each division requires a certain number of girls. They have been the largest team in South Africa for the past three years.” (CTMT 2010)
