Synchronized Skating Club Amber
The senior category synchronized skating team, Amber, was founded in 2011. The team was composed of solo figure skating athletes who discovered a passion for this new sport in Latvia. In that very same season, Team Amber competed in the World Synchronized Skating Championship 2012.
To promote synchronized skating in Latvia, the society "Latvijas sinhronās slidošanas attīstībai" ("For the Development of Latvian Synchronized Skating") was established at the end of 2014. The society is committed to promoting synchronized skating in Latvia and overseeing the creation and management of synchronized skating sports teams in the skating club Amber.
Club Amber is not only the sole synchronized skating club in Latvia but also the Senior category team Amber is the Latvian National Team in synchronized skating. Synchronized skating club Amber has competed in various categories, including Juvenile, Junior B, ISU Junior, and ISU Senior. Currently, due to a generational change of athletes, the club consists of two teams: Juvenile Amberlight and Amber Junior.
Amber teams have showcased their talent on various international stages, including six ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships.
Club Amber organizes a skating school for children and adults, whether they have little or no previous skating skills. We also extend a warm welcome to foreigners interested in joining our skating school to acquire their first ice skating skills.
