Did you know that the Southern CT Synchronized Skating Teams practice at Terry Conners Rink? They finish their season in March and have already started thinking about next year.
The Skating Club of Southern CT currently has three synchronized skating teams – Sprites, Shimmers, & Shadows.
They train year round and perform in competitions and exhibitions.
Sprites are an Invitational Beginner Team. Team selection is based on coach evaluation and try-outs. The team will participate in competitions and exhibitions; the skater must be working on Basic 6 or higher. The skater must also improve their skating skills by continuing with the basic badge classes.

Shadows are an Open Juvenile Competitive Team. They will travel and compete throughout the east coast area and perform in numerous exhibitions. The age requirement is 13-18. Skaters must have passed their juvenile moves in the field or higher and preliminary freestyle; team selection is by try-outs.
