World Ninja League Competitions at Life Force Ninja

World Ninja League Season VIII

The World Ninja League is a non-profit organization that facilitates competitions at gyms world-wide. The eighth season of the WNL runs August 2022 through June 2023, with the World Championships taking place June 23-25, 2023 in Greensboro, NC. Gyms affiliated with the WNL will host various qualifier competitions, where athletes will compete against each other vying for the top spots. Those who placed in the top three of their age/gender division from a qualifier will qualify to compete in a regional championship. Life Force Ninja will be the host gym for the Northwest regional competition, which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska . To qualify for the World Championships, athletes must compete at the regional and finish in the top 16 or 35% of the unique athletes that competed in the region in the athlete’s respective age division and gender.

Event cost is $90 / participant, and free for spectators. Why is the cost higher than a normal competition? The WNL stipulates that regional competition tickets must fall within a certain price range, and we are at the lower end. The WNL also takes a higher cut of each athlete’s regional ticket, which goes towards funding the league and larger events such as WNL World Championships!

We are limited in the number of competitors we can accommodate, so register early! Prizes and/or medals are awarded to the top three male and female athletes within each age group. Run times for age/gender divisions are subject to change.
