2017 National Silver Medalist
The Mini Mates are the Hayden Synchronized Skating Team's juvenile level team. They compete in regional and national competitions. The athletes are 10 to 12 years old and mostly come from the greater Boston area. 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 intermediate or novice division.
The Mini Mates are the 2016 US National Pewter Medalist and earned their first US National Championship in 2015. From 2011-2014, the Mini Mates won four straight US National Bronze Medals. During the 2015- 2016 season, the Mini Mates won pewter, bronze, silver, and gold medals.
The Mini Mates give back to the community through their volunteer work. They raised more than $5000 collecting toys for the Jimmy Fund and collected food for Lexington Food Pantry.
