HAVE AN INTEREST IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT SYNCHRONIZED SKATING?
Then, we want to hear from you!
Synchronized skating is one of the fastest growing and exciting sports in Canada, it involves groups of skaters who perform choreographed routines in unison to music, executing intricate footwork in a variety of maneuvers and formations. Combining the artistry and athleticism of figure skating with the excitement of team sport, synchronized skating attracts skaters of all ages and ability. The combination of creative choreography, appealing music and attractive costumes makes this a great sport for participants and spectators alike!
There are currently spaces available on our Beginner teams. The synchro program commences Saturday, October 3 and runs from 8:00-8:40am at Feildian Gardens. No experience is needed but pre registration is required. For more information contact Barbara Kirkland at the club office or Lisa Curran at email@example.com.
The club held a successful synchro seminar September 12. Thanks to Nancy Alexander, Yvan Rouille and Nicole Burt for an informative and fun day.
