It's all about Teamwork in ISI Skating and in life! It's about Teamwork in ISI ice skating

You’re always part of a team in Ice Sports Industry (ISI) skating, since rink teams are the foundation of all ISI competitions. When you compete in any ISI competition, you earn participation points and placement points for your rink team. The more points that skaters from your facility accumulate, the greater your team’s chance of becoming the overall team champion for the event.

In addition to your rink team, perhaps you skate on a synchronized or production team, or in a Team Compulsory or Family Spotlight event. It’s about teamwork in skating — and in life — and when you work well with others, you gain the tools for success.
