Ninja Labs Send Athletes to National Ninja League World Championships
MALTA — The Ninja Labs (Saratoga Ninja Lab in Malta and Albany Ninja Lab in Crossgates Commons) will be well represented at the National Ninja League World Championships in Greensboro, NC next week (February 21-32, 2020) when 18 ninjas from the Capital District will join competitors from all over the world to vie for the title of National Ninja League
Each of the local youth ninjas, ranging in age from 7 to 15, along with three of the Saratoga Ninja Lab coaches (some of whom have competed on the hit show American Ninja Warrior), qualified for the World Championships by swinging, climbing, jumping and parkouring their way through various NNL obstacle course competitions throughout the season, including one held at the Saratoga Ninja Lab back in December. Many of the athletes not only qualified at these competitions, but many also podiumed at some of these events, finishing in the top three for their age divisions.
Inspired by NBC’s hit television show American Ninja Warrior, Saratoga Ninja Lab (saratoganinjalab.com) opened in August of 2018 and has taken the region by storm. Driven by its success, less than a year later a second location was opened in Crossgates Commons - Albany Ninja Lab (albanyninjalab.com).
Ninja has become a new way to train and at the Ninja Labs, it’s understood that fitness should always be fun!
The Ninja Labs also provide summer camps, birthday parties, and competition teams.
The National Ninja League (www.nationalninja.com) is a nonprofit formed by a collection of the nation’s top Ninja facilities. Their goal is to promote the sport of Ninja obstacle courses across America and provide an opportunity for all ages to get more involved in this rapidly growing sport.
