Since beginning as a 13 member Teen Introductory team in September 2001, the Mirror Images has grown in size and numbers. The season starts in late August and winds up in March. Mirror Images has seven competitive teams - Synchro Skills 1 through Open-Masters. Each team has assigned practice times on the ice and many of the teams have off-ice practices once or twice a month. Depending on team level, the skaters participate in physical workouts with Next Level Strength and Conditioning.
In addition to skating and competing together, the Mirror Images volunteer in the Rochester community and participate in many team building activities. Synchronized skating develops lifelong friendships, enhances artistry and performance, promotes leadership skills, encourages strength and fitness, and develops an individual's skating skills while participating in a team sport. Skaters become a tight knit group, a family, that supports and encourages each other.
Competitions and ice shows keep the Mirror Images busy from November to mid-March. The teams perform in Thomas Creek FSC shows and at local exhibitions. During the season, the teams participate in competitions throughout New York State and travel out-of-state.
