Synchronized Skating

Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8 – 20 skaters perform

together. Elements in “synchro” include blocks, circles, wheels, lines,

intersections, moves in the



field, moves in isolation, no-hold blocks, spins,

jumps and pair moves. We will use the guidelines of the Synchro badge

program through the USFS to introduce skaters to this fun and exciting team

sport. Requires Free Skate 1 or permission of Director.

Intro to Synchro

The Synchro Basic Skills program is the place for Basic Skills level skaters

to get a taste of what it is like to be on a synchronized team! Designed for

Basic Skills Levels 3-8, it introduces skaters to circle, block, line, intersection and wheel

formations. It also familiarizes them with elementary holds, elements and

transitions. This is a great way for Basic Skills skaters to get in another day

of practice while learning to be a team player. Spring session skaters will

have a synchro number in the show. Come join our Junior Synchro Team!!
