They skate anywhere from three to seven days a week, in a variety of disciplines including freestyle, dance, and Theatre on Ice. Now they will be competing in their first high school competition at the 2008 High School Team Open on April 27 at the Nashoba Valley Olympia in Boxborough, MA, and at the North Shore Open, on June 1. They each may be competing individually as well as in team maneuvers and team spin events.
