Synchronized Skating

The Chicago Red Line is the newest Synchronized Skating team in the city of Chicago, representing this amazing city’s south side with pride!


Chicago Red Line Synchronized Skating Teams

Morgan Park Sports Center is the home of the Chicago Red Line Synchronized Skating teams. Our coaching staff brings over 50 years of experience and love for the team sport which builds character, cooperation, commitment, as well as skating skills. Skating in this organization is based on fun and learning. We want every skater to look forward to practice, work hard, and take pride in their efforts and successes. In the process, each skater will learn how to be creative, confident, and work toward a common goal. The team will also provide individuals with opportunities to lead, as well as to support their fellow skaters.

For those who are new to the sport, synchronized skating continues to be one of the most popular disciplines in figure skating. The program includes elements such as circles, lines, intersections, wheels, blocks and creative elements, and the objective is to blend skating elements such as footwork, jumps and spins into these formations, so the skaters look like one unit as they perform. It is truly a spectacular sport to watch and participate in!

Synchronized Skating is a competitive team sport, made up of 8 – 16 skaters who perform a program together. Levels range from beginner to World Championship level competitions. We are proud to field THREE teams this season, for the first time: Aspire 1, Aspire 2, and Aspire 3! Our competitive teams will compete in multiple local and travel competitions for the 2024-2025 season, perform in the MPSC Winter Exhibition “It’s Snowtime”, and will finish off with a performance in our annual Spring Ice Show.


Interested in joining us? We accept skaters who are in Snowplow 3 and up, and ages 5 – 16. Please email Synchro Director, Kathy Janik for more information: !
