The SunCoast Skating Team Synchronized Program was founded at AdventHealth Center Ice 2022. Our program was comprised of one team in the 2022 – 2023 season and plans to have at least two teams in the upcoming 2023 – 2024 season. Synchro is a highly competitive sport throughout the world and through our program we hope to push skaters to be their best while training in a positive team environment. We strive on being a supportive community that creates friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Synchro offers the benefit of team unity, builds self-confidence, teaches good sportsmanship, and creates new lifelong friendships, while improving your skating skills at a competitive level. Learning the skills of synchronized skating will enhance your abilities as a figure skater in Freestyle, Moves in the Field and Ice Dance.
Athletes who pursue synchronized skating at the elite level and complete all of their Gold tests can be Team USA athletes who compete at the world level. Synchronized skating offers skaters college scholarships to continue skating. Many colleges have synchro teams with skaters who are members of Team USA and compete at the international level. Participating in team sports is an important and valuable experience for athletes so they can learn how to excel and succeed within a group. In the world of figure skating this experience doesn’t present itself very often. Team skating will encourage your skater to step out of their comfort zone, become better at working with and relating to others, and enjoy the camaraderie that comes from competing with friends rather than against them. If your skater has dreams of skating with Disney on Ice or any other professional ice show, team skating experience is something that will stand out in their resume.
Synchronized skating is a popular discipline around the world. The US Figure Skating Assn. held the first synchronized skating championships in 1984, and also hosted the first World Synchronized Skating Championships in 2000. There are approximately 600 synchronized teams registered with USFS, and nearly 5,000 athletes participate annually in the synchronized skating sectional championships.
