About Synchronized Skating - Eight to sixteen figure skaters perform a program set to music. Team members skate in unison with formations that include lines, blocks, circles, wheels and intersections. Teams perform required step sequences and turns such as three-turns, mohawks, choctaws, twizzles, counters and rockers. There are approximately 525 synchronized teams registered with U.S. Figure Skating, and nearly 5,000 athletes participate annually in the Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships. Learn more at the US Figure Skating Synchronized Skating web page. Synchronized skaters continue with an active individual training and competition schedule throughout the synchronized skating season. Skaters are required to take skating classes and/or private lessons outside of team practices.
