Meet Our 2020 Teams

You’re never too young for synchro! This introductory team is made up of our very youngest skaters, from age 4 and up, who practice together once per week while still enrolled in Basic Skills classes. While Snowplow Sam is mainly a performance-based team division, skaters perform five (5) times per season, three of which are competitions. The skaters learn a basic synchronized skating program to music, and perform regularly at the Onyx and Macomb arenas. Along with our older synchro teams, this team performs in the holiday show and exhibitions for family and friends. This is a great way for young skaters to get involved in a team sport.  Skaters should be able to stroke forward, and stand up and stop on their own. 

Skating Level: Enrolled in Snowplow Sam through Basic 3

 All events and performances are held within driving distance.
