      Figure skating is a sport that puts significant strength and flexibility demands on the body.  Some skaters have natural strength, balance, and core strength that will take them through the lower levels of skating quickly, but the majority of skaters need to improve upon each of those attributes in order to progress to higher levels.  By completing an off-ice training program at least twice a week, skaters will progress their on-ice skills at a faster pace, and be able to handle the strength demands of jumping, spinning, and longer programs.  All skaters in this program will receive a customized warm up routine and off-ice workout they can practice before skating or at home.

  • Youth Synchronized Skating
    • Skyliners Synchronized Skating Team

      Our mission is to prepare skaters to compete at the highest level of synchronized skating locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. To do this, we offer training both on and off the ice to develop our athletes from the beginner through elite levels. We strive to continue to be one of the most competitive teams in the country and welcome skaters who are looking for these challenges.


      Skyliners Synchronized Skating Team was established in 2001 by a group of parents who wanted to create a new competitive synchronized skating club in the tri-state area. Over the last fifteen seasons, Skyliners has grown to be one of the top synchronized skating clubs in the country, winning 6 National Championships, 16 Eastern Championships and placing 4th in the World in 2016. The tremendous growth and success of the team are attributed to the dedicated athletes, the talented coaches and the devoted Board members and parent volunteers who make Skyliners possible season after season.


      This 15th year, Skyliners is again fielding the most teams in its history – 12 competitive lines with 200 skaters ranging in age from 5 to 23. While the majority of the skaters reside in the tri-state area, we also have skaters from California, Minnesota, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. Skyliners train at various rinks throughout the tri-state region. Our Senior, Junior, Novice, Intermediate and Juvenile qualifying lines and Central Park Skyliners developmental lines represent the Skating Club of New York, while our Pre Juvenile, Preliminary, Pre-Preliminary, Beginner and Intro to Beginner non-qualifying lines represent the Springdale Figure Skating Club.


      Each season, Skyliners participate in numerous competitions throughout the country. Since 2004, every one of our qualifying lines has earned a spot to the National Championships. Both our Junior and Senior lines are designated Team USA, and represent the United States at international events. In the 2015-16 season, the Junior line captured the Gold medal at the Leon Lurje in Sweden, the Bronze medal at the French Cup and 4th Place in the World in Zagreb, Croatia. The Senior line captured 4th place at the Neuchatel Trophy in Switzerland.


      Skyliners are often featured at special exhibitions and ice shows. This past season, the team performed in Nancy Kerrigan’s Halloween on Ice show, the Special Olympics NYC ice show, half-time at regional hockey games, as well as local learn to skate exhibitions. Skyliners have also been invited to perform on televised productions such as the Today Show, Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show, even as models during Fashion Week at Wollman Rink. The Team also gives back to the community with its involvement in charity fundraisers throughout the region and the annual Pajama Drive.

      We are very excited for the 2019-2020 Skyliners season to begin! GO SKYLINERS!
