Mini Mates, Star Mates, & Ice Mates (Juvenile, Intermediate and Novice)

Our National Competing Progression includes teams eligible to compete for a spot at the U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships (Nationals) in the following divisions: Juvenile, Intermediate/Novice.

At the Juvenile through Novice levels, our goal is for athletes to learn the elite aspects of synchronized skating to allow them to be nationally competitive and to prepare them for international competition at the next level. To achieve this, we expect dedication and hard work appropriate for the level of the team In addition to team practices, athletes are expected to continue practice on their own and instruction with their private coaches in order to progress through Moves, Dance, and Freeskate tests. With experience in our National Competing Progression - Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice - athletes are prepared for future placement on our Team USA teams .

Placement on our teams is determined by the age, experience, and skill level of each athlete. Test requirements outlined in USFS rules are minimum requirements, and typically, higher test requirements are preferred. Young skaters without preferred tests can gain experience in our Developmental Program .
