Lylah, who is five, can now begin training for "American Ninja Warrior" in earnest, thanks to the DIY ingenuity of her most excellent dad.
Father Gavin MacCall built a back yard course for his daughter Lylah at their home in Denver, Colorado. Dad's Facebook video shows stuffed animals in the crowd, cheering her on.
From USA Today:
“The day she turned the green chair around and climbed over it was the birth of the first (Ninja Warrior-inspired) course,” MacCall told a USA Today. He says his daughter spends plenty of time at the playground and climbing on “the parking cement ‘thingies,'” as she calls them. Creating new courses for Lylah “is fun for me, too,” he says.
Dad builds Ninja Warrior course for his daughter
There's a Gofundme to help his daughter get more training equipment.
Her practicing everyday on the playgrounds around our neighborhood has really given her the strength for this course. This years course got much more involved and would not fit in the house. There are bigger plans for next year and Lylah could use some support. Visit her GoFundMe page if you want to help out.
This super active little girl would love more opportunity to play and train for future Jr. Ninja Warrior* competitions. With funds raised we can build new obstacles get some scaffolding to experience new training techniques.
(*Jr. Ninja Warrior competitions are completely made up by Lylah’s Dad)
