Central Park Ice is the largest synchronized skating program in New York City. Formed in the 2007-08 winter season, the teams have the distinction of being some of the only teams in the U.S. to practice outdoors – in the middle of New York City at Wollman Rink!
Central Park Ice started with eight skaters and one practice session each week shared with Snowplow Sam tots.
We have grown steadily over the years:
2010-2011: Open Juvenile, NEW Beginner
2011-2012: Open Juvenile, NEW Pre-Juvenile, Beginner
2012-2013: Open Juvenile, NEW Preliminary, Beginner
We are very excited to be fielding three teams for the 2012-2013 season with more skaters on our teams than ever! Synchronized skating is sweeping through the figure skating community, and we are happy to provide the opportunity for New York City skaters to participate in this wonderful part of the sport!

Synchronized Skating is the fastest growing segment of figure skating, combining elements of ballet, ice dancing and pairs skating into an exciting on-ice performance. “Synchro” has brought the team concept to a sport that was historically focused on singles and pairs. It is this team aspect that encourages camaraderie and long term participation in skating. Team members must develop and master the basics of skating in order to execute difficult formations with speed and accuracy.
