2020 - 2021 Shooting Stars Preliminary Academy
Head coach: Erika Hoffman
Assistant Coach: Tessa Hedges
Hayden Synchronized Skating's Shooting Stars Preliminary team competes regionally while preparing skaters for a move to the Shooting Stars Pre-Juvenile and Juvenile teams. This year’s Preliminary team comprises skaters in the age group of 8 to 12-years-old and live in the greater Boston area.
Each season, these athletes work individually on U.S. Figure Skating tests while mastering synchro skills in a fun, team environment. They also have opportunities to connect with athletes on National Competing Teams who love to share their joy of synchronized skating with developing skaters.
The Shooting Stars Preliminary team practices twice a week, practices include both choreography and skills and drills. The skaters show off their progress by participating in exhibitions and local competitions throughout the season., culminating at the Eastern Synchronized Skating Sectional Championship. Our Shooting Stars Preliminary team is the 2017 and 2020 Pewter and 2018 and 2019 Bronze medalists at Eastern Sectionals.
