Team Excel promotes synchronized skating and prepares synchronized skating teams for national and international competition, encourages teamwork and sportsmanship, and supports skaters as they reach their full potential.
We are proud of our skaters and their accomplishments. It is inspirational to watch our skaters continue to develop their skills, and continue a passion for the sport while forming new friendships along the way. Team Excel offers a unique opportunity to develop synchronized skating skills and continue with coaches and friendships from beginner through collegiate. A few of our skaters who graduated High School last year, and who have trained with Merita for many years, are skating on the Team Excel Collegiate and Team Excel Senior teams while they attend the many wonderful colleges in the area.

Our skaters are from area towns and cities in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, and California.
Skating practices are held at The Skating Club of Boston, the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, Massachusetts and the Foxboro Sports Center.
