What is Synchro?
Known by their fans as ‘synchro’, synchronized skating is team sport consisting of teams of 8-20 skaters who perform side by side on the ice.
Competitive skaters are challenged to perform their best and work together as a team. Lifelong friendships are formed, as skaters develop character, perseverance, and discipline in the framework of skating as one heartbeat.
First recognized by the ISU in 1994, synchronized skating is the newest discipline of figure skating. Synchro’s roots began in the United States and has quickly spread to 20 countries on 5 continents in recent years. Today, over 580 synchro teams compete each year as members of U.S. Figure Skating. It is a competitive team sport that is rapidly growing in popularity throughout the world.
