Join a Team, Make New Friends, Build Confidence
Sharks Ice is the home of the ISI World Champion Golden State Synchronizd Skating Teams, currently hosting 64 team members in three divisions: Youth, Senior Youth, and Teen.
Synchronized skating is a fun way for all skaters at any level to improve edge quality, power, speed, and flexibility. All programs are choreographed for the age and ability of each team using the basic synchronized elements: Line, Circle, Block, Wheel, and Intersection while skating in unison. For the beginning skater wh ohas a minimum of skating skills, speed and extreme difficulty are not expected. For skaters who have already mastered the basics of synchronized skating, more difficult programs are expected with focus on unison, cleanness, speed, and intricate footwork.
