What is Synchronized Skating?
Synchronized skating, or “synchro” is a specialized discipline of skating involving groups of eight or more skaters performing various group formations and maneuvers. The objective is for the team to perform as one unit executing circles, blocks, lines, wheels and intersections in unison to the music, while demonstrating quality edges, power and flow. Synchronized Skating has grown in popularity around the world as it provides a great place for skaters to become part of a team and skate for life.
Synchronized skating promotes teamwork, cooperation and good sportsmanship which are essential for strong team performances. Synchro skating also builds confidence and self-esteem in skaters by working through a difficult goal as a team, due to hard work, determination and cooperation in a safe and fun environment.
