On January 13-15, 2017, 100+ teams from across Canada and the United States will compete at Winterfest — the largest synchronized skating competition in the nation.

Thousands of spectators are expected to fill the stands at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario this weekend during the annual three-day Winterfest competition. The event will play duel host to the ISU Junior World Synchronized Skating Championships Trials (JWSSCT). On Friday and Saturday evening, three Canadian teams will compete for two spots at the World Championship event, which will also take place at the Hershey Centre from March 10-11, 2017.

Over the past 14 years, Les Suprêmes (Saint Léonard, Québec) and NEXXICE (Burlington, Ontario) have earned six and four medals respectively at the ISU Junior World Challenge Cup (JWCC).

In 2016, Les Suprêmes Junior picked up the ISU JWCC gold medal in Zagreb, Croatia, and will look to defend their title as Team Canada 1 this weekend. Also challenging for top spots are NEXXICE Junior, who earned the Canadian Championship title in 2016, and Les Pirouettes Junior (Laval, Québec) who finished 5th out of 19 teams at the 2016 Mozart Cup.
