COMPETITION RULES AND SCORING SYSTEM
Our scoring system has been developed to ensure that ninjas in the tournament will truly be competing against the obstacles (and not each other) and that there is always a chance at redemption! Here's how it works: at each monthly qualifier, ninjas will compete in Course Runs and Skills Challenges to earn as many points as they possibly can. At the end of the four qualifiers, total points will be tallied and those competitors that meet a threshold number will advance to the championship! Certain advantages will be awarded to those ninjas who earn the most points throughout the qualifying season. More details to be sent to registered competitors.
Course Runs: As the main event of each qualifier, this is the portion of the competition where ninjas can earn the most points. During each Course Run, ninjas will earn full points for each obstacle they complete up until they fail an obstacle. Once a ninja fails to successfully complete an obstacle, they will continue to earn partial points for each remaining obstacle that they complete. So for example, Competitor 1 completes obstacles 1-6, fails on obstacle 7 and then completes the remaining obstacles 8-10. Competitor 1 would earn full points for obstacles 1-6, 0 points for obstacle 7 and partial points for obstacles 8-10.
Point Thrusters: In addition to the regular obstacle points, those ninjas feeling brave will have the opportunity to take extra challenges and earn bonus points ("Point Thrusters") for their efforts! Point Thrusters will come in the form of additional obstacles and difficult add-ons to already existing obstacles. For example, if a regular Course Run is 10 obstacles, one Point Thruster may be earned in a bonus 11th obstacle. Another example would be one obstacle that has two paths to completion - one is easier and the other more challenging. If you complete the harder route, you would earn a Point Thruster. Point Thrusters are a great way to make up for otherwise missed points, or to keep adding to your point tally. But they are not without risk!
Skills Challenges: At each Skills Challenge, ninjas can earn a certain number of points based on their individual performance. For example, during a rope climb ninjas will have 1 minute to climb as high as they can. 1 point will be earned for climbing up to 15 feet, 2 points for climbing 16-25 feet, and 3 points for climbing anywhere above that.
Perfect Score Qualification: As a twist, you can also earn yourself an immediate ticket to the championship competition if you receive a "perfect score" during any single qualifier. That means if you full clear the entire Course Run, collect all of the Point Thrusters and receive the maximum number of points in the Skills Challenge you will be automatically entered!
