Warwick Figure Skaters hosts the only competitive synchronized skating program in RI. Our program has been successful for many years and has won international competitions. Currently coached by Kristine Wilkinson, WFS Synchro is a great opportunity for a skater to show off his or her skills in a team setting, make new friends and be part of the fastest-growing discipline in the figure skating world.
There are approximately 525 synchronized teams registered with U.S. Figure Skating, and nearly 5,000 athletes participate annually in the synchronized skating sectional championships.
Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together and is characterized by teamwork, speed, intricate formations and challenging step sequences.
Elements in synchronized skating include blocks, circles, wheels, lines, intersections, moves in the field, moves in isolation, no-hold step sequences, spins and pairs moves.
