Central Park Ice is the largest competitive synchronized skating program for school-aged youth in New York City. Our teams of committed skaters aged 8 to 18, from various boroughs of New York, are guided by a professional team of dedicated and caring coaches. We are proud to represent the Skating Club of New York at performances on beautiful rinks throughout New York City and at competitions throughout the Northeast.
Central Park Ice was founded in Central Park in 2007 by head coach Ashley Walker Green, at the former Wollman (now Trump) Rink. CPIce started with eight skaters and one outdoor practice session each week on ice shared with Snowplow Sam tots!
Central Park Ice has grown steadily and our teams now practice at Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers and at Bryant Park.
In the 2014-2015 season, Central Park Ice teams brought home medals of every colors, and our Pre-Juvenile team made it to the finals at the 2015 Eastern Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships in Lake Placid. Central Park Ice teams swept the 2015 Empire State Winter Games in Lake Placid, with both our Beginner 2 and Pre-Juvenile teams winning silver and our Open Juvenile team winning gold to become Empire State Champions!
Our love for skating, New York style and sophistication, and sense of community are what make us Central Park Ice!

Our Parent Board
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.
For more information about synchronized skating, please visit US Figure Skating’s Synchro section.
Central Park Ice is registered with and competes under the auspices of United States Figure Skating. We are supported by Friends of Central Park Ice, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
