The top skaters in the country will head to three Sectional Championships to determine who will compete at the 2012 U.S. Junior Championships and 2012 U.S. National Championships. 

At the senior level, four teams have a bye and are not required to qualify via sectionals – Meryl Davis & Charlie White, Maia Shibutani & Alex Shibutani, Lynn Kriengkrairut & Logan Giulietti-Schmitt and Madison Chock & Evan Bates.  Junior ice dancers Alexandra Aldridge & Daniel Eaton also have a bye to Nationals due to qualifying for the Junior Grand Prix Final. 

IDC has pulled together some event links as well as the schedule for the ice dancing events at each section.
