2014/15 Team Practice Schedule:
Monday 6:30-7:30pm – Adult Synchro Team Practice
Saturday 7-9am – Youth Synchro Team Practice
Synchronized Skating is a team sport where skaters perform a program together as they move in blocks, lines, circles and even intersecting formations. The teams use footwork and choreography to create a fun and challenging program as they skate to music. It’s a great way to practice skating skills while having fun skating with friends.
Synchronized skating is one of the fastest growing additions to US Figure Skating. There are currently over 525 synchronized skating teams registered with US Figure Skating. Each year, the number of regional and university teams increases, as does the opportunity for teams to compete at regional, national, and international competitions.
Juneau Skating Club has two Synchronized Skating teams: Team Avalanche is our adult team and Team Forget-Me-Not is our youth team. Both teams can be seen performing in our annual skating shows. Anyone who has completed the JSC Basic Skills program or equivalent is welcome to join one of our skating teams.
Youth basic skills skaters in levels 5-8 learn introductory synchronized skating skills on Mondays during the Beginning Figure Skating class from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
