The Star Mates are the Hayden Synchronized Skating Team's intermediate level team. They compete in regional and national competitions. The athletes are 12 to 16 years old and comes from a number of different states. Each season, it is the team's mission to win U.S. National medals while learning the skills necessary to move up to either the novice or junior division.
The Star Mates are the 2015 U.S. National Silver Medalists. During the 2015-2016 season, the Star Mates won Bronze medals at the Boston Classic, Cape Cod Classic, and Colonial Classic. They did not qualify for Nationals for the first time in their five year history. In their first season at the Intermediate level, the Star Mates won gold at the 2012 National Championships.
The Star Mates give back to the community through their volunteer work. They have raised money by participating in a walk for Ovarian Cancer and raised more than $5000 collecting toys for the Jimmy Fund
