Bracknell Ice Skating CLub

Web Archives - Synchro Skating News - 2012


Many congratulations to our Preliminary synchronised skating team who won convincingly with their Diamond/Moulin Rouge routine at Lee Valley on Monday against teams from Scotland, Wales and the North West.

This is the team’s much deserved first win and first time on the podium since they formed in 2009/10 and a fantastic start to the season! Their hard work and dedication to improving and extending their skating skills really showed in this polished performance and despite their previous disappointing setbacks they have never given up.

Huge credit to all the girls and their captain, Hannah McGivern, vice captain, Ellie Bramley and many many thanks to Chris Hockaday for recent coaching and Lucine Chakmakjian for choreography.

Brilliant teamwork indeed!

Full results



Well – what a competition! Such excitement and drama! Congratulations to our Synchro teams who performed so well and showed such a tremendous team spirit regardless of the setbacks and hurdles that arose in the weeks before and on the day particularly for the Preliminary team. As the current British Champions, the Adult team successfully and deservedly retained its Scottish title taking 1st place achieving its highest IJS mark since it formed in 2009. The Elementary team skated brilliantly to come 4th and the Preliminary team, against all the odds, came a creditable 8th. Without doubt all three teams put in magnificent and memorable performances, making everyone so proud and giving BISC’s synchronised skating section much to look forward to in the coming 2012/13 season.

Many thanks to all involved in managing and running the teams, the coaches, captains, vice captains, the chaperones, the make-up ladies and the families and friends who supported the teams throughout the competition, Open evening and hockey demos. Thanks also go to the Bracknell Bees who invited the teams to perform their programmes during their match intervals in preparation for the competition.
