Introducing exciting opportunities for skaters interested in Synchronized Skating at a really reasonable price! Read on to see opportunities for Synchro Mania, Synchro University, and Adult Synchro.
First, for skaters who have not begun to take USFS Moves Tests through those who have passed Preliminary Moves, our Synchro Mania class on Saturday mornings gives you the chance to participate in a synchro experience at the cost of a learn to skate class. There are currently over ten skaters enrolled in the class, some of whom take group lessons and some who have private coaching. This class will have a special number in the Ice Show. It is coached by Lauren Tseng, world competitor and former captain of the acclaimed Miami University Synchronized Skating Team. This class is offered at 10:30 AM Saturday mornings. Register by February 23, 2012 to avoid a late fee. The session begins February 27, 2012, but you can try it out for free for any of the remaining Saturdays in February, 2012.
For skaters who have passed their Prejuvenile Moves tests or higher, we are offering "Synchro U". This college prep group will be coached by Michigan State University synchronized skating coach Erin Bridge. The group will also perform a special number in the Ice Show. Practices will be held Monday nights, 8:45 PM to 10:15 PM, with a half hour of off ice practice beginning at 8:15 PM. We secured late ice to allow skaters who participate in other activities to fit this into their busy life. Practices begin Monday, March 19, 2012 and continue every Monday through the Ice Show, May 11 and 12, 2012. This is a great opportunity for skaters to have a lot of fun and see what is involved in collegiate skating. It is not a team and does not begin until after the competitive season for U.S. Synchro has ended, so skaters who are on teams are welcome to participate without conflicts.
Finally, we are putting plans together for an ADULT SYNCHRO GROUP! There is a lot of excitement for this opportunity for adult skaters to get together for fun and fitness. Details are still being worked out, so watch your in-boxes for more information. At this time, we are tentatively planning practices on Sunday afternoons between 2:00 PM and 3:30 PM beginning Sunday, June 24, 2012. Joining the group does not commit you to a team, so if you ever wanted to skate with other adults to see what it is all about, here is your chance.
