With the Tier 2 Championships on the horizon, one thing stands between athletes and a coveted qualifying spot for the main event: Regionals!
Tier 2 Regionals are a great opportunity for ninja athletes to compete in a higher-stakes event with athletes and on courses scaled appropriately to their abilities. Here, athletes can show how much they’ve improved over the season. Meanwhile, families and friends can support their athlete with a custom Athlete Support Banner, which will be on display during the competitions!
Regionals is one of the biggest events in the Tier 2 season, and our format is meant to reflect that.
All Tier 2 Regionals will consist of two courses: a speed course following our Flow Course format and a longer course following our Full Course format. Athletes will receive points based on their placements on each course (1st Place=1 Point, 2nd Place=2 Points, etc.) and the best combined score will win the Course Overall title – and the Regional Championship.
At the end of each Regional, 16 athletes (or the top 35%, whichever number is bigger) will qualify for the Tier 2 Championships in each division!
