The annual U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships are held about a week prior to the Junior World Challenge Cup, which does not allow U.S. Figure Skating to use the event as a qualifier. The 2014 U.S. Synchronized Championships will be held Feb. 26-March 1, in Colorado Springs. As a result, the Junior World Selection Competition is held in January to determine the U.S. representatives at the Junior World Challenge Cup.
The Lexettes (Lexington, Mass.) placed first at the 2013 World Junior Team Selection Competition, while the Skyliners (New York) placed second. The Lexettes finished sixth and the Skyliners seventh at the 2013 World Junior Synchronized Championships.
