We are excited to announce that the Haydenettes Elite Camp 2019 will once again be held in Marlborough, MA. The Elite Camp is a unique training experience, with limited enrollment, designed for advanced skaters that offers each participant the opportunity to skate with the 26 time U.S. National Champions and 5 time Bronze World Medalists, the Haydenettes. The Camp includes both on-ice and off-ice sessions that place emphasis on footwork, edge quality, speed, power, development of formation, and transitions.

The 2019’s Haydenettes Elite Camp features Anne Schelter, author of the popular Annie’s Edges skating book and programs, and Saga Krantz, the Head Coach of the Haydenettes and Director of Synchronized Skating for Hayden Synchronized Skating. Together, the coaches will test, challenge and improve the skating skills of the elite skater.

Anne Schelter is a world-renowned specialist in the training of edge control, acting and choreography for figure skaters and skating teams. She has given seminars for the ISU Development Programs, choreographed programs for singles and synchronized skating teams and presented numerous workshops for Theatre On Ice programs.
