Synchronized skating is a team sport where 8 to 16 skaters (depending on the level) perform a program together as a team. They must move as a flowing unit doing technical footwork and performing various group formations and maneuvers. It is often simply called “synchro”. The objective is for the team to perform as one unit, in unison to the music, while demonstrating quality edges, power and flow. It is a great way to combine the pleasure of figure skating with the benefits of participating in a team sport.
Skaters joining Synchronized team, should work on their individual skills, such as dance, skills and freeskate, during STAR or Competitive sessions. Skaters are expected to be registered in one of those streams, before auditioning to a team.
