Skating as a team...
What was the first ever Synchro team?
When did Synchro Skating grow more popular?
A wheel is a bunch of skaters in their own little lines, but the first people in the lines form together and connect to make ether a four or two spoke rotating star.
A line is the easiest transition to visualize, a line is all of the skaters connected in a stright line doing multiple steps traveling down the ice.
Intersections are up to four little lines of skaters lineing up with the other line and going in between the hole the skaters make. http://www.usfsa.org/content/synchro%20fact%20sheet%202013%202014.pdf
