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. Skate Canada’s SynchroSkate program includes a number of Synchronized Skating categories which accommodate skaters at any age and skill level.
Specific technical requirements have been determined for each team level based on skill development and age restrictions. There are no test prerequisites to participate on any level of Synchro team.
Synchronized skating has grown in popularity around the world and Canada is considered a world-leader in this discipline. As a result of this increased popularity and demand from skaters across the Greater Hamilton Area, Steel City Synchro was formulated in the 2016/2017 season to provide skaters of all age and skill levels to participate in this team sport.
