Western Michigan University is home to two nationally ranked synchronized skating teams. The teams skate at Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and participate in numerous events throughout the year across the United States. This year, there are 21 skaters that make up the Collegiate team and 10 skaters that make up the Open Collegiate team. From 2007 to 2016, the dedicated graduates of WMU united to create the first-ever Adult Alumni synchronized skating team. The WMU Senior team was chosen to represent Team USA for 5 times in the team's history. All 4 of these teams have played crucial parts in promoting the sport of synchronized skating at Western Michigan University and throughout the country.

Western Michigan University is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is home to two synchronized skating teams that represent the University at competitions all over the United States and internationally. In addition to competitions, our skaters participate in ice shows, exhibitions, and community events to support other local organizations and skating clubs.

                Created in 1995, the synchronized skating program at WMU has a long-lasting tradition.  In 2004, the sport was cut from varsity status and funding due to budget cuts throughout the University.  This has had a substantial financial impact on the team but not the dedication of the collegiate athletes. The team is in its sixth year as a club sport and is a successfully student-run organization. 

                The WMU Skating Club consists of Collegiate and Adult synchronized skating teams.  The Collegiate team, made up of all full time WMU students, have a roster of over seventeen skaters.   Last season, the Collegiate team placed 5th at the National Championships in Portland, OR. The WMU alumni team shows the long-lasting dedication and pride for the University and skating program.

                During the 2018-2019 season, the teams will be competing at six competitions in various venues around the Midwest area. These include local competitions in Michigan, the Midwestern/Pacific Sectional Championships in Kalamazoo MI, and the National Synchronized Skating Championships in Plymouth MI.  

                As a club sport at WMU, we receive minimal funding from the school. Our organization has high costs associated with travel, ice time, and coaching expenses. These costs are paid for by the skaters and by fundraising throughout the year.  The Western Michigan University Synchronized Skating Teams would greatly value donations of any amount or items to support our club for the 2018-2019 season. All donations are tax exempt under our 501(c)(3) tax code.

                Your support of our organization would be greatly appreciated! On behalf of Bronco Skating, we would like to say “Thank You” for helping us and contributing to the WMU community.
