Competitive Team is a little more involved, and its schedule is a reflection of the higher level training. Competitive Team is directly training for competitions, and there will be a few throughout the year that are mandatory.
Competitive Team practices are on Monday and Wednesday from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Additionally, there is an optional Course Runs practice on Friday.
Competitive Team will, at the start of the season, be placed into 3 tiers based on skill. These tiers will, just like the groups in Team Prep, rotate throughout the gym working with all of the coaches on various skills.
What is Ninja Team?
Ninja is inherently an individual sport. So why make a team? Well, one amazing thing about ninja is the community. It’s made up of athletes and fans that encourage, uplift, motivate, and push each other to the pinnacle of their performance. Ninja Team at Skyhook is where dedicated Ninja athletes come together to grow in not just strength and ability but in character and confidence. Ninja team focuses on skills in the gym but also on life skills and character growth.
There are two main benefits to team- a smaller, consistent training group, and 1.5-hour long practices.
The longer classes allow for more focused training in technique, strength and strategy of obstacles and skills. This, working in tandem with the fact that every student in Team practice WANTS to be there, results in a positive, growth-oriented atmosphere.
Waivers must be filled out online prior to attending class. If under the age of 18, the waiver must be signed by the parent/legal guardian.
The Team Prep program is our entry into higher level ninja. We will begin working on the skills required to be successful in Ninja Warrior, helped by a consistent training schedule.
Team Prep practices are on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
Team Prep will be divided into 3 groups based on size/age. These groups will rotate throughout the gym, working on different skills with all of the Team coaches.
