What is the World Team Trophy?

The World Team Trophy made its debut in 2009 and is a team competition consisting of the top six figure skating teams from the current season. Teams consist of two ladies, two men, one pair and one ice dancing couple. Each skater/couple will compete with a Short Program/Short Dance and Free Skating/Free Dance. In each discipline, the top ranked skater(s) earns 12 points, the second ranked skater/couple receives 11 points and so on. The last ranked single skater gets one point, the last pair/ice dance couple gets 7 points. These points are added together to determine the winning team.

The U.S. won the inaugural World Team Trophy in 2009. This event was scheduled for last April in Japan, but was postponed following the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. A modified version of World Team Trophy has been added to the schedule for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

    thanks for putting the times in Eastern time zone, I was getting dizzy trying to calculate the time difference. The ISU Skating Channel is streaming the event for free.
