As described on U.S. Figure Skating’s website, synchronized skating offers athletes the chance to compete with a team and learn the value of teamwork and camaraderie. Formed in 1956 by Dr. Richard Porter, the sport was known as precision skating for the intricate moves skaters perform on the ice together. U.S. Figure Skating held the first U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships in 1984 and the first World Synchronized Skating Championships in 2000. Today, there are about 600 registered synchronized teams in the United States.
Teams of eight to 20 skaters perform challenging formations and step sequences together, and competitions use the same judging system as singles, pairs and ice dance. As with other disciplines, all teams perform a free skate with required elements, and junior- and senior-level teams also perform a short program.

ABOUT US

Team Image Synchronized Skating Teams was founded by Sylvia Muccio, a passionate and creative woman whose spirit inspired many who knew her. She was a pioneer of synchronized skating in the NYC Metro area and was recognized by many for her passion and dedication to her team, as well as her skaters. 

 

Born in Chicago, Sylvia moved to New York in 1983 and began her coaching career at E.J. Murray's Skating Center in Yonkers, New York. There Sylvia collaborated with others to create elaborate skating shows which introduced the art of synchronized skating to young skaters. In 1987, she had her skaters perform at the annual Ice Show and from there, Team Image was born. 

 

Sylvia dedicated her life to the success of her skaters. In fact, her Intermediate line won the Gold Medal in 2009 at the U.S Synchronized Skating Championship while she watched from  home because she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Sylvia’s dedication and perseverance also led to her earning a PSA Master Rating.

 

Sylvia passed away in 2013 after a long battle with cancer. Her spirit is kept alive today through the hundreds of skaters that continue to skate not just on the Team that she founded but on other senior teams around the country.

CINDY KIM

Image Synchro has been led since 2013 by Coach Cindy Kim who skated herself for Team Image throughout high school. When Coach Kim attended college in the Boston area, she skated for the Haydenettes where she was Co-Captain and competed for Team USA World Team 1. An internationally-renowned coach and choreographer, Kim also collaborates with the Korean National Synchronized Skating Team as well as national teams in Italy.

 

Under Coach Kim’s leadership, Image has grown to 13 lines with more than 180 skaters. Her Junior line was named to Team USA in 2019 in its second year of existence. The Junior Team earned the bronze medal in their first international appearance in the Zagreb Snowflakes Trophy in Zagreb, Croatia and has also earned a silver medal for USA at the Lumière Cup in the Netherlands in January of 2022. In March of 2022, Cindy Kim's Junior Team USA won the U.S. Championships with a combined score of 192 points. 

 

Through Cindy Kim, our skaters have been taught to skate with integrity and grace. Her mission has always been to create resilient, confident and passionate leaders who excel on and off the ice. Image Synchro is committed to advancing Kim’s mission in the sport of synchronized skating by developing young and dedicated athletes.
