Welcome to the Skate Canada-Saskatchewan Synchronized Skating web page! Here you will find information about synchronized skating that is happening in our province and across the country. Visit this site often as updated and new information will appear frequently.
WHAT IS SYNCHRONIZED SKATING?
Synchronized skating or “synchro” is a specialized discipline of skating involving groups of eight or more skaters performing various group formations and manoeuvres. 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.
WHY WOULD WE WANT TO DO SYNCHRONIZIED SKATING IN OUR CLUB?
Because it is a lot of fun for skaters of all ages and skill level. There are no test requirements to participate in any level of synchronized skating. Synchro builds “team spirit”, long-lasting friendships, and skaters get an opportunity to compete as a group in competitions at the provincial and/or national level that may not have been an option for the single skater. It provides a “safety in numbers” concept for the more reluctant skaters where each skater is part of a group on the ice and not the only one. It helps to develop skating skills in a group which is always fun to do.
