We knew this day would come. The American Ninja Warrior Junior competitors are taking on the adults of American Ninja Warrior.
When it was announced that American Ninja Warrior would invite select teenage competitors to take part in the regular reason, we had a feeling some familiar faces would be getting a call. As more of the casting calls have rolled out, the list of former ANW Junior competitors is growing fast.
These kids have lived and breathed Ninja Warrior for almost their entire lives. They’ve already tested themselves in the high-pressure environment of a television show. They’ve honed their skills at such a young age that they’re almost innate. They’re going to send waves through the competition of season 13.
Read on to take a look at some of the American Ninja Warrior Junior competitors who will take part in season 13 of American Ninja Warrior. We’ve also included a photo of the competitor from ANW Jr, along with a recent Instagram post to highlight just how much these young athletes have developed in just a few short years.
Welcome to the undeniable coming of a new age for American Ninja Warrior.
Below are just SOME of the teenage competitors who have been invited to take part in season 13.
