Synchronized Skating Teams
Synchronized skating is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together. The Glenview Ice Center is pround to be the home of the Glenview Blades, two Basic Skills Synchronized Skating Teams.
Clinics and tryouts for these teams occur every April/May. See the Forms Box above for 2013-2014 information.
If you are interested or have any questions about Synchronized Skating, call Dorie Cascio at 847-724-2800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The success of Glenview’s Synchronized Skating teams is due in large part to the efforts of the team families who make up the Glenview Blades Organization. Blades families volunteer at various events throughout the year. The bulk of their volunteer efforts are geared towards fundraising to help defray team costs of items such as costumes, tights, t-shirts, team dinners, competition entry fees and more.
The Glenview Blades synchronized skating teams participated in the Skating Council of Illinois’ Second Annual Synchro Illinois Competition held at the Homewood-Flossmoor Ice Arena. The Blades synchronized skating teams wowed the crowd with their exciting performances. Skating to the theme of ‘astronaut’, the Blades Beginner 1 and Pre Juvenile teams performed a dynamic program with speed as well as extra round circles. The teams continued this year at the Skokie Skatium’s Winter Blizzard Competition. The Beginner 1 and the Pre Juvenile teams dazzled the crowd once again and earned 2nd place. The team’s competition schedule continues with the Freeze Competition at the Glenview Ice Center in February, March will be Highland Park and Hoffman Estates, and in April, Crystal Lake.
