“Our daughter has always been very quiet and shy, and skating in front of a crowd seemed like an unbelievable goal for our 8-year-old! She has surpassed all of our expectations. When she skated in her first show, the smile on her face and her chin held high was an unbelievable sight! Skating synchro has brought our daughter out of her shell!”

Synchronized Team Skating is the fastest growing component of figure skating combining elements of ballet, ice dancing and pairs skating into an exciting on ice performance. A well-balanced program includes circles, lines, blocks, wheels, and intersections. The emphasis is on the accuracy of formations and synchronization of the team.
Synchronized Skating brought the team concept to a sport that was focused on singles and pairs. It is this team aspect that encourages camaraderie and long term participation in skating. In addition, because "Synchro" is one of the few co-ed sports, it has drastically expanded participation opportunities in skating. Synchro is a challenging and thrilling sport!
Teams consist of 8-24 skaters who must develop and master the basics of skating in order to execute difficult formations with speed and accuracy. Skaters strive for continuous movement requiring smooth transitions, intricate footwork and difficult turns.
All skaters are expected to maintain and improve individual skills throughout the synchronized skating season through consistent practice and private or group lessons.
Under the guidance of highly qualified coaches, Team Chiller strives to foster a sense of team spirit, placing an emphasis on skill development and participation in a fun and supportive environment.
This will be accomplished by encouraging teamwork and sportsmanship while supporting individual skaters as they seek to achieve their unique potential.
