About

The Sport

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.

Charlotte

Synchro

Our synchronized skating teams have been performing in ice shows and competing in regional and nationally based competitions every season since 2010. Participants develop skating, teamwork and leadership skills. Fun and friendship are at the heart of every practice, show, competition and trip.

Season

Overview

Team tryouts are held in Spring. Main and mini camps are held over the summer to develop team unity and learn choreography for the program of the coming season. From September through February, teams practice one to two times per week. Teams compete at three to five USFS sanctioned competitions held in North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania and other states named by USFS as competition locations. Teams perform in three to five ice shows and exhibitions at the Pineville Ice House. Skaters and families enjoy social events such as our annual Carowinds trip, Meet Charlotte Synchro and an end of season banquet.
