Potential Grand Prix Ladies

There are 33 ladies on the list including Miki Ando who did not compete last season but could still receive assignments and several skaters that competed as juniors and may choose to move up to seniors or return to the Junior Grand Prix.

There are 60 Grand Prix slots (including host picks) with 45 of the 60 slots filled from this list, meaning few skaters outside of top 12 finishers at worlds will be given a 2nd assignment unless they are given a host pick.  If some of these ladies choose to remain junior, more spots will be available. 

Note that this season the top 6 finishers at Worlds will not be able to compete at three events. 

The assignments will be released on May 21st.
