Elite Ninja Tryouts 2021

Elite Ninja Squad Tryouts


Elite Ninja Tryouts are an opportunity for you to take your Ninja Warrior journey to the next level. This stepping stone is an opportunity to build on recreational classes and develop the skills required for state and national affiliate competitions such as ANF, NCL and UNAA. 

These sessions focus on improving specific skills, strength, conditioning and coordination in a structured, supported team environment. Unlike recreational sessions, being a Fighting Lyons Elite competitor will focus on specific foundational and advanced obstacles/tasks each week, allowing you to consistently and safely improve your abilities.

Elite Squad Members will also now train in age groups.

Importantly, Elite Squad Members will represent Fighting Lyons both within the gym and on a local, state and international level. This involves the proper uniform, a training commitment to Fighting Lyons, and competing under the Fighting Lyons banner at all competitions.

  • Compulsory attendance of your assigned elite class, striving for 100% attendance.

The ethos of Ninja Warrior is that you are only competing against one thing: the course! Teamwork is therefore integral to the Elite Squad.

    • 2. Elite Squad Member will be asked to sit out and will be suspended from training until a meeting is arranged with parents.
    • 3. A third incident will result in discontinuation of Elite membership and your position will be given to someone else. You can then try out for the next year’s squad.
