Bracknell Ice Skating Club - Synchro Skating


What is synchronized skating?

Synchronized (synchro) skating is a competitive sport involving a team of between 9 and 16 skaters who perform highly practised group moves in perfect unison to music. In fast-paced routines, skaters form circles, lines, blocks, wheels and intersections choreographed to allow for expression and interpretation of the music. Teams are judged on these elements in addition to their edge work, program difficulty, style and artistic expression. We currently have one adult team, two under 18 teams and a newly formed team of 10-12yr olds. The coaches are, Terri Smith and Hannah Hetebrij.

The Adult Fusion team are currently British and Scottish Champions. Although skaters and numbers in the team have changed since it was formed in 2009 the consistency and dedication for the team have never wavered, resulting in two gold and two silver, in 4 Championships over the last two years.

New members for all teams would be most welcome. All that is required is to have passed the Skate UK courses which are offered at most ice rinks. Skaters will be allocated to the team that is suitable for their ability.

Historically our teams have done well at all levels. Synchro skating combines the beauty, elegance and difficulty of freestyle skating with the advantages and excitement of a team sport.
