The 2017 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships was an international figure skating competition in the 2016–17 figure skating season. It was held at the Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, South Korea on February 16–19.[1] Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. The competition served as the figure skating test event for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Qualification[edit]

The competition was open to skaters from non-European member nations of the International Skating Union who reached the age of 15 before July 1, 2016. The corresponding competition for European skaters was the 2017 European Figure Skating Championships.

Each National Federation from the four represented regions were permitted to send up to three skaters/couples for each discipline. National Federations could select their entries based on their own criteria, as long as the selected skater/couples attained a minimum technical elements score (TES) at an international senior event prior to the Four Continents.
