This month, we had a great mix of competitors from previous months joining new athletes in taking on the ninja challenge, including competitive gymnasts from Dynamite Gymnastics Center lining up to test their mettle against the odds! We cheered on our competition's first Ninja Warrior champion: Dynamite Gymnastics Center's TNT Competitive Team athlete Alemdar, who won all three events for his age group!
We're envisioning future ninja warrior competitive teams from each DynamiteGym doing battle...
ABOUT THE MARCH COMPETITION
For the first time, we had too many athletes competing in an age group to judge all together! Our 9-10 year olds competed in two waves, and we also had more competitors overall in the 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8 age groups this month. We were thrilled to have so many young athletes filling our lobbies and families filling our spectator stands!
ABOUT THE February COMPETITION
This competition featured more visitors from out of town and older athletes than we've enjoyed in previous events! Our younger competitors were inspired at seeing how much the bigger kids and young adults were able to accomplish on our courses and our spectators saw how much fun this event can be when an entire family turns out to compete!
With the addition of visitors, first-time competitors, and older athletes, this month's event had a super-fun vibe that encouraged us to keep the party going as long as we could! Our post-awards open gym for the competitors was the scene for some awesome moves played out on the floor and trampolines as judges, coaches, and competitors let loose and had a ball!
ABOUT THE JANUARY 2017 COMPETITION
With our 3rd competition on January 21st, we introduced a new challenge for our youngest athletes: the preschool Rock-Climbing wall. All the challengers took on our version of the net bridge and rope glide, a balance bridge, and hill climbs. For our older athletes, January's Suspended Course included traversing suspended obstacles such as a Big Boulder and ended with a Final Rope challenge.
It was amazing to see how our athletes ages 7 and up attacked the bungee/Tarzan Rope fusion and 20-foot high horizontal rope traverse, ending with entering a vertically hung tube to a huge drop onto a resi-pit!
about the december 2016 competition
On December 17, 2016, TAC hosted the second Ninja Warrior competition with our first challengers in the 13-14 year group!
Our youngest competitor, Liam, took on those ropes and hill climbs like a champ!
