OXFORD, Ohio - With the competition schedule fast approaching, the Miami University synchronized skating Senior and Collegiate teams are showcasing their competitive programs for the fans in its annual exhibition at Steve `Coach' Cady Arena.

The RedHawks are hosting their Family Weekend and the performance begins at 3 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

Saturday's performance starts with a skills demonstration from the entire team. That's followed by the collegiate team showcasing their free skate, a Tina Turner medley. That leads to the Senior team's short program to the "Phantom of the Opera" by Lindsey Stirling.

After guest soloists from the Miami Skating Academy take to the ice, the Collegiate team returns to the ice with an encore of their free skate with the afternoon's performance concluding with the senior team's free skate, a Showgirls theme performed by various artists.

Miami's Collegiate team looks to recapture its national title after finishing second at nationals last year, which snapped its string of 12-straight national championships. The Senior team is eying a top-two finish at nationals to punch its ticket to the World Synchronized Skating Championships in Stockholm, Sweden.

The RedHawks' competitive schedule begins at the Diamond Classic in Mentor, Ohio on Nov. 4.
