UNAA Competition Rules
The UNAA is a ninja warrior competition series with Area (aka local) Qualifiers, Regional Qualifiers and World Finals using a point scoring system hosted at various ninja gyms around the world.
All participating athletes must join the UNAA (Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association) Membership Fee is $25.00 (US Dollars) seasonally. Registration is available online at www.ultimateninja.net and is good for one season. Each season concludes after UNAA Finals. All athletes who are not UNAA registered should not be allowed to compete in UNAA competitions and will forfeit any placement.
Score is then determined by points gained, and time of the full run. Points are the highest priority when determining the final score with time being second priority. (EX: athlete completes 12 of 13 obstacles they have 12 points). Each Obstacle will be worth 1 point for full completion. For more difficult obstacles, each obstacle can be worth 2 points and have a halfway point, which must be clearly marked with a tape mark or other. The completion of halfway is worth 1 point. 2-point obstacles are used to create boundaries of Fair Play as required by FISO, which is the World obstacle federation to meet the requirements of the International Olympic Committee. This deters athletes that want to Skip the difficult obstacles but will reward those that at least TRY to get one point.
Competitors will NOT be able to reattempt an obstacle during their run.
Competitors are allowed a maximum of 3 fails per course run. After 3 Fails, the athletes run is over. They many finish the course but will not receive a score for the remaining obstacles. Their time will end with last Obstacle Completed. Each Obstacle will be worth 1 point for full completion. For more difficult obstacles, each obstacle can be worth 2 points and have a halfway point, which must be clearly marked with a tape mark or other. Completion of halfway is worth 1 point.
Mulligans?? The UNAA does not offer a RETRY. Finish or fail an obstacle and move on to the next.
If athlete times out before completing last obstacle, time is reverted to last obstacle completed.
Participants must be UNAA members prior to their Area Qualifier, or they cannot qualify to move on.
You must be 6 or older to compete in UNAA. Age is determined on how old they are on August 1, 2019 for ALL age groups.
The Top 50% of each age class will qualify for the regional competition.
The Top 20% of the Regional Qualifier will advance to the World Finals
Athletes may compete in more than one class. Example: 40+ may compete in Pro or Amateur also, but must PAY for two classes, but only run the course once, using that score for both. Any youth Age group may also compete in an Amateur or Pro Class but must PAY for two classes. If 50% or more of the course is different for their age group, they will run both courses.
Although athletes may compete in multiple classes, if they qualify in both classes for UNAA World Finals, they must CHOOSE which class to compete in at Finals.
