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.  More information about Synchronized Skating Elements is available on the Required Elements Page.  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. 


There are many levels at which synchronized skating teams compete.  A full list of all competition levels is available on the Team Definitions Page.  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.
