The 2015 World Junior Figure Skating Championships will be an international figure skating competition in the 2014–15 season. Commonly called "World Juniors" and "Junior Worlds", the event will determine the World Junior champions in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

The event will be held from 2–8 March 2015 in Tallinn, Estonia, at a newly constructed ice arena.[1]

Qualification[edit]

The competition is open to skaters from ISU member nations who are at least 13 but not 19—or 20 for male pair skaters and ice dancers—before July 1, 2014 in their place of birth. National associations select their entries according to their own criteria but the ISU mandates that their selections achieve a minimum technical elements score (TES) at an international event prior to the Junior Worlds.

The term "Junior" in ISU competition refers to age, not skill level. Skaters may remain age-eligible for Junior Worlds even after competing nationally and internationally at the senior level. At junior events, the ISU requires that all programs conform to junior-specific rules regarding program length, jumping passes, types of elements, etc.

Number of entries per discipline[edit]

Based on the results of the 2014 World Junior Championships, the ISU allowed each country one to three entries per discipline.
