The U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships is an annual synchronized skating competition, sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating, held to determine the national champions of the United States. It was first held in 1984. Teams compete in eight levels: juvenile, intermediate, novice, junior, senior, collegiate, adult and masters.
