Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together. It uses the same judging system as Olympic singles, pairs and ice dance and is characterized by teamwork, unison, intricate formations and challenging footwork. The sport is sponsored by United States Figure Skating and there are approximately 525 synchronized teams registered with U.S. Figure Skating, and nearly 5,000 athletes participate annually in the synchronized skating sectional championships.
Hayden Synchronized Skating is dedicated to helping young women and men develop personal discipline and self confidence, combined with a selfless focus on teamwork. The skills each skater learns help prepare them to succeed both on and off the ice for their entire lives. Our motto: “Perform beautifully in life!”
