Crystal Edge Coaching Job Description

 

Synchronized Ice Skating is the fastest growing discipline within the United States Figure Skating Association (USFSA), topping singles skating, pairs and ice dancing.  It involves 8-16 skaters on the ice at the same time, and is made up of complex formations and maneuvers, difficult footwork, changing hand and arm holds, deep edges, sharp changes in direction, and complete uniformity.   Like figure skating, “synchro” requires grace, speed, endurance, agility and rhythm.

The mission of CIFSC synchronized skating is to help our skaters grow as athletes and individuals by teaching teamwork, goal setting, responsibility, discipline and commitment in all aspects of life.

Synchronized skating is open to freestyle skaters of all ages and abilities.  Our program is designed to provide growth and development for all skaters, and tries to provide any interested skater an opportunity to participate. 

We currently sponsor the Crystal Edge Gold Team, which competes at the Open Juvenile Level and is open to skaters who have passed their Preliminary MIF Test, and the Crystal Edge Silver Team, which competes as the Basic Skills 2 Level, and is open to skaters who have not tested beyond the Preliminary MIF test. 

Please be advised there is an additional charge to join these synchronized teams.
