Kids Classes


All classes are designed and led by our Manager of Course Operations, Ethan Swanson, along with our team of instructors. Coach Ethan has competed on American Ninja Warrior for the past 3 seasons and made it to the 2016 ANW Finals- of over 70,000 applicants, he was 1 of 17 who made it to Stage 2 of the Vegas Finals.

The Beginner Ninja class will focus on tackling the obstacles we’ve all seen on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior! Ninjas are not required to have any prior experience with obstacles. They learn how to approach new challenges safely while having fun and exploring movements. Instructors set goals and challenges for students which help them gradually develop solid fundamental skills.
The Intermediate Ninja class builds on the foundation of Ninja Warrior strength and movement. Ninjas must be able to ascend the 8 foot Warped Wall, do 1 pull up, complete the Quintuple Steps, Ring Swings, and Balance Beam.
The Advanced Ninja class is made for those who want more of a challenge. Ninjas must be able to ascend the 10 foot Warped Wall, do 3 pull ups, complete the Blue Monkey Bars, Red Cliff Hanger, and Jumping Spider. They will learn complex obstacle techniques, build grip and upper body strength, and become more confident.
This class is an introductory class to basic tumbling skills, including bridges, handstands, cartwheels and round offs. Goal is to make movements fluid and powerful. Students will learn the techniques to achieve a standing back handspring and connected roundoff back handspring.

What our customershave to say about us

We just threw my daughter’s 6th birthday party here and it was wonderful! They were very helpful and accommodating. Our guests had a great time and the staff assigned to help our party could not have been nicer. I would recommend this for a party venue (or just a fun open play/class activity) to anyone!Hannah B.

I brought my 11YO son today for open gym and he absolutely loved it! It definitely became more crowded after 12:30, but the staff was great and offered assistance when requested. The obstacles were just like the show and are easy to try, but challenging to master. We will be back for sure!Amy J.
