About Synchronized skating
Synchronized skating is characterized by teamwork, speed, intricate formations and challenging step sequences. Synchronized skating also has its own official Synchronized skating World Championships. This discipline was born in Michigan in early 1954, the team "Hockettes" was started to entertain the public during hockey games and has improved to become the fastest growing discipline in figure skating. In synchronized skating there exists six different categories, including seniors, juniors, novice, juvenile, adults and mixed-age. A complete team consists of 16 competing skaters and 4 alternates. Seniors and juniors compete with a short program and a free program. Other categories compete only with a free program. The programs consists of different types of elements, including, intersections, wheels, circles, blocs and lines, which are combined with different free skating moves and steps.

History of Team Boomerang
Team Boomerang was first created in 1998. The team skated together for two years but due to lack of skaters it disappeared and the junior team Convivium was started instead. However, in 2005 a new team was put together with brand new skaters and Team Boomerang was born for the second time. From then on, the team has improved with better results every year. Our best achievement is an 8th place at World Championships 2011, in Helsinki Finland, and 2012 in Gothenburg Sweden. This is the best ranking ever for a Sweden 2 team. Theese last few years we have taken big steps forward as a team and with our results and that have encouraged us to work hard to deliver the best we can even this year.

Motto: "Boomerang always comes back!"
