The Fond du Lac Blades Junior Team needs your help! We are a synchronized figure skating team based in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, with team members from around the state.
Synchronized skating is a popular discipline both within U.S. Figure Skating and around the world. It is a team sport in which 8-20 skaters perform a program together, combining skill, precision, speed, and grace. While not yet as well-known as some other skating disciplines, synchronized skating is one of the fastest growing ice sports in the world. There are approximately 600 synchronized teams registered with U.S. Figure Skating, and nearly 5,000 athletes participate annually in the synchronized skating sectional championships.
Top-performing teams at the highest (junior and senior) levels of the sport have the opportunity to earn a berth to the U.S. Synchronized Skating Team, or TEAM USA. The Fond du Lac Blades have been named as one of only six junior level teams in the country being considered for TEAM USA in the 2017-18 competition season, and we were recently selected to represent the United States of America at the Mozart Cup competition in Salzburg, Austria, January 25-28, 2018. This is a tremendous honor, and the culmination of a dream for many of our skaters and coaches.
But dreams can be expensive, and we need your help! Your donations will be used to defer some of the costs of preparing for and participating as a TEAM USA program. We are very appreciative of contributions in any amount to help our girls realize their dream.
The names of all donors will be displayed on a banner in our home ice rink, the Blue Line Family Ice Arena, during the 2017-18 season. As an additional incentive, for all donors at the Bronze level or above, we are offering a plaque stating “Proud Donor to Team USA” with a picture of the team that we hope you will display with pride. Additional advertising of your support will include recognition at our annual spring ice show, and on our website at fondybladessynchro.com.
