What is Synchro?

Synchronized Skating is a team discipline in figure skating. Formed in 1956 by Dr. Richard Porter, the sport was known as “precision skating” for the intricate moves skaters perform on the ice together. Synchronized skating offers skaters at all levels a chance to compete with a team within United States Figure Skating. Wisconsin Edge began with one team in 1985 by founder Jon Sorkan. Within a short period of time, The Wisconsin Edge gained national recognition when the teams moved to the Pettit National Ice Center.

Since 2019, Elena Rodrigues has been the Head Coach of Wisconsin Edge. Since then, we have grown from having 2 team levels competing out of the Milwaukee area to now 6 different team levels during the 2023-2024 season. Wisconsin Edge has earned Sectional Synchronized Skating Championship medals and earned qualification to the US Synchronized Skating National Championships at the Adult level.
