The Skating Club of Saugerties currently supports an Adult Open Level Synchronized Skating Team called the Mad Cat Skills. The team will be competing at the Empire State Games in Lake Placid in February 2017.
What is Synchronized Skating?
Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together. It uses the same judging system as singles, pairs and dance and is characterized by teamwork, speed, intricate formations and challenging step sequences. Elements in synchronized skating include blocks, circles, wheels, lines, intersections, moves in the field, moves in isolation, no-hold step sequences, spins and pairs moves. The variety and difficulty of elements require that each team member is a highly skilled individual skater.
Want to Try Synchronized Skating?
The team is currently looking for skaters who are over 18 years old and have passed either Juvenile Moves (or Adult Silver Moves). If you are interested in trying out for the team and meet the minimum qualifications (over 18 and passed Juvenile or Adult Silver Moves), please contact Amy at[email protected]
