Qualification

This competition is open to skaters from all non-European member nations of the International Skating Union. The corresponding competition for European skaters is the 2019 European Figure Skating Championships.

Skaters are eligible for the event if they reached the age of 15 before July 1, 2018. Each national federation is permitted three entries for each discipline and may choose skaters based on their own criteria, as long as the selected skaters have attained the minimum technical elements scores (TES) in accordance with ISU regulations.

Minimum technical element scores (TES)

The ISU stipulates that the minimum scores must be achieved at an ISU-recognized senior international competition in the ongoing or preceding season, no later than 21 days before the first official practice day. Due to the difference in the rules for the 2017–18 and 2018–19 seasons, the required minimum scores to enter the 2019 Four Continents Championships have been adjusted separately for scores reached in the 2017–18 and the 2018–19 season.[3]

Minimum TES 2017/2018 2018/2019

Pairs 25.00 44.00 25.00 42.00
Ice dance 25.00 38.00 26.00 42.00
Minimum TES must be reached separately in each segment
(not a total of the two segments).
SP and FS scores may be attained at different events.
