Synchronized skating is rapidly gaining popularity in South Florida. What is unique about synchronized skating is that it offers a team experience to figure skaters of all ages and abilities. Synchronized skating allows skaters from ages four through adult to experience competition, team camaraderie and the option to continue the fun of skating for many years. It is fast becoming a collegiate sport in college and universities across the country.
