Synchronized Skating is one of the fast growing disciplines of the four disciplines that are offered through US Figure Skating. 8-16 skaters performing footwork, difficult formations and intersections at high speeds require skill in many areas, including individual, dance and pairs. Moreover, one must understand team concept, respect and sportsmanship.
