DC EDGE was formed in the spring of 2008 through the partnership of the Ice Force One Masters and Pentagon Adult teams. It was created with the intent of establishing a comprehensive, competitive synchronized skating program for skaters of all ages and skill levels. In 2009, DC EDGE expanded from adult only teams to include a beginner program for younger skaters, and in three short years, managed to grow from three to eleven teams. 

In the spring of 2014, DC EDGE and The Capitol Steps Synchronized Skating programs joined forces to strengthen DC area synchro. Our mission is to cultivate strong developmental programs in both Virginia and Maryland feeding into nationally competitive qualifying level teams. In our first season (2015), we succeeded in qualifying five teams to US Nationals and won six Eastern Championship titles.

DC EDGE fields 17 teams including exhibition, synchro skills, preliminary, pre-juvenile, open juvenile, juvenile, intermediate, novice, junior, masters, and adult. Our teams have brought home numerous National and Sectional medals, including seven National Championships.  With dedication, commitment and passion, we continue to strive to become one of the strongest synchro programs in the country.
