A new boost for non-ISU teams
Team Snowflakes won the Mixed Age division.
Besides the ISU Junior and Senior competitions, about 15 teams competed at the Neuchâtel Trophy 2022 in the categories Advanced Novice, Juvenile, Basic Novice, Junior B and Mixed Age.
Skating in their own rink, team United Blades from Neuchâtel (SUI) finished 2nd with 46.25 points and a clean performance on catchy beats.
The podium was 100% Swiss as the team Ice Storms finished 3rd. In red dresses, the team totalled 38.63 points.
Skating to the music of Abba, Team Magic from Hungary skated with passion and energy but was penalized by several falls during the performance, which caused them to lose points. 6th, Team Bernettes (SUI) also suffered a bad fall in the Pivot Block.
Team Berlin Juniors from Germany achieved the best score (60.67) by presenting their new program (and new dresses). The team had some difficulties in the first intersection and the No Hold Block but skated a lovely artistic line.
The young team Team Emerald from Basel in Switzerland also presented their work on Saturday. Skating in beautiful glittering dresses, the team had two falls in the middle of the program, but they certainly have a place to take in the junior category.
Cool Dreams Novice from Burgdorf finished first with ten points ahead of their compatriots from Zurich. Totalling 59.93, Cool Dreams Novice started strong with a level 4 element and then a nice artistic line. Starlight Novice skated a "fairy-themed" program in green dresses, totalling 49.39 points.

Ice Flowers (SUI) won the Basic Novice competition with 30.62 points, Team Ute from Hungary finished 2nd despite the Block Pivot element not counting (28.19), and Team Ruby (SUI) finished 3rd (22.14).
In the Juvenile category, gold went to Team Le Soleil (POL) with a score of 37.73, Team Ute (HUN) took silver (28.56), and Cool Dreams Juvenile from Switzerland won bronze with 18.84.
