SYNCHRONIZED SKATING

Flatiron Sparks Synchronized Skating Team

Learn to improve your skating skills while making friends on our synchronized skating teams. Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together. It uses the same judging system as singles, pairs and dance and is characterized by teamwork, speed, intricate formations and challenging step sequences. The YMCA Flatirons Sparks program encompasses four different teams from introductory to an advanced team that competes at USFSA Synchronized Skating Sectionals.
