2020 - 2021 Haydenettes Academy
Head coach: Saga Krantz
Assistant Coach: Lee Chandler
Hayden Synchronized Skating’s senior-level athletes, the Haydenettes, compete at the highest level of figure skating both nationally and internationally. The 28 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 2020) was their eleventh consecutive one.
The 2020 - 2021 Haydenettes Academy team members range in age from 18 to 24 with hometowns in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Nevada, Virginia 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. In January they traveled to Saltzburg, Austria to represent the U.S. at the Mozart Cup where they finished in fifth place then proceeded to Sweden where they competed in the Leon Lurje Trophy in Gothenburg, Sweden where they finished third. After winning their tenth consecutive National Championship, the Haydenettes competed at the 2019 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships in Helsinki, Finland where they finished in sixth place overall.
