About Us

The Wisconsin Edge Synchronized Skating Teams began with one team in 1985 under founder and coach Jon Sorkan. Within a short period of time, the Wisconsin Edge gained national recognition when the teams moved into the Pettit National Ice Center, one of the few Olympic Training Centers in the nation.

The Wisconsin Edge has always embraced a proud tradition of excellence. In 1997, the Wisconsin Edge earned their first medal at the National Precision Skating Championships in Syracuse, NY after placing 2nd in the Intermediate division. Since then, Wisconsin Edge teams have gone on to medal at both the Midwestern and National Championships across multiple divisions of U.S. Figure Skating’s synchronized skating program. Most recently, Wisconsin Edge’s Preliminary team won the 2015 Midwestern Championships.

Wisconsin Edge teams are a vital part of the Wisconsin Figure Skating Club. Comprised of skaters and their parents, Wisconsin Edge educates and trains skaters in the sport of synchronized skating and enables them to successfully compete in local, state, and regional competitions.

Through active participation, skaters learn:

  • Self-discipline
  • Responsibility
  • Persistence
  • Goal setting
  • Sportsmanship
  • Work ethic

Skills learned increase self-esteem, which positively impacts all other aspects of the skater’s life.

Wisconsin Edge fields synchronized skating teams at all skill levels, from beginners to experienced skaters to adult skaters.
