The 2009 World Junior Figure Skating Championships was the World Junior Figure Skating Championships for the 2008–2009 season. Commonly called "World Juniors" and "Junior Worlds", they are an annual figure skating competition in which elite figure skaters compete for the title of World Junior Champion. The event crowned the World Junior Champions in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

The event was held between February 22 and March 1, 2009 at the Winter Sports Hall in Sofia, Bulgaria. The event had been provisionally scheduled to be held in Ostrava, Czech Republic, however, due to financial reasons, the Czech Figure Skating Association could not host. Therefore, on October 13, 2008, the International Skating Union definitively assigned the World Junior Championships to Sofia.[1]

Qualification[edit]

The competition was open to skaters from ISU Member Nations who had reached the age of 13 by July 1, 2008, but had not yet turned 19. The upper age limit for men competing in pairs and dance was 21.

The term "Junior" refers to the age level rather than necessarily the skill level. Therefore, some of the skaters competing have competed nationally and internationally at the senior level, but are still age-eligible for World Juniors. Regardless of whether they have competed as seniors, all competitors perform programs that conform to the ISU rules for junior level competition in terms of program lengths, jumping passes, etc.

Number of entries per discipline[edit]

All members nations have one entry in each discipline by default. Member nations may earn more than entry based on their performance at the previous year's championships.

The following countries earned more than one entry to the 2009 World Junior Championships based on their performance at the 2008 World Junior Figure Skating Championships.[2]
