What is Synchronized Skating?
Synchronized skating is the fastest growing segment of figure skating. Best described as "Rockettes on Ice," a synchronized skating team consists of 8 to 20 members skating in unison to a choreographed program set to music. Programs are performed in front of judges during competitions.

Synchronized Skating at RMU
Beginning in 2006-07, Robert Morris University will field a women's synchronized skating team that will compete in the Intercollegiate Division of the U.S. Figure Skating Association. The team is a club sport, under the direction of the Office of Student Activities.

Interested students should have basic to advanced skating ability. Team tryouts will be held in September, with the practice and competition season running from September through April each year. Skaters are expected to commit three to six hours per week for practice, on- and off-ice conditioning, choreography and competition.
