Synchronized skating or “Synchro”
Synchro is a specialized discipline of skating involving groups of eight (six for Star 2, 3 & 4) 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 categories accommodate skaters at any age and skill level.
Star 2, 3 & 4 Synchro
The focus of the discipline of Synchro is the development of synchronized skating elements through a variety of skating skills and teamwork. Synchro elements are offered at Star 2, 3 and 4 to bring awareness to the technique needed for program development.
At the Star 2 – 4 level, it is not necessary to form a traditional “team” of skaters. As all elements in Synchro must be performed by a group of skaters, teams or groups may be formed through various formats including:
- A group of skaters for lesson purposes
- A session of skaters (could divide into smaller groups if numbers are large)
- A combination of groups to create a larger group
- The teams or groups for Star assessments are not meant to be formal, binding, or restrictive.
Adult Synchronized Skating
Skate Canada’s SynchroSkate program offers adult skaters the opportunity to participate in the discipline as well. With three adult categories, skaters of all skill levels and experience may join a team and compete at various club, interclub, invitational and regional competitions.
