Patrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir—Canada’s best figure skaters are coming to Vancouver in their quests for Olympic gold.

From Jan. 8-14, 2018, over 200 skaters will compete in the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championship. The top competitors will get a spot on the Skate Canada National Team and the Canadian teams—a position that includes a ticket to compete at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Skaters in the men, women, pair, and ice dance disciplines will compete in three levels: senior, junior, and novice. In all, Canada will send two men, three women, three pair teams and three ice dance teams to PyeongChang. Teams will also compete at the 2018 ISU World Figure Skating Championships, 2018 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, and 2018 ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships.

Here are some of the skating stars you’ll see at this year’s 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championship. (For tickets as well as ticket-and-hotel packages, scroll below.)
