Kiss & Cry excitement at Synchro Nationals - 2017 Collegiate Championships - University of Michigan and Miami University
Calling all high school students and college bound skaters!
Interested in continuing skating through college?
Join several SCNY collegians, graduates and officials for an overview of collegiate skating, plus participate in an On-ice Mock Intercollegiate Team Maneuvers Competition 9 am to noon, Sunday, April 9, 2017 at Chelsea Piers Sky Rink.
Never heard of maneuvers?
In addition to free skating and solo dance, intercollegiate teams compete in maneuvers -- leveled skills competitions where each team member focuses on one or two required elements (maneuvers) at one of three test-based levels.
Sign up below, sharpen your skates, and join us for an exhilarating morning of mock intercollegiate competition and college skating orientation.
On-Ice Maneuvers (9:00-10:20 am)
Maneuvers will be done as a simulation of an intercollegiate team competition. Participants will select up to two elements that they would like to skate at their current test level when they register for the seminar (see the form below for the list of elements).
