Dear HISC members
Ice Reflections, the Hunter Ice Skating Club’s synchronised skating team, are currently seeking new members.
Ice Reflections were silver medallists at the Australian Figure Skating Championships in 2014 and 2015. They are coached by Lara Matskel.
Synchronised skating is a great team sport that involves up to 16 skaters doing manoeuvres on the ice to music. It is great for fitness, socialising and gaining ice skating competence and confidence.
We are currently looking for skaters of all ages and abilities. We are looking to form an Aussie Skate team and are also looking for additional skaters to join our current National Competition team. If you would like to give Synchro a try, please come along for a fun trial day on Sunday 21st February at 7:30am. Cost will be $8 for ice time.
Please wear something comfortable that does not inhibit your range of movement. Dangly earrings and jewellery which could get caught on clothing or scratch other people should be avoided. Gloves should not be worn as a firm grip is required for some of our manoeuvre’s.
Should you decide to continue and become a member of Ice Reflections, training is held on Sundays from 6:30-8:30am, and the cost is per week (inclusive of coaching and ice time).
