NoVa Ninja UNAA Youth Ninja Warrior Competition
POSTPONED to a date TBD
NoVa Ninja is pleased to present our first official Youth Ninja Warrior Competition with UNAA! For ages 6 to 15.
CLICK HERE for more information and to purchase tickets at Eventbrite.
The youth divisions will consist of the following age groups:
• Division I: Age 5-7
• Division II: Age 8-10
• Division III: Age 11-12
• Division IV: Age 13+
• Your child's age on September 1st, 2019 determines what age category they fall into.
• Your child is allowed to compete in a higher division than their age group if desired.
Times will depend on the number of competitors per division and are subject to change.
The gym will open at 8:30 am for initial registration & check-in. Please be sure all competitors are checked in 15 minutes prior to their division start time. Athlete brief will take place promptly at the start time for each division with the competitor course runs to follow immediately after. In order to keep the competition schedule intact, we will not be able to accommodate late arrivals. Please ensure all athletes are on time.
The competition will consist of a 10 obstacle stage 1 and a ninja bonus challenge.
This course will consist of approximately 10 obstacles. Stage 1 will be scored by total number of obstacles completed in the given time cap. All competitors will be allowed to complete the course despite any "faults" within the time cap allotted.
Expect the staples of any ninja warrior obstacles to be present. Balance, grip, agility, and upper body strength! These will all be age appropriate.
Ninja bonus challenge will be announced the day of the event and can be participated in by all competitors. The winner of the bonus challenge will be announced during the award ceremony.
In addition to the main course runs, contestants can "play" on our upstairs ninja course during event time! PARENTAL SUPERVISION REQUIRED UPSTAIRS AT ALL TIMES!
Run order is determined by sign up order. First to sign-up = last to run.
Awards are provided for the top 3 ninjas in each division.
Additional prizes provided by our ninja sponsors will be given to the 1st place ninjas in Division III and IV.
Your child is allowed to compete in a higher division than their age group if desired.
Awards include award winner certificates, ninja gear from some of our favorite sponsors, ninja training swag, and more!
No. In true ninja warrior fashion, courses will be announced at the start of each age division. There will be random spontaneous announcements on included obstacles from our Facebook page, so like us at CrossFit Loudoun & NoVa Ninja Training to stay up to date!
Every child will get to run the full course in the maximum time allowed for their division. We strive for each participant to have a great experience and feel empowered by their performance. If a child feels uncomfortable with an obstacle, they can bypass it. However, we certainly encourage each child to try every obstacle!
No. There will not be time to practice the day of the event on the main course. A warm-up / "play" area will be available upstairs in our ninja mezzanine. If you would like to practice on the obstacles prior to competing, open gym times are available as well as private training and group training. The actual course will not be announced until the start of competition.
Can my child move up or down to the next age bracket if their skills are more suited to those obstacles?
If you would like your child to complete in the division above their actual age, please register based on their desired division, not their current age.
Prize packages do increase per age group.
Prize packages vary for each division (i.e. larger prize package for division IV than division I).
There are no refunds for the event.
