Join the highest quality ninja network in the world and become part of the future of the sport! Our goal is to take the sport of ninja to the highest possible level. We dedicate our time and resources to growing the sport from beginner (Tier 2) to professional (Tier 1). Our Tier 2 competitions focus on driving new athletes to the sport. Our WNL rulebook consistently sets the standard for how ninja is regulated around the world. The rulebook has been adapted for many local leagues and organizations. Finally, we are dedicated to bringing a professional avenue for elite ninjas to compete at the highest level of the sport.
Joining our network will automatically connect your facility to the leaders in ninja. Our team will help drive athletes to your competition but most importantly we take feedback from our facilities very seriously. We want to grow the sport together with our community! Joining the WNL will give you a voice in the direction our sport grows.
WNL facilities are eligible to host qualifying events for Tier 1 and 2 competitions.
The World Ninja League is the premier obstacle competition league of one of the world’s fastest-growing sports. WNL competitions regularly draw the largest competitive fields in the sport, with many of our qualifiers hosting upwards of 200 competitors across all age divisions. These athletes are among the top athletes in the sport, and our World Championships draw most of the top ninjas in the world. As a growing sport, we regularly reach out to our facilities to help improve the rules of our sport. We firmly believe that WNL-affiliated facilities are the best of the best in the ninja community, and we believe that the only way for us to grow is for our facilities to be prosperous as well.
Facilities will receive:
Facilities are allowed to host only Tier 1 events, only Tier 2 events, or both. Additionally, you are allowed to host competitions for adults only, youth only, or both. This can also vary by competition (i.e. you would be allowed to host one competition for youth only and another for both youth and adults).
Facilities may become Tier 2-specific facilities. Facilities that apply for full WNL status may be accepted only as Tier 2 with the option of becoming a Tier 1 facility after hosting a successful Tier 2 event.
That’s ok! We still encourage you to apply anyway. There are a few ways you can go about hosting a WNL event without having previously hosted an event at your facility:
Facilities that are part of a franchise will have to apply at each individual location. While we certainly encourage you to apply at each location in order to help grow your ninja program, franchises are not required to be NNL members at every facility. Additionally, facilities that are members of a franchise, but are not themselves NNL facilities, are allowed to be members of non-approved organizations.
Submit the following three items to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Your application will then be scored by a review team on five criteria:
Your application must pass all five categories to gain admission to the league. If you fail to meet the criteria in any category, you are welcome to reapply after improving your operation. In some cases, we may keep your application on file and allow you to improve a minor concern without having to reapply.
There is no fee to apply or join the World Ninja League.
