Ninja will challenge your technique, strength and conditioning through a variety of obstacles that range from very easy to very difficult.

Our Ninja Training Course is a great way for those new to the sport to start their journey. It also offers more seasoned athletes an opportunity to hone their skills and push their limits.

Our coaches are experienced athletes who together have competed in hundreds of obstacle course races and ninja competitions. They now bring their passion and expertise in the sport of Ninja to the Y.

The Y’s Ninja Training Course was made possible through the generosity of a legacy gift from Ann Eaton. We are eternally grateful.
