There are so many benefits to participating in a team sport, and synchronized skating is a great way for skaters to compete while enjoying all of the aspects of working with others in a team-oriented sport.
Synchronized skating is a popular discipline both within U.S. Figure Skating and around the world. U.S. Figure Skating held the first U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships in 1984 and also hosted the first World Synchronized Skating Championships in 2000. The objective of the Intro to Synchro Class is to familiarize skaters with elementary holds, formations, circles, intersections and transitions while skating a group.
What a great way to make friends and prepare for a U.S. Figure Skating Synchronized Team!
This class consists of two teams:
YOUTH - ages 5-8, Snowplow 3 & above skating level
TEEN - ages 9 & above, Basic 3 & above skating level
The Wednesday evening 30 minute class includes choreographed program to music, skating dress, tights, and performance at the Frederick Figure Skating Shows. It’s a great way to make friends and prepare for one of the DMV travel teams.
Competitive teams are field with a variety of skating abilities for each team. Tryouts are held in early spring and practices begin late summer.
