Synchro Clinic and Tryouts

2018-2019 Team Tryouts are mid-April

The Spring Skills and Stoking Clinic is designed for the beginner levels of synchronized skating. This class will be divided into three groups- Hockettes Introductory, Hockettes Synchro Skills, and Hockettes Preliminary. Groups will work directly with an instructor on the basics of synchronized skating. If your child has talked of skating with friends and improving their skills, this clinic is perfect!

Open to existing Hockettes team members AND Learn to Skate students who have passed Basic 3 or higher.

Cost: $75 for 7 weeks of classes (no drop-in)

Clinic Dates: March 24th, April 7th, April 14th, April 21st, April 28th, May 5th, and May 12th from 12:15pm-1:05pm

Registrations may be done on the AAFSC Office computers if needed.
