The 2010–11 ISU Junior Grand Prix was the 14th season of the ISU Junior Grand Prix, a series of international junior level competitions organized by the International Skating Union. It was the junior-level complement to the 2010–11 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, which was for senior-level skaters. Skaters competed in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singes, pair skating, and ice dancing.

Skaters earned points towards qualifying for the Junior Grand Prix Final at each of the seven Junior Grand Prix events. The top eight skaters/teams in the series from each discipline met at the 2010–11 Junior Grand Prix Final, which was held concurrently with the senior Grand Prix Final.

Qualifying[edit]

Skaters who reached the age of 13 by July 1, 2010 but had not turned 19 (singles and females of the other two disciplines) or 21 (male pair skaters and ice dancers) were eligible to compete on the junior circuit. Unlike the senior ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, skaters for the Junior Grand Prix are entered by their national federations rather than seeded by the ISU. The number of entries allotted to each ISU member federation is determined by their skaters's placements at the previous season's World Junior Figure Skating Championships in each respective discipline.

For the 2010–2011 season, in singles, the three best placed member nations at the 2010 World Junior Figure Skating Championships were allowed to enter two skaters in all seven events. Member nations who placed fourth through sixth were allowed to enter one skater in all seven events. Member nations who placed seventh through twelfth were allowed to enter one skater in six of the seven events. Member nations with a skater who had qualified for the free skate at the World Junior Championships were allowed to enter one skater in five of the events. Member nations who did not qualify for the free skate but placed 25th through 30th in the short program were allowed to enter one skater in four of the events. Member nations who did not qualify for the free skate but placed 31st and lower in the short program were allowed to enter one skater in three of the events. Member nations who had not participated in the 2010 World Junior Championships were allowed to enter one skater in two events. There were provisions for additional entries per member country if another country did not use all of its allotted entries.

In pairs, member nations who placed in the top five at the 2010 World Junior Championships were allowed to enter three entries in all four events in which pairs were contested. Member nations who qualified for the free skate at the World Junior Championships were allowed to enter two entries in all four events. All other member nations were allowed to enter one entry in all four events. The host nation was allowed to enter as many pair teams as it wanted.

In ice dancing, the multiple spots allowance was the same as for singles, through one entry in five events. Member nations who qualified for the original dance but not the free dance at the 2010 World Junior Championships were allowed to enter one team in four of the events. Member nations who placed 31st and lower in the compulsory dance segment were allowed to enter one team in three of the events. Member nations who had not participated in the 2010 World Junior Championships were allowed to enter one team in two events. There were provisions for additional entries per member country if another country did not use all of its allotted entries.

The host country was allowed to enter up to three skaters/teams in singles and dance in their event, and there was no limit to the number of pairs teams.

The general spots allowance for the 2010-2011 Junior Grand Prix events was as follows:

Junior Grand Prix Final qualification and qualifiers[edit]

Qualification rules[edit]

At each event, skaters/teams who place high enough earn points towards qualification for the Junior Grand Prix Final. Following the 7th event, the top-8 highest scoring skaters/teams advanced to the Final. The points earned per placement was as follows:

Placement Points (Singles/Dance) Points (Pairs)
1st 15 15
2nd 13 13
3rd 11 11
4th 9 9
5th 7 7
6th 5 5
7th 4 4
8th 3 3
9th 2 -
10th 1 -

There were 7 tie-breakers in cases of a tie in overall points:

  1. Highest placement at an event. If a skater placed 1st and 3rd, the tiebreaker is the 1st place, and that beats a skater who placed 2nd in both events.
  2. Highest combined total scores in both events. If a skater earned 200 points at one event and 250 at a second, that skater would win in the second tie-break over a skater who earned 200 points at one event and 150 at another.
  3. Participated in two events.
  4. Highest combined scores in the free skating/free dancing portion of both events.
  5. Highest individual score in the free skating/free dancing portion from one event.
  6. Highest combined scores in the short program/short dance of both events.
  7. Highest number of total participants at the events.

If there is still a tie, the tie is considered unbreakable and the tied skaters all advance to the Junior Grand Prix Final.
