Many of the best young ninjas in the country rarely have the opportunity to do…
The Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association (UNAA) is one of the largest and most established ninja warrior style obstacle course racing leagues in the world. Some of our coaches have competed in this league since season 3, and we’ve been hosting UNAA Events since season 5 when we opened in 2019. We’re excited to be hosting a Season 9 Area Qualifier at Rock Solid Warrior at our Fuquay Varina location on December 16 and 17.
Unlike our local Ninja Carolina League which starts and ends in the Carolinas, for both beginners and advanced athletes, the UNAA provides opportunities to compete with others from around the country and around the world. Athletes attempt to progress through Area and Regional Qualifiers to get a crack at the season ending World Finals at “Obstacle Sports Expo 2024” which includes a variety of Ninja Sport and other Obstacle Course Racing events at the Anaheim Convention Center near Disneyland in California July 24-28.
There are divisions for children starting at age 6 through masters division (40+) and every age in between. All divisions will be included in this event. NOTE that there are no beginner categories among the 6-15 age groups divided by male and female, so beginner ninjas will be testing their skills against other athletes who may have been training for multiple years. But hard working beginners can advance far. Our own coach – Josh Auer – not only qualified for Worlds in his first year, but finished 10th in his age division. Do you have the stuff?
You can’t find out if you don’t start with an Area Qualifier. Come and see how well you can do on our courses designed by Jeshuah Lewis & crew.
The top 3 in each division (or Top 50% of competitors that have not yet qualified) will qualify to move on to Regionals in May-June to try to earn a spot at World Finals. Athletes can compete in as many Area Qualifiers as they would like in order to qualify and gain more experience. Rock Solid will be hosting another Area Qualifier at its South Apex facility on March 23.
Our competition will follow UNAA rules and age/categories. 7U, 9U, 11U, 13U, and 15U divisions indicate age 7 & under, 9& under, etc. based on an athlete’s age as of January 1, 2024.
Sign up now to reserve your spot and save money before prices go up. Run Order is based on how early you sign up. The earlier you sign up, the later you will be in the run order, benefitting from observing what other athletes do. All participants must sign our waiver.
Spectators are free (with limited capacity)
7U – 13U and 40+ will be on Saturday 15U, 16-39, and 14+Pro will be on Sunday afternoon.
