About Synchronized Skating

Synchro” is a large and fast-growing discipline of figure skating where 8–20 skaters skate on ice as a team, moving as one flowing unit at high speeds while completing difficult footwork and precision moves.

The discipline was originally called ‘precision skating’ in North America because of the emphasis on maintaining precise formations and timing of the group.

Synchronized Skating uses the same judging system as singles, pairs, and ice dancing skating and is judged primarily on teamwork, precision, speed, difficulty, and performance.
