San Diego Alliance, formed in 2000, is a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in San Diego, California.

According to the organization, "The San Diego Alliance is committed to helping young people become better citizens as well as better stewards of their time and talents. In addition, Alliance members learn music and pageantry skills and are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform in front of thousands of young people. We provide an opportunity not only to learn these skills and be a part of a responsible youth group but we also provide a way for young people to expend their energies and time in a productive manner."

In 2002, Alliance competed in DCI Division III, fielding eight brass, 21 percussion, and five guard. They finished 14th in Prelims. Taking a big jump in 2003, the small corps (23 members) finished 19th in Division II/III Prelims. In that 2003 show, the black, white, and purple-clad drum line carried and pounded ten wooden boxes in support of their Amazon-themed show.

The corps is sponsored by Lockheed Martin, Innovative Percussion, Inc., The Master Musician, and, and is hosted by Helix High School.

Alliance did not compete in 2004.
