All Courses must be exactly 10 obstacles. 9 of these obstacles should be easier than an NNL course. This decision is subjective and therefore left to the facility to determine what they define as “easier”. Courses may not be practiced prior to the competition. Athletes will be allotted a time to finish the course & Athletes will be allowed to continue within the limit allowed regardless of how many fails they have. Rec competitions are single stage events.
NNL Vets may compete in the Rec. league. However, NNL finalists from the season prior will not take away the 3 qualifying spots from rec athletes.
Age Groups & Categories are as follows: Kids (Age 6-8), Mature Kids (Age 9-10), PreTeens (Age 11-12), Teens (Age 13-15), Young Adults (Age 16-17), Pros (Age 18+), Masters (Age 40+). Please note, not every competition will have every age category, so please make sure to double check with the gym!. A athlete's age as of March 31, 2019 decides what category.
Prizes & Awards
All NNL Rec. comps will award the same medals to all athletes. There will not be an award ceremony at the competition. No additional prizes can be given outside of the league’s medals The Recreational League will follow the same strict standards and guidelines the National Ninja League has set for competitions. Throughout the Rec. season athletes will accumulate points per obstacle completed. At the end of the Rec, season the Top Male and Female per age division will earn the title of Regional Obstacle King/Queen and be award a trophy. The top 3 athletes per age division(excluding any athletes that qualified for finals the previous season) will also be awarded a spot at NNL finals.
