Skating Workshops

 San Diego Figure Skating Communications
Synchronized Team Skating

    The goal of this workshop is to provide skaters with an introduction to Synchronized Team Skating.

    The ability to perform together in unison requires a strong background in the fundamental skills of skating on edges, performing turns and steps with full body control, and a combination of stamina and an ability to consistently perform in exhibition and competitive situations.

    In any year, the number of skaters who may be interested in skating on a team may vary. Teams usually hold tryouts at the start of each season to form a team for each Synchro level they sponsor.
