It’s hard to believe that another synchronized skating season is starting! Gardens Synchronicity is proud to be entering our 5th season – highlighted by the five teams we will be fielding this year! We are very excited to continue to have Open Juvenile, Pre-Juvenile, Synchro Skills, and Open Masters lines, and are pleased to add an Open Adult line this season as well!
We were so pleased to have such a HUGE turnout at both our inaugural “Try Synchro Day” event, and tryouts. “Try Synchro Day” was exactly what the name implies, a chance to give synchronized skating a try. There is a lot of information out there about synchronized skating, but we believe that the best way to get a feel for this sport, is to get out and try it! Once you have skated in a line, it’s hard to imagine skating any other way! The other nice part about this event was that it was completely free; a rarity in the skating world!
After two days of tryouts, our coaching staff was able to decide on the best level teams our growing organization could field. Our Open Juvenile line will be coached by me, Kim Dawe, and assisted by Amy Lanier. Pre-Juvenile will be coached by Kate Kreyling, a new addition to our coaching staff, and assisted by Amy Lanier. Synchro Skills will be coached by Anna Nykiel and Cary Russell-Canaan. Our Open Masters Team will be coached by Amy Lanier and Open Adult coached by me!
If you would like to give synchronized skating a try, but you missed “Try Synchro Day” or tryouts, don’t fret! There are still limited spots remaining on all of our teams, which means you can come give synchro a try or even tryout for one of our teams! Spring training starts in May, and while each of the teams will be focusing on improving their skills, they will also be working together to become a cohesive unit. Spring Skills sessions would be a great time to give synchronized skating a try! If you are interested in trying synchronized skating, or would like to tryout for one of our lines, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to share our information with you regarding Spring Skills and what it means to be a part of the team!
Be sure to follow us on social media and here on the website to see what all of our Gardens Synchronicity teams, skaters, and coaches are up to this year. It’s sure to be a great season! – Kim Dawe
