Team Amore’ 


Team Amore' Synchronized Skating Teams represent the Heartland Figure Skating Club in Independence, Missouri.

 Synchronized Skating is highly competitive US Figure Skating team sport involving 8-20 skaters per team. Not only does synchronized skating encourage skaters to work together as a team to achieve success, but it builds individual skating skills as well. Team Amore' synchronized skating teams began in January of 2010 with the goal of spreading synchronized skating throughout the Kansas City area. For the 2015-2016 season, Team Amore' has 3 competitive level teams: Open-Juvenile, Pre-Juvenile, and Beginner 1. We also offer Introductory level teams as a stepping stone for skaters who are just beginning or individuals who desire a recreational focus. This allows opportunities for skaters of all ages and skill levels to participate in synchronized skating.
