      Each KNL season (3 in total: Fall, Winter and Spring) consists of 4-5 Ninja Warrior style competitions. Ninjas sign-up for their age appropriate division and are divided into teams for the season. Ninjas will take on our 3 Main Events individually, but are accumulating points for their team!

      • Event #1: Obstacle Course Run
      • Event #2: Skill Event/s
      • Event #3: Ninja Light Challenge

      Each event focuses on providing a challenging and fun environment for children to grow their Ninja skills! It’s a great opportunity for kids to implement the skills, strength and balance developed in Ninja class..all in a fun and supportive environment!

      Each KNL season concludes with our KNL Cup Championship, an award ceremony for all following the final competition! Here we highlight all teams final season standings, plus the male & female division season point leaders.

      Teams

      • Ninjas will be placed on a team for the Fall season.
      • If your child is not currently enrolled in a class, and/or it’s been a while since your child has been to any class/event at the gym, we will contact you to schedule a screening.  Screenings may be required for team placement.
      • The number of ninjas on a team will be determined based on the final number of ninjas participating in each age division.
      • Teams will be co-ed.
      • Each team will be assigned a team color and will receive team t-shirts for the season. T-shirts will be provided at the first competition.

      Competition Format

      NEW for the Fall season! At each KNL competition, ninjas will participate in 3 events, trying to earn points for their team (see below for more info on our point system). The course, obstacles, and skill events will change each time!

      Event #1: Obstacle Course Run

      Ninjas will take on a new course each competition! Courses consist of an average of 10 obstacles and are designed differently for each competition.

      Learn More
      • Number Of Course Runs Per Ninja: 1
      • What’s Recorded?
        • ObstaclesNinjas will run the course receiving (1) point for every obstacle successfully completed within the provided time limit. If an obstacle is attempted and not completed, there will be no point awarded for that obstacle. Ninjas will continue to run the course after a failed obstacle and can still receive points for each successfully completed obstacle.
        • Time: The time it takes for each Ninja to complete his/her course run will be recorded. If a Ninja does not complete the course within the provided time limit, the maximum time will be recorded as their time (ex: Bobby is on obstacle #8 when the time limit of 2:30 runs out. Bobby’s time for his course run would be recorded as 2:30.) Points will take precedent over time for score keeping. Time will be used if any teams have a tie with points.

      Event #2: Skill Event/s

      Ninjas will test their agility, speed, balance, strength and more at our ever changing Skill events.

      Learn More
      • Number Of Skill Event Attempts Per Ninja: 2-3
      • What’s Recorded?
        • Your personal best
      • What Are The Type Of Skill Events? Depending on the Skill event, two things can be recorded:
      1. Repetitions: How many times can a skill/challenge be completed in a provided time limit? (Example: in 30 seconds, how many times can you run down and back on a balance obstacle?)
      2. Time: Length of time it takes to complete a skill/challenge (Example: how long does it take to complete a row of rings, climb a rope, etc.)

      Event #3: Ninja Challenges- Catch the Lights

      Ninjas will combine their strength, focus and strategy as they race across obstacles to “catch” our Ninja lights in unique, fun challenges! 

      Learn More
      • Number Of Light Challenge Attempts Per Ninja: 2-3
      • What’s Recorded?
        • Your personal best
      • What Are The Type Of Light Challenges? Our interactive light system has multiple modes of “play” so the fun is continually changing. (Example: Ninjas traverse across a rock climbing wall while “catching” their teams colored lights.)

      Competition Scoring

      Team Points

      Each of the 3 events will have a leaderboard that will automatically seed Ninja’s based on their performance. The top 50% of ninjas in each event will earn points for their team.

      • Example: There are 12 ninjas in the 5-6 year old division. The top 6 ninjas in each event will earn points for their team as follows:
        • 1st place: 6 team points
        • 2nd place: 5 team points
        • 3rd place: 4 team points
        • 4th place: 3 team points
        • 5th place: 2 team points
        • 6th place: 1 team points
      • At the end of each competition, the total number of team points will be tallied. Teams will earn SEASON points after each competition based on their final standing at each competition. SEASON points accumulate over the season and will be awarded as follows:
        • 1st place team finish: 4 season points
        • 2nd place team finish: 3 season points
        • 3rd place team finish: 2 season points
        • 4th place team finish: 1 season point
      •  In the event there is a TIE of total team points, the team with the highest course run finish will take the higher placement.
      • Updated season team standings will be posted after each competition.

      Individual Points

      We will highlight the top 3 finishers, male and female, in each of the 3 events at the end of every competition. These top performers will earn individual points which will accrue over the season. Points will be awarded as follows:

      • 1st place: 3 points
      • 2nd place: 2 points
      • 3rd place: 1 point

      At the end of the season, individual points will be tallied and the top male and female finisher in each age division will be recognized and will receive a prize!
