Local Synchronized Skaters Start New Year with a Bang

Mennen Synchronized Skaters skate in various charity events and competitions.

Precisely Right Synchronized Skating Teams started the New Year with a bang.  On Jan. 5 at CitiPond, Bryant Park in New York City, the junior team, consisting of 20 middle and high school aged girls from all over the tri state area, skated in “Sing & Skate Against Breast Cancer” with Winter Olympians, Kimmie Meisner, Emily Hughes, Nicole Bobek and Jo Jo Starbuck. Precisely Right was honored to be asked to skate for such a great cause with these Olympians.

While the junior team exhibited in NYC, the Pre-Juvenile and Open Adult teams took on the fierce competition at the Colonial Classic Synchronized Competition in Lowell, MA. Both teams skated beautifully and the judges agreed as the pre-juvenile team was awarded the silver medal in a very competitive group.

In addition to these events, the pre- juvenile and beginner teams exhibited on Dec. 29 at the annual Sno-ball Classic at Mennen Arena to an enthusiastic crowd.  The Sno-ball Classic is always special to the skaters as they get to perform locally for family and friends.

Coming up for Precisely Right is the Junior World Qualifier in Fraser, MI.  The junior teams from all over the U.S. compete to see who will represent the US in the Junior World Synchronized Championships. At the end of January is the Eastern Sectional Synchronized Competition for all teams except Beginner. Over 2,400 skaters from all over the East Coast will meet up in Lake Placid for this year’s event. Mennen Arena and Precisely Right was the host in 2009. The Beginner Team will make their debut competing for the very first time at the Winter Escapade in South Mountain later this month.


Precisely Right Synchronized Skating Teams represent the Skating Club of Morris, a non-profit figure skating club based out of Mennen Arena in Morris Township, New Jersey.   Try-outs for the teams are held in March and intro classes to synchronized skating are held quarterly.  Precisely Right Teams have won numerous titles and have advanced to the national championships on many occasions.
