Did you know?!
We are very proud of our National Blades Synchro teams for having beautiful clean skates at the Eastern Synchro Sectional in Worcester MA.
Our Pre-Juvenile team finished in 5th place in their qualifying round. They did not advance to the final round.
Open Juvenile finished in 4th place in their qualifying round. They advanced to the final where they placed 11th overall.
Most importantly we had a great time at sectionals, and can’t wait to have try outs and spring training where we can welcome new members and get started on next season!
