What is Synchronized Skating?
Synchronized skating is a popular ice skating discipline both within Australia and around the world. The first Australian Synchronized Team was formed in 1983 and since then the sport has grown increasingly throughout the country with representation at Club, State, National and International Levels.
Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 9-16 skaters perform a skating program together. It is characterized by teamwork, unison, speed, intricate formations and challenging step sequences. As with the other disciplines, all teams perform a free skate with required well-balanced program elements. In addition, teams at the junior and senior level perform a short program consisting of required elements.
Elements in synchronized skating include blocks, circles, wheels, lines, intersections, moves in the field, moves in isolation, no-hold blocks, spins and pairs moves. The variety and difficulty of elements require that each team member is a highly skilled individual skater.
