The 2017 Junior Grand Prix opens in the Southern Hemisphere in beautiful Brisbane, Australia and moves to Europe for the remaining six events.
Ted Barton will once again be calling the action — as well as the Junior Grand Prix Final in Nagoya, Japan, in December. You can watch all the action live on the ISU YouTube Channel.
Russia’s Alexandra Trusova, 13, will make her much anticipated debut in Brisbane. Reports out of Moscow indicate she has a technical arsenal that would rival any senior lady including the ability to land a quad. She, like so many outstanding Russian juniors over the years, is trained by Eteri Tutberidze.
Many new faces from many nations will grace the seven stages this season. Links for start orders, results, etc. for all the events will be posted on our website in advance of every competition.
