Calling all Ninjas! Join Universal Gymnastics, Inc for our first annual Back to School Ninja Competition!

Click HERE to register!

Our Back to School Ninja Competition is perfect for first-timers and experienced ninjas. It will test your abilities ranging from balance, upper body, grip, and overall movement.

The divisions will consist of the following age groups:

Division I: Ages 7-9
Division II: Ages 10-13
Division III: Ages 14-17
Division IV: Ages 18+

The ninja’s age on September 1st, 2019 will decide what age category they fall into.

Awards are provided for the top 3 ninjas in each division. Your child is allowed to compete in a higher division than their age group if desired.

Will the runs be posted prior to the event?
No. Courses will be announced at the start of each age division. Expect the staples of any ninja warrior obstacles to be present. Balance, grip, agility, and upper body strength! These will all be age appropriate. What happens if my child has a fault on an obstacle? Ninjas are judged on time as well as obstacles completed. Every child will get to run the full course in the maximum time allowed (two minutes). Time will stop after a fall, but everyone will have the chance to finish the course

Will there be any time to practice?
No. There will not be time to practice the day of the event on the main course. A warm-up area will be available. If you would like to practice on the obstacles prior to competing, Universal is hosting an Open Gym on Friday, September 20th from 6:30pm-8:00 for $15 per person.

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 compete in the division above their actual age, please register based on their desired division, not their current age.

Can the athletes use chalk (powder or liquid)?
In order for us to maintain a clean ninja facility, chalk of any type WILL NOT be allowed. Gloves are NOT allowed.

Are there prizes for each age group?
Prizes will be given to top 3 winners in each age division.

What are my parking options?
Parking is available across the street. Please leave the spaces closest the building for handicapped/elderly.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please e-mail with any questions.
