Welcome to the San Diego Shining Blades website. We are a competitive synchronized skating team based in San Diego, California. The season generally runs from March-February. Each year tryouts are held at he the San Diego Ice Arena (SDIA) after which the exact levels of teams will be determined by the age and skill level of skaters. The team then trains on basic skills, learns choreography, and competes in Southern California and in the annual Pacific Coast Sectional Championships.
