As the first NSW competition of the season, the Sydney Synchronised Festival is an important event that helps teams gauge their developing programs against competition prior to the State and National Championships. It took place over the weekend of the 15th and 16th of September at Penrith Ice Palace in Sydney. While a majority of the participating teams are based in NSW, there were a number of interstate teams present, most notably Adelaide Ice Magic from South Australia and Infusion from Western Australia.
The Australian competitive season kicked off over the weekend with Sydney Synch Festival - the only major interstate competition outside of the National Championships.
