About the team:
As outlined by U.S. Figure Skating, the Preliminary division consists of 8-20 skaters all of whom are 13 years of age or younger. All skaters must have passed their Preliminary Skating Skills test to be eligible to compete on this sectionally competitive team.
Team Excel Preliminary practices twice a week and does require a larger level of commitment than our Aspire levels. The Preliminary team participates at regional competitions and exhibitions throughout the season, showcasing their hard work and dedication at each event. As the first step in our competitive pipeline, Team Excel Preliminary continues to work on the fundamental skills of synchro and has a history of strong showings within the division, which includes winning 4 Eastern Sectional Championship medals.
The next step for Preliminary skaters who are ready to transition up our competitive pipeline are our Juvenile and Open Juvenile teams!
