ISU Junior World Cup Speed Skating

The ISU Junior World Cup Speed Skating is a series comprised of several international events. It is the second most important competition for juniors, after the ISU World Junior Speed Skating Championships.

The format is comparable to the ISU World Cup Speed Skating Series however participation is open to Junior A and Junior B Skaters, born between July 1, 2002 and June 30, 2006 as per ISU Rule 108, and to Junior C Skaters born between July 1, 2006 – June 30, 2007, based on achievement of applicable qualifying times (see ISU Communication No. 2430, paragraph 2 d) and 4.3).

In 2016 a neo-senior World Cup was added to the Junior World Cup Series. Participation in the Neo-seniors division is open to Skaters born between July 1, 1998 and June 30, 2002.

The first edition of the Junior World Cup Speed Skating was held in 2008/09 with competitions in five distances for both Men and Women. Although the 500m, 1000m, 1500m and Team Pursuit were participated by both genders, the Women had a 3000m race, while the Men had a combined 3000m and 5000m as a distance.

During the 2011/12 season Mass Start (12 laps for Men, 8 laps for Women) was added and in 2013/14 the Team Sprint event (3 laps) was held for the first time. The results for the Team Sprint and Team Pursuit events are combined in the final rankings. Since the 2014/15 season the Mass Start is held over 10 laps for both Men and Women.To access Documents and Standings from the previous seasons, please visit our archives page.
