Potential Grand Prix Pairs

There are 30 pairs on the list including several that have split but could still receive assignments.


There are 48 Grand Prix slots (including host picks) with 42 of the 48 slots filled from this list.  Some of these teams may elect to remain junior and once the split teams are removed, there will be more opportunities for second assignments.  Note that this season the top 6 finishers at Worlds will not be able to compete at three events.  Also, teams will no longer be able to compete on both the Junior and Senior Grand Prix.  

The assignments will be released on May 21st.
