    Really sad to see that Tracy and Michael split up, but we knew that that was coming; it was just a matter of time. We'll see how Yuka will do with Alissa, but I can't imagine that she will be able to crack that nut.

    Most interesting of all is the fact that Leah Keiser, the reigning US Novice Champion who is only twelve and won't be 13 until mid-September is switching to Frank Carroll. This young lady has oodles of potential and is really a sweet kid. I can't wait to see how she does this year.

    Surely, that must be a typo in the release where it says Becky Bereswill is skating with Fedor Andreev. Isn't she skating with Trevor Young? Fedor's a little busy with the La Khok drama.

    Sad, but not surprising. I wonder if Michael will seek a new partner or just pursue singles.

    It will be interesting to see what Yuka can do with Alissa. I hope Alissa has a good season.

    Frank Carroll is getting busy.

    I interpreted that to mean that Fedor was coaching her. I guess he's a multi-tasker? But yeah, I was under the impression she was skating pairs with Trevor....but maybe not.

    Hmm, it's listed under the coaching changes and doesn't mention that she's now skating pairs. Does Fedor coach (in between the reported drama in his life )?

    AFAIK, Bereswill is planning to continue in singles (she will be starting college at the University of Michigan this summer). I don't believe she has officially announced a new partnership (yet).

    Oh, OK, thanks. Does anyone know if Trevor has found a new partner? From his Twitter, it sounds like he's training again.

    Ahh, thanks for the clarification. When I saw Johnny Johns, I just assumed pairs, which I guess sounds like it could still be a possibility.

    Sorry to hear the Castile/Okolski news, I was so excited when they both landed the 3sal at Nats. I thought this was a good omen for their future.

    I really enjoyed watching Leah this year during Ice Network's coverage of Novices, and she already has amazing technique on her jumps! I can't wait to see how she grows as a skater under Frank Carroll. Great news to hear!

    If skaters retire, do the tiers remain empty or can a skater in a lower tier move up?

    Before he returned to competitions, he did.

    Skaters are placed in a tier based on their accomplishment, so they wouldn't move up simply because a higher tier skater retired or a team split. I think the rule for moving up a level during the season is for reserve envelope skaters. If they medal at an international event, they go up to envelope C immediately and would be eligible for pro-rated funding.

    What about the teams that we know that they're most likely retired but still in the envelope, e.g. B/A, I/B. They will still receive the fund until they officially do not show up at the GP?? My understand was the fund was given quarterly which means these teams will still receive some money from USFSA??

    If they accept training funding from USFS, and then don't end up competing, they are required to give the money back to USFS.

    Me too. I liked them and hoped they'd continue.

    I'm really behind on my US skaters news. Are Castile/Okolski both out of skating, period?Also sorry about Summersett/Gilles. I forgot that Best/Young split but at least he *might* get a new partner(?). Sheesh, seems like half the people I've actually seen around DSC are splitting up/ leaving.

    I also agree it seems weird to see Mirai slightly below the "top tier," despite explanations of what that means.

    (And it's weird to hear about some other promising team/ skater quitting before I ever saw them. )

    Agghh, I missed the news about Summersett/Gilles. I know their results this year were disappointing but I really liked their 2009 programs, a lot.
