Chiller Synchro 101

NUTS & BOLTS

Synchronized Team Skating combines elements of skating, footwork, dance and precision into an exciting on-ice performance. It is the team aspect that
encourages camaraderie and long term participation in skating.

“Our daughter has always been very quiet and shy, and skating in front of a crowd seemed like an unbelievable goal for our 8-year-old! She has surpassed all of our expectations. When she skated in her first show, the smile on her face and her chin held high was an unbelievable sight! Skating synchro has brought our daughter out of her shell!”

Introductory teams perform locally and may participate in one local competition. Competitive teams compete and perform locally and also travel to nearby states during the season.

Weekly practices are held Sundays starting late afternoon and throughout the evening at Chiller Easton. Practice times are divided up by team.

From November—April the teams typically have one competition or performance per month.

For Introductory Teams—Payments are $80-$100 per month depending on level of team, Aug thru April. This includes the cost of weekly practice ice, coaching, dress and tights.

For Competitive Teams -Payments are approximately $165 per month Aug thru April—this includes the cost of weekly home practice ice and coaching, competition attire, and competition entry fees.

Skaters are expected to practice individual skills on their own and continue to strengthen skating skills. The team counts on each and every member to give their very best.
