About the North Central Ninja Series
We are striving to promote local athletes in the region (IA, MN, WI, NE, SD & ND) by providing a competition exclusive to residents of those states. Our different brackets allow you a more accurate placement in the region!
SEASON 4 will have ~$10,000 in total series prizes! As part of this prize money, each Qualifier gym will be giving away $700+ in prizes and/or cash at each qualifier. (Each gym owner may decide how to allocate prizes.)
All you need to do is compete in one of our qualifiers this season to see if you have what it takes to make it to the finals! The NCNS Finals will be in November
at Ninjas United in Maplegrove, MN. The finals event will have prizes and money. We want to crown the Regional Champions!
