Whether you’re a skater who became an adult, or an adult who became a skater, the Washington Ice Emeralds have a team for you.

We have three adult teams covering a range of skill and commitment levels, and we would encourage all skaters considering joining to consult which team might be a great fit for you.

As we are a United States based organization, we list the USFS tests for reference. Our coaches are happy to work with skaters to convert from other testing systems.

Intro Adult

This team is a great option for adult skaters who are building confidence on ice and want to try synchronized skating, are not yet comfortable competing in qualifying competitions, or are unable to tackle the time commitment of the other adult teams. They have previously participated in a local competition as Open Masters. This team has open monthly enrollment, and you can register for next month’s series here. The minimum test requirement is Basic Skills Adult 5.

Open Masters

This team is about building our synchro skills towards our greater aspirations and sharing camaraderie. The team during seasons not affected by a pandemic competes in Sectionals, qualifies for Nationals every year, and performs in local exhibitions. They have historically competed at the Masters and Adult III (Canada) levels.

While auditions for 2022-2023 season have passed, we are still forming our teams and would be happy to have new skaters join!

Open Adult

This team is made up of skaters from various skating backgrounds, some who had life take them off the ice as they relocated, families grew, or work became a focus. We love providing a welcoming community back onto the ice in the Seattle area! The team typically competes in two competitions a season and performs in local exhibitions. They have historically competed at the Adult, Open Adult, and Adult II (Canada) levels.
