2019-2020 Tryout Information


Team Placements - MONDAY  AUGUST 26

On Ice from 5:45-6:45pm. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to warm up and put skates on.


Mandatory Parent Meeting - 6:00-6:45pm. We will likely meet in the lobby of the rink (unless its full, in which case, we’ll go across the street to the Armory) to discuss the sport, time commitment & attendance, approximate cost, expectations of skaters and parents, and my coaching philosophy. This will be short, but I want to make sure everyone is there so I can kick off the season with us all on the same page!

If you suspect you cannot attend tryouts due to an unavoidable conflict, but would like to be considered for the roster, please let me know prior to tryouts so I can plan accordingly for a private tryout.

What to Wear

​Please have skaters wear either a skating dress or athletic pants/top. Athletic jackets are appropriate, though they will need to remove bulkier hoodies or winter jackets to skate effectively together. No jeans or non-athletic wear. Hair should be pulled back out of their face.


We expect to field a Synchro Skills 2 team and a Basic Synchro Skills team. The official descriptions are below, with additional requirements underlined.


Synchro Skills 2: 8-16 skaters, majority under 12 years old (no higher than preliminary moves). 

Minimum Coaches Requirement: Must be able to skate forward on 1 foot proficiently, backwards on 1 foot comfortably. Program will require forward 3 turns, so skaters should have a familiarity with the skill.

Basic Synchro Skills Team:  Passed Basic 1 or equivalent


If you are concerned that your skater may not meet the minimum requirements for the SS2, please contact teamicecubes@gmail.com.
