Italian teams faced each other in Aosta
Last Sunday, almost all Italian teams confronted themselves in Aosta, Italy, where the first national synchronized skating competition took place. For national teams, this was another opportunity to acquire the technical score required to join other international competitions.
In the national categories, three Cadetti, five Basic Novice, four Advanced Novice, five Junior and three Senior teams came from different regions to skate. All of them gave their best. Two weeks after Trento Cup, they worked and refined their programs. This time most of them acquired the necessary technical score (TES).
As a reminder, Basic Novices have to reach 15 TES and Advanced Novices 18 TES. Juniors teams must have a minimum of 13 technical points in the short program and 19 technical points in the free. For Seniors, it’s also 13 TES during the short but 25 during their free program.
L'olimpia Team ritorna a casa dalla prima gara della stagione ottenendo un podio per tutte le sue categorie: 🔸MIXED AGE UNDER 15 ➡️ 1' classificate 🔸MIXED AGE OVER 15 ➡️ 2' classificate 🔸BASIC NOVICE ➡️2' classificate Il risultato ottenuto è stato soddisfacente per tutte le squadre ma è solo l'inizio, da domani si riprenderà a lavorare ancora più motivate per raggiungere nuovi obbiettivi!
In Basic Novice division, only Shining Blades and Olimpia Team did enough points to compete internationally. Crazy Splinters were very close with a TES of 14,35 points. The first three Advanced Novices also passed the 18 TES.
By Juniors, four teams surpassed the minimum TES during the short and free program. In Seniors, Hot Shivers and Flying Angels did more than 13 TES (short) and 25 TES (free).

This competition was also for open categories. In this segment, there were three Juvenile, seven Mixed Age (Under 15) and three Mixed Age (Over 15) teams participated in the event.
This year Italy have more teams both in Open and National categories. That means that synchronized skating is a growing sport !
For the first time, we had a surprise guest, Team Zazous from France took part in the event as a non-competing squad. They presented both short and free programs to the public which was very entertained.
