National Competing Teams Progression - Junior and Senior

In addition to competition in the U.S., the Lexettes junior and Haydenettes senior teams represent the United States as Team USA at international competitions. Team USA athletes are dedicated, hardworking athletes who attend team practices 4-5 times per week in addition to their personal skating practice and instruction. Since the Team USA designation must be earned each year, we look for talented, experienced skaters from across the country for these teams. Read more about how the Team USA designation is earned here.

Prospective Lexettes, and Haydenettes athletes tryout together at the same session.  We strive to create teams comprised of the strongest skaters in teh sport of figure skating.  While a high level of competitive synchronized skating experience is typical, we welcome accomplished athletes from other figure skating disciplines as well.  Every year we have skaters who join us from organizations across and outside of the United States.  We are happy to answer questions about the ways our athletes from outside of Massachusetts have managed the logistics to participate in our training schedule.
