Synchronized Team Skating
Workshops are designed to provide skaters with an introduction to world of 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.
The number of skaters who may be interested in skating on a team may vary each year. It is desirable to have as many different levels of teams so that a skater can progress to the next higher group as their individual skating abilities allow.
Generally coaches hold tryouts at the start of each season to form teams for each Synchro level the club is sponsoring.
