This is a 100% parent/guardian assisted class. Participants along with their "adult helper" will work through a variety of games, skills and obstacles that will help them develop their motor skills, strength, cognitive abilities and social skills.
This class serves as a transition between Baby Ninjas and Lil Ninjas. This is a semi-assisted parent/guardian class that serves to prepare participants to transition into the independent Lil Ninja program where no 'adult helpers' are permitted in the gym.
Utilizing a combination of parkour skills, calisthenics, and obstacle challenges, your Lil Ninja will have a blast all while improving their confidence, social skills, problem-solving abilities, coordination, and strength. THIS IS NOT A PARENT-ASSISTED CLASS.
This is our core program...it's tough. Utilizing a combination of parkour skills, calisthenics, and obstacles, participants are challenged with new tasks each week. Failure is inevitable and participants must learn to accept this. Our program provides students with athletic skills that are transferable to so much more than just OCR and parkour and more importantly helps our students develop 'resiliency' and learn to focus on progress over perfection.
In order for a student to qualify to enter one of these classes they will need to be demonstrating the 3 D's - Discipline, Desire and Dedication. If any one of these "D's" is lacking, the student will not be permitted entry into the competitive program, however will be provided with feedback as to what expectations need to be met in the regular stream in order to move into the competitive program. Ability is NOT a pre-requisite for the competitive program entry, only the 3 D's are. Over time, if the 3 D's are continually being met, the abilities are sure to follow.
The competitive program will follow the same curriculum as our main program, however with the additional class time we will be able to dive deeper into the strategies and techniques used to conquer specific obstacles. In addition, these classes will have a competitive feel with coaches using competition terminology, providing clear rules for what constitutes a "pass" or "fail" on an obstacle and discussing overall strategy with students focusing on their strengths and when to invoke elements like a 're-try'.
Are you looking to compete in a Ninja League, Spartan Race or similar event? Maybe you're just interested in changing up your 'run of the mill' fitness routine. If this is the case, OCR / Ninja race prep might just be for you! Much like our youth programs you will learn basic parkour skills in addition to all the obstacle mastery progressions we teach. On top of this, you can expect some awful, uh we mean wonderful, core fitness component focus sessions each class to round out what may be the most unique and fun strength and conditioning program out there.
