A Dynamic Sport
Synchronised figure skating brings together between 10 and 16 skaters (plus 4 reserves) in teams which can include both men and women.
The aim is to achieve perfect synchronicity in time to the music, whilst performing technical elements such as the block, the wheel, or the intersection..
Synchronised figure skating had its infancy in Canada and Northern Europe at the beginning of the 20th century and quickly became a very popular sport.
French teams continue to perform strongly at an international level and here, as in other parts of the world, it is considered both a recreational and a competitive sport.
It is a uniquely collaborative discipline, which holds an attraction for all skaters, whatever their standard of skating.
