XOL COMPETITOR BYLAWS
The sport of NinjaKour is all activities related to training and the development of skills in the disciplines of free running, gymnastics, rock climbing and martial arts based tricking with the purpose of navigating as quickly, efficiently and effectively through obstacles.
The mission of the XOL is to create a friendly but competitive team environment in the sport of NinjaKour.
League Age Divisions:
Age divisions will be determined by what age the child will be on March 31.
+ Ages 6 to 8
+ Ages 9 to 12
+ Teenage Division
Teams will consist of five competitors with a maximum of 12 teams per age division. If all 12 teams per age division per Ninja Gym are filled then a second league of teams will be started. NinjaKour(name of gym)Roosters(team name) Division 2 will compete until there is a winner of that division. That division will then compete in house with Division 1.
Names of Teams:
When each competitor registers they will find the local ninja gym they want to be a part of and register with that gym directly.
An XOL uniform shirt will be provided to you by your gym and is yours to keep. You will receive one shirt for the fall and spring season and remain on the same team if age applicable. The remainder of the uniform is either shorts or parkour style pants which are not loose and will not get caught on the obstacles. An appropriate shoe which is light and able to grip the obstacles is the responsibility of the team member. Some options are Ollo’s, NB Fresh Foam Zante’s and surprisingly regular “tennis” shoes are not a bad option. A soft flat surface is best.
Rules for Selected Teams
Once Gym owners have selected teams the teams must match at the beginning and the end of the season. This is especially important for the winter season for the teams at the beginning of the season to match the teams at the end of the season. This is even more paramount for the winning teams going into National Finals or they will be disqualified. An exception to this would be if an Ninja Team member was hurt during the season and out for the remainder of the season then a replacement can be found. The replacement; however, must be integral to winning the in house championship. This means they must have participated in at least one regular season meet and then the championship to move on to Nationals. This is provided they win.
