As a club sport, we are allocated a small portion of money each year to help cover the cost of such an expensive sport, but each year it becomes more and more difficult to keep our program running. Each season we must cover the cost of renting ice time at Compton Family Ice Arena, traveling, renting hotel rooms, purchasing dresses, and registering for competitions. This past season we even had to fly to Portland, Oregon in order to compete. The Notre Dame Synchronized Skating Team has been quite successful, with four consecutive gold medals at the Midwestern Sectional Championship. Our recent transition to the Collegiate Division has only increased the cost for each skater, with increased ice rental and entry fees. It is very difficult to fund such an expensive program while attending college, but we have been doing everything we can to find ways to continue practicing, travelling, and competing. It is also greatly due to the help of generous supporters like you that our team has been able to grow and succeed for the last 19 years. We would be forever grateful for any assistance you could offer our club this season.
