** Associate membership fee**
THE WISCONSIN INSPIRE COOPERATIVE brings together skaters and coaches in Southern Wisconsin who share a passion for synchronized skating. Members of the Wisconsin Inspire Cooperative learn more about the world of synchronized skating while sharing their knowledge of the sport. In addition, members have access to training clinics and camps to build their skating skills. In the years to come, the Wisconsin Inspire Cooperative will be more than just a network of skaters and coaches who have a love for synchronized skating. With no single club affiliation, this program will provide an opportunity to skate on an IJS level synchronized skating team while still representing a skater's home club.
(final schedule TBD)
Synchronized skating is a "Team" sport that teaches cooperation, responsibility, and the love of skating. Life skills that will last a lifetime!
Teams are made up of 8-20 skaters which skate a routine to music comprised of different shapes and skating maneuvers. Levels begin as early as snowplow sam and continue as high as the intermational level. (Soon to be an Olympic sport)
Our teams have medaled at the sectional level and competed all over the country at the National Synchronized Skating Championships.
