Deadline - July 25, 2019

You must be 6 or older to compete in UNAA. Age is determined on how old they are on August 1, 2018 – (instead of November 1) since we already started season 4.

All athletes for the 2018-19 Season 4 shall compete in their appropriate class. Any athlete in the Age group classes may move up to the next age group if they so choose. Once they have moved up to that class, they must remain in that class for the duration of the year. Each course is age appropriate and if an athlete competes up – no accommodations will be made for height adjustments.

COMPETITION FORMAT
The State Games of America Ninja Challenge is an Ninja Warrior style obstacle competition with obstacles similar to the show including a buzzer to hit if you should defeat the course. Participants won’t know exactly what the course will be until the day of the event. Just like the athletes on the show!

The course is designed by American Ninja Warrior veteran athletes and the Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association for the best ninja experience possible.

Length of course will be up to 10 obstacles including warped walls (two wall heights for age groups). Course has a time limit of 3:30 minutes for completion, for all ages.
Once an obstacle has been attempted, one additional attempt may be taken. This “retry” may only be used once during an athlete’s course run. The athletes run will be completed upon failed obstacle or time expiration.
No chalk may be used on the course at any time.
Upon completion of the course, athlete must immediately depart course area in preparation for next athlete.
One person may be allowed on the sideline of the competitor while they are running the course, but in no way assisting the competitor or risk disqualification.
Competitors may not warm-up on the course on competition day, nor touch the course in any way or can risk disqualification.
The course will be available to try during the exhibition period July 29th to August 2nd, 2019 in public use time windows, for a small fee, as to not give an advantage over other competitors.
