Synchro teams from the Bradford Synchronised Skating Academy have been shortlisted in the "Team of the Year" category for the Women in Sport North Awards. Those skaters come from the West and North Yorkshire region, in England.
"We are absolutely delighted that Bradford Synchronised Skating Academy has been shortlisted in the Women in Sport Awards. We offer a truly inclusive sporting experience across all age ranges allowing young people the opportunity to continue their sport into adulthood while providing the opportunity for those who may find the sport later in life the opportunity to enjoy the sport with others both competitively and non-competitively. The Academy has progressed significantly over the years and we look forward to the upcoming competition season," explained Adrian Jack, one of the coaches.
