Last month, the Haydenettes Academy team, the Lexettes Academy team and the Ice Mates assembled in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire for a six-day boot camp. Every year, we look forward to this camp as a way to get to know our new members and bond as a team. Our main focus on the ice this year was to finish our long program that we had already started, and to start choreography on our short program. By the end of the camp, we were extremely pleased to have completed both programs and this inspired us to continue working hard moving forward. We were able to set some short term goals for “An Evening with Champions” and our U.S. Figure Skating monitoring session, as well as some long term goals for the entire season. We left Waterville Valley feeling tired and worn out, but also feeling that we had created a strong base for a successful season!
