Aerial-Ninja: Dual Stage Ninja Warrior Competition
Fitset Ninja & Snow Valley Aerial Park are partnering up to create an epic ninja competition September 28th & 29th in Edmonton.
What is a dual stage ninja warrior competition? A first of it’s kind competition in Edmonton where athletes compete in two stages to make up their final score. We will also be hosting 2-hour skill development workshops Thursday September 26th at Fitset Ninja for those looking to level up their ninja skills before the competition. No matter what your skill or experience level this will be a great opportunity to learn, develop and practice ninja & obstacle skills in a fun, safe and friendly environment. Kids must be at least 125cm tall to participate. More details below..
Stage 1 at Fitset Ninja will be just like the TV show American Ninja Warrior, where registrants will put their skills to the test on an expertly designed course and have one run to accumulate the highest score in the fastest time. The run will be judged by points first (obstacles completed successfully), and time second.
Stage 2 at Snow Valley Aerial Park will be scored differently. Competitors will get exactly 10 minutes on each level (there are 3 levels) to complete as many obstacles as possible where different obstacles have different point values. Your score on this stage will be the sum of all of your completed obstacles point values.
Your final score will be calculated by adding your stage 1 score to your stage 2 score. We'll be hosting both a kids & adult competition with prizes for all age divisions including a $1500 cash prize purse split between the adult open divisions!
Kids divisions (ages 6+) are boys/girls: u9, u11 and u13. Ages 14 and up compete in the adult amateur divisions.
Adult divisions are men/women: Amateur, Open, 40+
