For skaters looking to join Mirror Images, we strongly encourage working on the following:

Posture & Presentation

Synch is a performance sport that requires participants to skate to music and present characters. They have to emote to selected music and show expression with their bodies and faces. Eye contact, charisma, interpretation and artistry are all things needed to be a successful synch athlete.

Turn Technique

Not only are we looking for pointed toes and proper heads, we would like our skaters to be on strong edges of all directions and sorts. Turns should be smooth, not skipped, hopped, scrapped or jumped. Depending on the team level, difficult turns must be done with ease and control.

Flexibility & Endurance

Skaters must have endurance to run programs in the cold. They also need to be physically agile and limber to attain Field Move positions such as spread eagles, Biellmann's, spirals and 170s. We strongly encourage skaters to develop their flexibility as they increase their strength.

Power & Stability

There are no free rides in synch and each skater is expected to stay on their feet whenever possible. Developing balance is a critical skill as you are skating close to others both connected and unconnected. Skaters are expected to skate with a variety of holds and arm positions.
