    And it's confirmed that pairs will not be allowed to compete in both junior and senior grand prixs next season on page 2.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    For all this talk of the US not having the talent they once had we've maxed out the slots in all 4 disciplines. So there must be some talent in the pipeline even though as we know a good Junior skater doesn't mean success as a Senior.

    Yes, I think that goes without saying.

    It would be beyond ridiculous and completely unnecessary for Sui/Han to compete again on the junior circuit. I'm not a fan, but they're clearly one of the top ten teams internationally, and the improvements they need to make require more exposure and comparisons to the top seniors.

    For D/F, are they eligible for a GP other than as a host pick? Is he age-eligible for JGP this coming year? I'd expect that the US would give them at least a Senior B and probably a host pick if they elect (or are forced) onto the senior circuit.

    I thought D/F said they are going Senior next season.

    Returning to JGP (not listed in the initial selections for the Senior Grand Prix published on 5/21/12)...

    MEN: Han Yan CHN, Joshua Farris USA, Jason Brown USA

    LADIES: Satoko Miyahara JPN, Risa Shoji JPN

    PAIRS: Yu/Jin CHN, Davankova/Deputat RUS, Denney/Frazier USA

    DANCE: Stepanova/Bukin RUS, Aldridge/Eaton USA, Yanovskaya/Mozgov RUS, Papadakis/Cizeron FRA

    ETA the following that was posted in the Senior Grand Prix Assignments thread:

If there is a rule change and she becomes ineligible because of her age, she will just withdraw and be replaced. She still can get into the Junior Grand Prix.

    Last year they were just prior to the competitions beginning, if I remember correctly.

    They are usually announced 4 weeks before the event. Always have been.

    There is no announcement.

    Federations just enter the skaters they want to the events they are eligible to enter skaters in.

    ISU doesn't have to decide on anything.

    That's the deadline for countries to submit "Entries by number."

    From the JGP Announcement:
    b) Entries by Names (Competitors and Judges)
    Entries by names of Competitors and Judges must be made through the Members simultaneously to the Organizing Committees concerned, the ISU Secretariat, the Chair of the Sports Directorate and the ISU Event Coordinator
    not less than 31 days before the first draw of the respective individual event.
    Re-posting from the Grand Prix Assignments thread some of the JGP age-eligible returning skaters/teams:

    So the USA will send at least 6 teams to Junior Grand Prix events -- possibly more if a team with an early assignment has no hope of qualifying for the Jr. GP Final.

    Glancing at the International Selection Pool at http://usfsa.org/Athletes.asp?id=447 we currently have listed:

    Junior Grand Prix / International experience:
    Aaron & Settlage – turns 20 in July
    Calalang & Sidhu – turns 21 in October
    Denney & Frazier – turns 20 in November
    Oltmanns & Santillian – he turned 20 in February
    Simpson & Blackmer – he turns 21 in December
    Pfund & Reiss**Given Challenge Cup international this spring

    Listed in the International Selection Pool, but have not yet competed on the Junior Grand Prix:
    de la Mora & Wilson – Nationals = Junior 8th, 114.27 – age?
    Goldberg & Dolkiewicz – Nationals = Junior 10th, 108.99 -- he’ll turn 20 in July
    Zaitsev & Stevens – Nationals = Novice 4th, 107.70 (Novice program - scores not 100% comparable to Junior)

    And then there are all of the new couples that form over the summer, who may take the summer competitions by storm.

    Duarte/Grafton have aged out of ISU Junior events - she is 19 now.

    Why are Jason and Joshua not going Senior this year? Big mistake if they want to even have a chance to make the Olympic team in less then two years. Especially since the US men are underwhelming at the moment. They could have shot up the US ranks with the mediocrity that the men are right now.

    Disappointed to see Yan Han's name here. I should really be doing the GP. There's no competition for him in JGP and there's little he can gain but a lot he can lose by staying in JGP. I wish the Chinese Federation knew what they are doing.

    I guess Farris and Brown are not assigned to the GP because there aren't enough slots for the American men (I'm not very familiar with how GP is assigned). Brown staying junior kind of makes sense since he doesn't have a triple axel yet.
