Dunk Ninja Contest
Do you have what it takes to be the Ultimate DUNK NINJA?
The DUNK NINJA (DN) freesTYle dunk course is designed for solo and 2man team contests and allows action sports athletes to showcase their dunk repertoire, their stamina and their athleticism.
Completing DN requires focus, strategy and fitness. Competitors will be put to the test in ways that will expose any of their weaknesses.
The 2018 DN course includes 2 new elements: The High Jump Dunk (Dunk over a 6, 7 or 8ft challenge) and the Tower of Power drop-in skill (Instead of just dropping in, competitors may perform a skill from the platform to the bed of the trampoline).
DN 2018 will challenge even the best dunkers to not take it for granted.
Each contestant will get 3.5 minutes to complete the course or be disqualified (30 seconds longer than DN 2017). Any competitor whose DN run is longer than 3 minutes will not benefit from the completion time points and will be penalized. A different dunk/skill must be performed on each trampoline with duplicate and triplicate dunks/skills penalized.
The 2018 DN scores are weighted with approximately 50% for Difficulty, approximately 30% for Attractiveness, Virtuosity and Innovation (AVI) and
approximately 20% for completion time. Judges scores combined with the completion time points/penalties will determine final score.
As opposed to 2017 Dunk Ninja where the lowest score won, the highest score will earn the championship in the 2018 upgrade. The revised scoring is based loosely on a 100 point scale.
