Started in 2000, UNH Synchronized Skating is now in its 16th season. Within the past few seasons, UNH Synchro has expanded dramatically, with the addition of an open collegiate team in the 2013-2014 season and our coaches, Samantha Mick in 2015 and Lauren Bishop in 2017. As a competitive venue for skating beyond high school, collegiate level synchro has provided skaters new and old to the sport a chance to be a part of a team while also representing their college or university. UNH’s strong athletic programs have made UNH a destination school for athletes from across the country, and UNH synchro hopes to build on this tradition of dedication and athleticism.
As a entirely student-run club sport here at UNH, we are comprised of hard working student athletes who find time to purse academic excellence as well as manage all aspects of a synchronized skating team. With an appointed governing board of skaters, we are responsible for everything from travel to ice time to recruitment. Our practice schedule works around academics and includes three practices a week, in our home rink the Whittemore Center Arena. In addition to on-ice practices, we also hold weekly off-ice sessions and group workouts. Over the course of the season we’ll will get a chance to represent UNH at competitions across the country, participate in university events, and partner with other UNH sport clubs and organizations to raise money for charity. As we seek to promote collegiate synchronized skating and uphold the values of UNH, we aim to create a community of teamwork, dedication, and friendship both on and off the ice.
