    Eastern Challenge: PEI, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Quebec, Eastern Ontario, Central Ontario

    Western Challenge: Western Ontario, Northern Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and Nunavet, Saskatchewan, British Columbia & Yukon.

    Senior Challenge events: Senior skaters from both east and west compete in one large semi-Cdns event and vie for the very few spots ...12 pair teams...14 dance teams....18 men and 18 women....including last season's medallists, JGP finalists, and those with a SGP who all go straight to Canadians and reduce the number of available slots to those seniors forced to go to Challenge. This is the first year of a senior Challenge event.....seniors used to go straight to Canadians if they qualified through sectionals......

    Which makes Canadians a more elite competition the way national events should be.

    Does anyone know where there is a list of competitiors going to the Challenges? SC should know who they are by now and I would have thought a list would be posted somewhere?

    Although I note SC has not been updating the web under the national team section.

    Actually - 14 dance teams move on to Canadians -- and since there are 16 teams, two will be left home after challenge.

    Wrong redhotcoach. At the senior level there will be a maximum of 15 dance teams. Since 5 teams have direct byes to nationals ( see my previous post) that means that only 10 teams will qualify out of challenges.

    Refer to this url for the new rules regarding seniors
