The Rose City Crystals is PFSC’s synchronized skating team. We are synchronized figure 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.  You can see our Junior Team’s free skate program at the 2016 U.S. Synchro Nationals here:

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 three synchronized skating teams. The synchronized skating teams enter in both ISI and USFS competitions.
