Novice Team del Sol competes in the third-highest synchronized figure skating IJS level. The athletes range in age from between 13 to 17 years old. The team’s mission is not only to compete strongly in the division, but also learning skills necessary to move into higher levels of execution and performance within synchro. Indeed, the Novice Team was created to challenge previous Intermediate skaters, after the team placed first and winning the Gold medal at the 2013 National Championships. Since then, Team del Sol has made a competitive impact on the Novice division. Their hard work and dedication continued through the 2015 National Championships, where they earned fifth in the nation honors.
