Ice Denettes Synchro Tryouts
The Ice Denettes Synchro Program is pleased to announce a tryout for competitive synchro teams at Ice Den Scottsdale! We are excited to welcome skaters to the team who are based in Scottsdale. We currently have over 100 skaters on our 8 teams. The skaters on these teams range in age from 5 years to over 60, and basic skills levels all the way through Olympians!
The new teams in Scottsdale will prepare to compete in Poway, California, the weekend of February 11th along with the rest of the Ice Denettes. We encourage any skaters who are interested in, or even just curious about, team skating to join us for the tryout.
The tryout will take place on Monday, November 21st:
*Aspire Skills Teams (Basic 4 - Freeskate 6) will be from 5:30pm - 6:00pm.
*High Level Tryouts (Pre-preliminary - Senior MITF) will be from 6:00pm - 6:30pm.
All interested skaters should complete one of the following forms:
Skills Team - https://forms.gle/hSov7GAGFQxuvUy88
High Level Team - https://forms.gle/f5joApzpqDcnXMfq6
Skaters should wear all black attire to the tryout, with long hair pulled out of the way in a bun or ponytail. After a guided warm-up, each skater will have an opportunity to demonstrate a few of their favorite or best skills or elements, or skate a 30-second or less "mini-program" without music that showcases their best skills.
Weekly practices will likely be Mondays from 5:30 - 6:30 pm and some Saturdays from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. Schedule, contract, and pricing will be available once we have our teams determined. Choreography boot camp for the new teams is scheduled for Sunday, November 27th, between 2:45 - 7:30 pm.
