Hayden Synchronized Skating’s senior-level athletes, the Haydenettes, compete at the highest level of figure skating both nationally and internationally. The 26 time U.S. National Champions and 5-time World Bronze Medalists are currently the most decorated U.S. team, and they work passionately to maintain their status as one of the top-ranked synchro teams in the world. The Haydenettes have represented the United States at every World Championship since its beginning in 2000, and their most recent U.S. Championship (in 2018) is their ninth consecutive one.
The 2017-18 Haydenettes range in age from 17 to 24 with hometowns in Connecticut, Colorado, Germany, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Most attend high school, college, or university and some also work in addition to their training schedules. What they all have in common is their desire to share their love of synchronized skating.
The team’s accomplishments make the Haydenettes sought after for team appearances, exhibitions, and corporate events. The team has appeared multiple times on NBC's TODAY show live from Rockefeller Centre and at The Holiday Tree Lighting at The Pond at Bryant Park televised by CBS-TV. They are also privileged to participate annually in An Evening With Champions - a figure skating exhibition to support cancer research and compassionate patient care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Each season, the Haydenettes work to earn assignments to represent the United States as Team USA at International Skating Union-sanctioned competitions, and they have competed throughout Europe and in Asia. This past season, the team traveled to Shanghai, China in November to represent the U.S. at the 2017 Shanghai Trophy where they finished fifth. In January they traveled to Neuchâtel, Switzerland to represent the U.S. at Neuchâtel Trophy 2018 where they finished third. One week later, the Haydenettes competed in the Leon Lurje Trophy in Gotheborg, Sweden where they finished first. After winning their ninth consecutive National Championship, the Haydenettes competed at the 2018 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships in Stockholm, Sweden where they finished in seventh place
