Team del Sol Honored at Annual Meeting

At the SDFSC Annual meeting, Senior Team del Sol were honored for the accomplishments in the 2015-2016 season.  Karin Sherr from USFSA presented the team with plaques to remember the accomplishment of representing Team USA at Trophy d’Ecosse in Dumfries, Scotland, winning an International Gold Medal and two most entertaining performance awards.

Synchronized Skating Opportunity

SDFSC is proud to have 18 skaters that are now International Gold Medalists!

Our Senior Team del Sol was not only chosen to represent Team USA internationally, but they won the Gold medal at the 2016 Trophy D’ Ecosse Championships in Dumfries, Scotland as well as two “Most Entertaining Performance” Awards!

These skaters came from different backgrounds; some from Ladies & Men’s Singles, some from Ice Dance & Pairs and others started out directly in the Synchronized Skating discipline.

There are still opportunities for you to join and strengthen our 2016-2017 Senior Team del Sol.  Contact:

Synchronized Skating Season concludes at US Nationals

The synchronized skating season concluded in Kalamazoo, MI at the US Synchronized Skating Championships.  Some teams endured more than 24 hours of travel time due to snow storms in the mid-west and battled various injuries and still delivered respectable performances:

Senior Team del Sol earned 7th
Novice Team del Sol earned 10th
Intermediate Team del Sol earned 9th

Congratulations to all the coaches, skaters, managers and families for another great season.
