Special guests, including our newest beginners synchro skaters preforming a festive routine showing off the elements they've learnt over that last few month as well as a host of basingstoke skaters exhibiting solo and group programmes.

Welcome to Basingstoke Synchronised Skating Club

We are a welcoming and friendly club that allows figure-skaters of all levels and ages to skate together. We take part in local and national competitions and occasionally compete abroad. Our teams practice on Thursday evenings a week at Planet Ice, Basingstoke, at either 6:00pm to 7:00pm or 8:30pm to 9:30pm (see 'Our Teams' tab for further details) with additional practices approaching competitions.

Basingstoke Synchro have a rich history within the sport, winning our first British Championship in 2001 with our Junior team Illusion, our team Storm then becoming British Senior Champions from 2004-2008 therefore competing at the Synchro World Championships in Croatia, Prague, Canada and Hungary. We went on to have further success in 2009 when our Mixed Age team Ice Sensation won at the British Championships and Holland Cup.

 

About Synchro:

Synchronized skating is a discipline where up to 20 skaters (depending on level) skate as a team, moving together as one unit. All the skaters in the team must be similarly competent at a wide variety of skating skills. The team performs a program to music including specified elements and step sequences. Synchronized skating uses the same judging system as singles, pairs and ice dance.

The first synchronized skating team was formed in 1956 in Michigan in the USA and the sport has been growing in popularity ever since. The ISU held the first Synchronized Skating World Championships in 2000 in Minneapolis, USA.

Synchronized skating is not currently an Olympic sport but this is under review.
