Join an AEU team - 2022-2023 TEam Placement Sessions

Welcome to the information page for 2022-2023 Season Team Placement Sessions for Arctic Edge Unity Synchronized Skating Teams. These placement sessions function similar to a team tryout, but are designed to allow for additional skill-building, flexibility, and value for participating skaters:

  • To get the most accurate team placement, skaters are encouraged to attend ALL of their group's skills sessions (at minimum, they are required to attend half of their sessions)

  • Groups are broken down by skill/test levels (see below for groupings)

  • Within 1-2 weeks before team placements begin, you will receive a confirmation email confirming your specific group/times and any additional details for arrival.

Team placement sessions are open to skaters of ALL skating levels, age, and experience levels - advanced, developmental, and beginner skaters all welcome.

 

If you are unable to participate in the placement series for health or scheduling reasons, but would still like to be placed with a 22-23 team, please contact ArcticSynchro@gmail.com.

+ ALL SESSIONS TAKE PLACE AT ARCTIC EDGE ICE ARENA: 46615 Michigan Ave, Canton, MI 48188 +
