This Junior Blades Introductory Synchronized Ice skating team train every Saturday morning from 08h00 to 09h00 on ice and there is 30 minutes of off ice (compulsory gym) between 09h15 - 10h45 depending on the skater's lesson time. All skaters in Grade 5 and up who are having private lessons are welcome to try out for our synchro team, please speak to Tim Chase (team manager) in this regard. Skaters in Grade 5 and up who are NOT having private lessons at the moment are welcome to attend the trials. If they are selected to the JB synchro squad, they will need to arrange at least one private lesson per week with one of our professional or pro-am coaches. There is a main team of 16 - 20 skaters and then development skaters to ensure continuity of our team.
