The Sport

Five to twenty 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.



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.



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.


Train &


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.  There are many levels at which synchronized skating teams compete. Higher level teams have minimum Moves In The Field test requirements.  A full list of all competition levels and more information about the sport is available on the US Figure Skating Synchronized Skating web page



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. Many synchronized skaters continue competing on one of over 125  collegiate teams. Charlotte Synchro alumni currently skate for collegiate teams at Michigan, Michigan State, Western Michigan, Trine University (Indiana) and Miami University (Ohio).
