Synchronised Skating - The New Force In Figure Skating!
Synchronized skating is a large and fast-growing discipline of figure skating where 8-20 (the number of skaters on a team depends on the level) skaters skate on ice as a team, moving as one flowing unit at high speeds while completing difficult footwork.
The discipline was originally called precision skating in North America because of the emphasis on maintaining precise formations and timing of the group. Synchronized Skating uses the same judging system as singles, pairs, and ice dancing skating and is judged primarily on teamwork, precision, speed, difficulty, and performance. For a synchronized team to flow in unison, individual skaters must be competent at a variety of skating skills, including speed, footwork and ice presence.
