Synchronized Skating

What Is Synchro? 

  • Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together including, speed, formations and step sequences all together, connected, and performing those things at the same time.  

  • It’s done with a program to music, usually with a theme, and in 8 counts kind of like dance.  

  • There are so many benefits to participating in a team sport and synchronized skating is a great way for figure skaters to compete in a sport they love while enjoying all of the aspects of working with others!

  • It’s also a leading form of competitive skating through college and adulthood.  

Our Goal: 

  • This clinic will teach skaters the fundamentals of a synchronized skating program.  There are no obligations or team commitments to participate in the clinic.

  • On week 5 of the clinic, we will have a parent meeting to go over what it means to be on a competitive team, fall team budget, expectations, etc.  We hope to have 2 competitive teams for the 2023-2024 season that will start practice in August July and August
