Lylah MacCall wants to be what every five-year-old wants to be when she grows up: a ninja.

What sets Lylah apart — thanks to a backyard training course that her dad built — is that she has the chance to hone her skills using authentic obstacles modeled after the ones on American Ninja Warrior.

Lylah’s dad Gavin started work on the course — which includes ramps, rope swings and a stuffed-animal peanut gallery — after his daughter flipped a chair in the living room and climbed over it. In addition to building the course, he’s started a GoFundMe page to raise money for new obstacles that will help his “super active little girl train for future Jr. Ninja Warrior competitions.”  

Looks like Jessie Graff should watch her back.
