Competition

Swing

Spots

The Aspire Preliminary and Pre-Juvenile teams may designate one or two Swing Spots per team.  A team with seventeen skaters, for example, may choreograph for and compete with sixteen skaters.  Like an understudy in live theater, the Swing skater ensures that a performance is not jeopardized in the event of an illness, injury or absence.  As a synchro team is only as strong as its weakest skater, the Swing spot also creates competition within the team and drives accountability for attendance, conduct during team practices and events, learning and executing a program, and training outside of team practices.  Swing spots are commonly and extensively used in synchro programs from beginner to elite levels.

The Swing skater may change throughout the season and may be named as late as immediately before taking the ice for a competition.  A Swing skater is required to travel to a competition since he or she could be called on to skate at any time.  In the event that a Swing skater does not perform at a competition, the monthly payment as listed below which falls in the month of the competition will be refunded upon the skater's completion of and payment in full for the entire season.

Code Of ConductWhen registering for a team, skaters must also submit a Charlotte Synchro Expectations & Code Of Conduct form.
FSCC MembershipAll members of the Aspire Preliminary and Pre-Juvenile teams must have a current membership with the Figure Skating Club of Charlotte (FSCC).  This requirements is set by U.S. Figure Skating and is necessary for our teams to compete at USFS sanctioned events.  Members of the Aspire Beginner team are encouraged to join FSCC to enjoy member benefits and support our local club.
