What Makes Us Different? Our Ninjas receive not only skill awards but character recognition awards. Plus they get to participate in two action-packed Ninja Expos per year!
Designed to get your kiddos’ hearts pumping! These classes are boys ages 3.5-12 and girls ages kindergarten-12. They are a fusion of gymnastics and obstacle course training including challenges at the bars and balance beams. In addition, your child will enjoy Ninja Training which includes doing flips, rolls, and kicks. Gymnastics training and obstacle courses are both designed to help total body coordination, build strength, and improve agility. Beyond skill, this class teaches:
- Impulse control
- Instinctual safety (how to roll when you fall – how to avoid injury. great for use in other sports)
- Improves agility
- Builds core strength
Levels of All-American Ninjas: There are two All-American Ninja levels. Ninja Bears for boys ages 3.5-5 and they wear red headbands. All-American Ninjas is for boys and girls ages kindergarten –12. All-American Ninjas start with a navy blue headband. When they have mastered all skills of their level, they will be invited to a Ninja Quest. If they complete the quest, your ninja will move to the next level. When progress to each level, a coordinating headband is worn in class. Below is a breakdown of the levels.
· Navy (Beginner)
· Purple (Advanced Beginner)
· Yellow (Intermediate)
· Black (Intermediate 2)
What is a Quests? A quest is for the advancement of Ninjas to move up to the next division.
When Ninjas are ready to move to the next level, teachers will fill out an “Invitation Card.” Quests will are held on Sunday afternoons. At their mission, Ninjas will be evaluated on mastery of their skills.
A child’s progression is determined by their own pace, handing them the tools to shape their own experience. By letting children advance individually, within a defined and collaborative program, children of ages 4-12 years old receive more than athletic gifts. They’re strong, confident kids.
