The Catamount Blades

The Catamount Blades is UVM’s competitive synchronized skating team. We are an Open Collegiate team under US Figure Skating and are primarily student run. Martha Harding, who coaches at several rinks in the Burlington area, is our part-time coach. We currently have 18 undergraduate skaters who practice twice a week, either on campus at Gutterson Fieldhouse or at a local rink. 

The team attends at least two competitions annually, one each semester. In the fall, we choose a competition in November. In the past, we have competed at the Thanksgiving Classic and the Boston Synchronized Skating Classic, both in Massachusetts. In January, we attend the Eastern Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships and
compete against other teams from around New England.

Tryouts are held each fall. We welcome all skaters regardless of level or synchro experience.

Please contact co-captains Jen Mitchell at or
Leslie VanDeMark at for more information about the team.
