If you love skating, love being with your friends and want to have some fun performing with your friends, then you should give synchronized skating a try!
What is synchronized skating you ask? Synchronized Skating is a discipline of figure skating where 5–20 skaters skate together as one team. Synchronized Skating is the fastest growing discipline of competitive skating in the world. With many college level opportunities now presenting themselves and Olympic competition on the horizon, the discipline continues to grow rapidly in skill and participation.
Last season the Findlay Silver Blades FSC was proud to have 4 teams - The Silver Streaks - representing them at local and national competitions. The Silver Streaks synchronized skating team is the only synchronized skating team in Northwest Ohio and competes in Learn to Skate USA and US Figure Skating Competitions.
The Silver Streaks will host synchro bootcamps on Thursday May 11th, 18th, 25th, June 1st and June 8th from 4:45-5:20 PM. All those interested in joining next season's teams and/or learning more about synchronized skating should join us for bootcamp. We have teams for all levels and abilities. If you cannot make bootcamp but wish to join, please contact Coach Christy at email@example.com ASAP.
Please note that by participating in boot camp you are not obligated to join a 2023-2024 team. The synchronized skating team packet filled with valuable information for next year's teams is located below and team placement packets will be sent out after the second bootcamp practice.
We hope you will be a part of our 2023-2024 Silver Streaks family!

Absolutely. Skaters of all levels, ages and abilities are invited to try out. There is no prior experience needed to try out, just a willingness to learn, be coached and have fun. Furthermore, many skaters find that they love the team aspect of synchronized skating and we encourage skaters to continue training in freestyle, moves in the field and ice dancing outside of team practices!
Female skaters should wear black leggings or tights with a skating dress/skirt, fitted top/jacket and have hair pulled neatly away from face in a bun (preferably). Male skaters should wear pants and a fitted shirt. We prefer black or dark clothing. No hooded shirts, jewelry, gloves or pants for females permitted. Water bottles encouraged. We are working on finding sponsors to assist us in purchasing team attire, so if you know of any sponsorship opportunities, please let us know.
No. The strict attendance policy is referring to unexcused absences (for example, missing practice for a sleep over). When a skater is going to miss because of illness, or attendance at a school or religious function, the skater will need to fill out an absence form. Excessive absences will result in a meeting with Coaches and Synchro Directors. Please see your coach for more details.
We will be following all the Covid policies set forth by Learn to Skate USA, US Figure Skating, ISI, The Cube, The Hancock County Health Board and the Findlay Silver Blades FSC board. In addition, hand sanitizer will be used by all skaters prior to the start of practice
The team requirements are listed below for each team. US Figure Skating and Learn to Skate USA have strict test and age requirements for each team level as do our coaches. While the team requirements are listed below for each team, please remind your skaters that this is a season for everyone to develop, learn and have fun. If they do not meet the requirements for a certain level, this will give them something to work towards for the next season while making new friends on the team that meets their needs for success now. We, as a coaching staff, rely heavily on positive attitudes, a willingness to learn and be coached as well as a commitment to your team and the ability of our skaters to work together.
