It's been two decades since Barrie Skating Club’s success in national and international synchronized skating competitions, and now, the time has come to reignite that passion and excellence.

The Barrie Skating Club proudly announces tryouts for synchro skating teams scheduled for Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5 at the Allandale Recreation Centre in Barrie.

Led by head coach Lyndsay Burrows, supported by a talented roster of specialty coaches, this endeavour promises an unforgettable journey of skill development, teamwork, and, above all, fun.

Skaters from Simcoe County and surrounding areas, ages 12 and under, as well as over 12, are invited to join us as we pave our way back to the top.

One of our key aspirations is to participate in the newly formed Skate Canada Trophy in Edmonton, Alta., at the intermediate/gold level. This presents an exciting opportunity for our teams to showcase their talent on a national stage and compete against some of the best synchronized skating teams in the country.

"The possibilities are endless," says head coach Lyndsay Burrows. "Synchronized skating offers not only the thrill of competition, but also a sense of camaraderie and achievement that extends beyond the ice."

Alongside our upcoming tryouts, we encourage everyone to delve into the captivating world of synchro skating.

Did you know that synchro is an integral part of the university journey? Canadian universities have varsity skating teams and the United States even represent their university teams at the world championships, showcasing the remarkable blend of higher education and world-class athleticism.

Join us at tryouts to experience firsthand the excitement and camaraderie of synchronized skating.
