These Ninjas are heading to the Seattle/Tacoma course

Their shot at the Qualifiers is just a little over a month away.

The phones are ringing once more! American Ninja Warrior is calling the competitors for the Seattle/Tacoma region. This is definitely one of the more coveted regions of the season. It’s the first time ever that American Ninja Warrior will tape indoors, taking over the Tacoma Dome. That also means the show will be taped during the daylight hours instead of overnight. A controlled environment and a regular night of sleep? Count us in!

Filming will take place on May 11-12. This is also the first time the show has held court in the Pacific Northwest. That makes some Ninjas, who’ve generally had to make quite a trip to take part in the show, very happy.

The casting calls seem to have started on Wednesday, April 3. Not too many Ninjas have jumped on socials to announce their return just, but we are kicking things off with an exciting handful!

Remember that this is just the very start of the calls. If you applied for this region, there’s still reason to keep your phone on you at all time!
