ROSE CITY CRYSTALS PFSC’S SYNCHRO TEAM
The Rose City Crystals is a non-profit organization. We are synchronized ice skaters led by Coach Sabrina Uribe-Ventrella and Crystal Uribe Schoelen. Synchronized skating, the fastest growing discipline of figure skating, is a team sport in which 8-24 skaters perform a program together. It is characterized by teamwork, speed, intricate formations, and challenging steps, which creates an amazing beautiful group performance on ice.
Coach and director Sabrina Uribe-Ventrella formed the Rose City Crystals in 2002 with sister and co-director Crystal Uribe Schoelen. What started as one team has grown to four synchronized skating teams. The synchronized skating teams enter in both ISI and USFS competitions.
The Rose City Crystals, have skated at the 2007 US National Championships in Nashville, Tennessee, the 2010 US National Championships in St. Paul, Minnesota, 2013 US National Championships in Plymouth, Michigan, and 2014 US National Championships in Colorado Springs. The Rose City Crystals have been recognized by Los Angeles Supervisor Michael Antonovich and Pasadena Councilman Steve Madison. For the 2010 Winter Olympics, the team performed for KTLA’s very own Winter Olympics opening ceremony after placing 1st at the United States Figure Skating sectional competition in Iowa. The Rose City Crystals are featured on the cover of the 3rd book in the Jazzicals Synchronized Skating Team Series, The White Rose Affair by Sharon Whitlock.
