You’re never too young for synchro! This introductory team is made up of our very youngest skaters, from age 4 and up, who practice together once per week while still enrolled in Basic Skills classes. While Snowplow Sam is mainly a performance-based team division, our team will also compete in one or two local competitions each season. The skaters learn a basic synchronized skating program to music, and perform regularly at the Onyx and Macomb arenas. Along with our older synchro teams, this team performs in the holiday show and exhibitions for family and friends. This is a great way for young skaters to get involved in a team sport. Skaters should be able to stroke forward, and stand up and stop on their own.
This team is made up of skaters new or fairly new to synchronized skating, the majority of whom are under age 12. Skaters are often still in Basic Skills lessons (classes) and transitioning to private lessons. The team competes in five or six local/regional competitions each year and practices once per week as a team, along with their individual skating. Skaters should be in Basic 4 or higher by tryouts.
The majority of skaters on this team are age 9 – 12 and have passed Pre-Prelim and Preliminary Moves tests. Many have synchro experience, but not all; we welcome those who would like to learn! The team competes locally, regionally and at the Midwestern Synchronized Skating Championships each season. They practice twice per week as a team.
Adult is the most competitive division of adult synchronized skating. This team travels to the Midwestern Synchronized Skating Championships annually in order to qualify for the National Synchronized Skating Championships. Three to four other local competitions are also part of the competitive schedule for this team.
