Hockey camp teaches Nugget and his friends some important lessons about good sportsmanship. Nugget McDonald has been looking forward to his first Christmas Break Hockey Camp for months. And now that school's finally out, he's ready to spend a solid week learning from a pro - Danny Holbrook of the Vancouver Canucks! But because Mom was late signing him up, instead of working with his NHL hero, and most of his pals from the Cougars, Nugget will be training on another team. The good news: the coach is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. The bad news: Coach won her medals in women's hockey. Nugget can't believe that his team, with a female coach, could possibly beat Danny Holbrook's team in the game at the end of the week. But with Coach Katie Gunnar at the helm, Nugget and his friends are headed for a big attitude adjustment.

JT is thrilled when his dad steps in to lead the team - but his teammates have a harder time adjusting to the new coach. Suddenly practice time isn't fun anymore, they're fighting among themselves, and they're devastated when they lose a game that should have been an easy win. Can the Cutter Bay Cougars get back on track before the season ends?

Can these twin brothers find a way to get along with the new twins in town? Thanks to solid teamwork from fraternal twins Russ and Owen Evans, the Pioneers basketball team is tearing up the competition. But a pair of transfer students ("real" twins Mitch and Marcus Matthews) are about to give the Evans boys a run for their money. Smart, athletic, and identical, the Matthews are a basketball powerhouse, wowing the crowds while Russ and Owen are forced to fight for court time. When Marcus suffers a sidelining injury and Mitch falters during a big game without him, a sympathetic Russ decides to take a chance. After all, his Masters of the Mind team needs a new member for Regionals, and trying something new may help Marcus find his own identity. And when the Pioneers prepare to battle their biggest rival, Owen knows the guys need all the help they can get, including Mitch. But does he have enough time to turn half a double threat into a complete competitor?

Steven White is a perennial new-kid-in-town, avid snowboarder and occasional "white" liar. But at his new school, when his plan for instant popularity backfires, a humbled pro-snowboarder gives him a crash course in being himself. Seventh-grader Steven White's family has just moved - again - this time to Oregon. The upside is that there is lots of great snowboarding. But Steven dreads having to start over in yet another new school. So he devises a scheme to instantly boost his popularity: he tells his classmates that he's champion snowboarder Cody White's cousin and the friends will come to him. Of course it's only a matter of time before the White lie unravels, the kids shun him, and Steven finds himself facing the worst, loneliest Winter Break ever. Then he meets pro-snowboarder D-Day Davis on the slopes. D-Day is hiding out after a disastrous X-Games appearance. While Steven yearns to be a pro snowboarder, D-Day just wants to be a normal teenager again. But Steven doesn't respect Danny's request to stay under the radar, and soon their friendship is in jeopardy. Can D-Day show Steven that all he needs to do is be himself? And can Steven help his hero get his mojo back?
