Join a Synchronized Skating Team, Make New Friends, Build Confidence!

Solar4America Ice is the home of the ISI World Champion Synchronized Skating Teams, Sharks Ice in Sync. We currently host 63 team members in two youth divisions and one adult. We would like to add an additional youth team for 2020.

 

Synchronized skating is a fun way for all skaters at any level to improve edge quality, power, speed, and flexibility. All programs are choreographed for the age and ability of each team using the basic synchronize skating elements: Line, Circle, Block, Wheel, and Intersection while skating in unison.  For the beginning skater who has a minimum of skating skills speed and extreme difficulty is not expected. For skaters who have already mastered the basics of good synchronize skating more difficult programs are expected with focus on unison, cleanness, speed and intricate footwork.
