Boxboro – The Colonials Open Masters Synchronized Skating Team is offering a free two-week session to skate with the team. Come to one or both Friday evenings, Aug. 17 and 24, from 7:30-9:30 p.m., and learn some of the basic skills needed for synchronized team figure skating.
Coach and former national champion, Amy Boucher, will instruct you on circle footwork, intersections, wheels, blocks, lines and presentation. Current team members will also be present to assist and prepare for their upcoming season. Skaters should have basic skating skills of forward and backward crossovers, mohawks and three turns and will also need to become members of USFSA or ISI. Men and women over the age of 35 are welcome.
Practices are held at the Nashoba Valley Olympia Rink, Route 111, Boxboro. The team competes locally and at Easterns with occasional travel involved.
