Welcome! Below you will find our code of conduct. We require all individuals participating in the World Ninja League to adhere to the standards contained within this document. Community members may report potential violations of these standards directly the World Ninja League administrators. Community members must also go directly to law enforcement if the report includes evidence a child may have been abused or neglected.
Because children often attend WNL events and watch WNL live broadcasts, individuals participating with the WNL must act as model citizens and uphold a Standard of Excellence and Sportsmanship.

A report must be made if a coach, administrator or parent suspects or has reason to believe a child has been abused or neglected. This may include child sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, non-consensual sexual conduct, sexual harassment, intimate relations involving an imbalance of power, or any form of emotional/physical misconduct such as bullying or hazing similarly, if a reporter has knowledge of or observes a child being subjected to, conditions that would reasonably harm the child.
Administrators fulfilling roles within the WNL or an WNL affiliated facility are required to report all cases of potential child abuse to our administration.
If you are a mandatory reporter, you may also be required to report suspected child abuse or child sexual abuse to law enforcement, in addition to reporting to the WNL.
