Team du Coeur offers competitive synchronized skating teams for those interested in training and competing as a group.
At the Beginner level, skating once a week on a team is not only fun, it also greatly increases a skater's individual skating skills. Teams range from 8 - 16 skaters based upon age and skill level.
Team du Coeur will soon be forming an Introductory and Beginner team for the 2013 - 2014 season.
No synchro experience is needed to audition for any of the Beginner teams. Join our family-friendly atmosphere of teamwork and fun.
Learn the basics of synchronized skating on a non-competitive, performance-based team. Geared for first-time synchro skaters, majority will be age 5 – 8. Skaters should be in Snowplow Sam 3 & up, or Basic 1 – 5. The team will perform in shows and exhibitions at Lakeland from September – February/March
