Putting two age groups together, such as Juvenile I and II as well as Junior I and II to one joint age group, is an option under Rule E-2. Juvenile II couples are allowed to compete in Junior I. Junior I couples are allowed to compete in Junior II, Junior II couples are allowed to compete in Youth, Youth couples and Senior couples are allowed to compete in competitions of the Adult age group if they want. In all age groups, one partner of a couple can be younger, except in the Senior age groups.

The rule should enable couples and coaches to plan the careers on a long-term basis, given that the age group classification of athletes does not depend on their birthday but on their year of birth, as in most other sports too.
