About Us

We are Team Vizyon, the most decorated synchronized skating team in Turkey. We represent Vizyon Ice Sports Club and train in Ankara, Turkey. Our team is led by our dedicated Head Coach Zeynep Aydın. As Team Vizyon, we compete at the senior level for Turkish Ice Skating Federation and International Skating Union sanctioned competitions. We have inspired the flourishment of synchronized skating in Turkey, especially with our hard-working mindset. Since 2011, we hold the consecutive titles of Turkish National Champions and hope to continue our success in future competitions.


OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

Skaters on Team Vizyon senior recognize the level of sacrifice and commitment required to be on a world class team. Team Vizyon skaters not only have ambition, but the willingness to seize their dreams. Team Vizyon skaters are poised, organized, and use their time effectively. Team Vizyon: dream, drive, deliver.

Our Logo

As Team Vizyon, we are pleased to announce our new logo representing our new goals and hopes for the new year! The star is used as a light in the design, shining down on all of the letters just like our devotion to our team. Every letter gets their share of the spotlight, indicating synchronized skating is a team sport. The silver underlining under 'Team Vizyon' is drafted into the shape of a blade symbolizing our main element used when performing.
