Aberdeen Synchronised Skating Club celebrates showcase event at Linx Ice Arena


On the evening of Sunday 10 March, Aberdeen Synchronised Ice Skating Club held its end of season showcase at Linx Ice Arena which was deemed a huge success, raising almost £500 on the night.

To mark the end of the 2023/2024 season, the club’s five teams performed their routines to family, friends, invited guests and skaters interested in joining the club, with skaters ranging in age from 8 years old up to their most senior skater who is in her 70s.

Head coach, Sara Paterson, was delighted with how the evening went: “At the end of the season we invite all our families and friends down to the rink in an evening to see the end product of our hard work.

“This year Keith Heslop, CEO, and Lois Barnard, Group Operations Manager, from Sport Aberdeen also kindly attended and it’s great to have their support.

“Synchro sessions take place early morning and late at night so they tend to happen away from the public eye, so it’s nice to have an evening where the kids can show off all their hard work to what turned out to be a pretty big audience.”

“We also had some members performing solo routines. It really was a great showcase of the vast talent our club has produced and a testament to all the hard work they have put in over the year.”

The event comes at the end of a successful season for the club who came home from the Scottish Championships with 4 Scottish titles in pre-juvenile, basic novice, beginner and senior B.
