Intro

Intro had a blast at their first Pep Rally! Lights, Camera, Action! They loved the hair, the make-up, skating their new program and watching all of the Skyliners lines! They can't wait to keep working hard!
Beginner

These Beginner girls WORKED and WORKED the crowd for the debut of their Car Wash program. Sparkling on the ice with big smiles, they were proud of their performances! It was so fun for them to cheer on all the Skyliners lines! Big congrats on their first Gold medal at the Essex Synchro Classic!
Central Park Beginner

Central Park Beginner had so much fun at Pep Rally! They loved their new shimmery dresses and were excited to take the ice. For many of the skaters, it was the first time performing in front of an audience and they did a great job!
After the show, they headed to the Pep Rally dinner where they danced with their teammates and made new friends from other lines. Big congrats on their first Gold medal at the Essex Synchro Classic!
New Jersey Beginner

These girls DID JUST WANNA HAVE FUN! They wowed the crowd with their fun and fast program! They loved watching all the Sky teams! Big congrats on their first Gold medal at the Essex Synchro Classic!
Pre-Preliminary

The Pre-Preliminary line had a great time bonding during their team building event at Lucky Penny’s Pottery. The girls also enjoyed showing off their routine at the Pep Rally as they giddy-upped across the ice with big smiles. The Pre-Pre line will continue to train hard for their upcoming season. Thanks to their supportive coaches and line moms, the girls lassoed a Silver medal at their first hoedown at Essex! Go Skyliners!
Preliminary

The Preliminary line debuted their J’adore Paris program at Pep Rally and it was très bon ooh la la! They are practicing hard on and off the ice, skating fast and making up their own team song. Their competition debuts at Essex and Boston Classic brought them two Gold medals. Go Prelim, you CAN-CAN do it! Go Skyliners!
New Jersey Preliminary

These girls were thrilled to debut their HOT HOT HOT program - fast and sharp! Their striking dresses, and neat and clean skating were super impressive! They captured Gold at their home rink in Essex, New Jersey and Bronze at the Boston Classic! Shake Shake Shake, Skyliners!
Pre-Juvenile

The Pre-Juv “Pink Ladies” kicked off with two fantastic “Greased Lightening” fast skates at Pep Rally!! All their hard work at practice shows they are coming together like “rama lama ka dinga da dinga dong!” It’s clear that Pre-Juv is shaping up to have an “electrifying” competition season! The team is bonding and their connection is shining through on and off the ice! They are wishing all of SkyNation a wonderful season! Big congrats on their back-to-back Gold medal performances at Essex and Boston Classic!
Juvenile

Wow! What a great Pep Rally! Juvie showed off their fab new dresses and program! Months of hard work culminated in the Pep Rally celebration, and the Juvenile line sailed through two fantastic performances. They dazzled parents, relatives and friends and made Coaches Natalie and Nikki proud with their Navy debut! Recently, when a local animal shelter put out a plea for donations, the girls immediately answered the call!! The shelter needed blankets to keep their animals warm in the winter. The Juvenile girls not only gathered blankets, but also beds, food and toys, over 250 pounds of supplies in all!! They were able to see a video of the pups and kitties using the donations, which made the donations all the more meaningful! Coach Natalie’s pup even made a special appearance!  The Juvenile line made a splash at their first competition, earning Gold at the Boston Classic! Go Navy!
Intermediate

After an exciting debut at the Skyliners Pep Rally, it was Sky Time at the Boston Classic, where our Intermediate line did us proud. Their Witches of Eastwick program earned a well-deserved Silver medal in their flight of 12 teams. Excitement is already building for Porter Classic, where they look forward to hitting the ice for their second competition of the season.
Novice Black

At Pep Rally, Novice Black presented their unforgettable program to all of their friends and families. The team toiled to capture the dainty, whimsical character of the music and blend the choreography into the effervescent fabric of imagination, child play and creativity. All skaters were determined to give their best performance, and their efforts and the harmony of their movement captured the wonder of Neverland, a place always accessible to those who believe. The main focus for the next month is to advance the technical quality of the elements. Their Gold medal at Boston Classic was a great debut for the season!
Novice Blue

What a magic carpet ride! Novice Blue flew in to Terry Conners Rink and floated across the ice as they showcased this season’s Aladdin program. In preparation for the Pep Rally, the girls worked hard at each and every practice to prepare for the big day! In early October, they also spent time off the ice at a fun team-bonding event, which included dinner, watching the movie “Aladdin,” and a sleepover for most! The girls definitely enjoyed the evening together and look forward to spending more time together throughout the season. Novice Blue experienced “a whole new world” on the West Coast, where they took home the Gold at the Fall Classic! And then the following weekend, onto the next competition, where they earned Bronze at the Boston Classic! 
Junior

Junior gave breathtaking performances of their long and short programs for their Skyliners friends and families at Pep Rally. Their dresses are absolutely stunning, each unique and absolutely perfect for both programs' themes. After the exhibition, they hurried off to the Pep Rally dinner where they had fun at the caricature booth, fondly showing off their mementos from the evening. The following week, they traveled to Irvine, California, where they earned Silver at their first international competition representing Team USA. Go Junior! Go Skyliners!
Senior

Senior had an amazing Pep Rally! Their skating captivated the crowd and the performance of their Queen-themed long program received a standing ovation! After the exhibition, they attended the dinner where they danced with the younger lines and truly had a fabulous evening. They debuted their programs for the packed audience at California Cup, the first international competition of the season, and took 5th place! Go Senior! Go Skyliners!!
19 YEARS
OF SKYLINERS
Skyliners was established in 2001 by a group of parents who wanted to create the most competitive synchronized skating club in the tri-state area. In that first year, the team had three lines - Preliminary, Juvenile and Intermediate. Nineteen seasons later, Skyliners has grown into one of the top synchronized skating teams in the country, now 14 lines and 240+ skaters strong. While the majority of the skaters reside in the tri-state area, we also have skaters from California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. Our resume of achievements includes 29 Eastern championships, 15 National championships, 8 International gold medals, historic back-to-back Junior Worlds Silver and Bronze medals....and 13 years designated TEAM USA.
