If I've never thrown an axe how hard is it?

Throwing an axe has nothing to do with size or strength. Our trained coaches will show you the proper technique during orientation, and you’ll be surprised how easy it is! Once you get good enough, you can start throwing in competitions and help to spread the sport!

What if I have fewer than 6 people to my party?

If you have less than six people in your axe throwing group, then no problem! However, if you don’t purchase all tickets beforehand, then you may be paired with other players. But not to worry, throwing axes is a great way to meet new people! You’ll be axe buddies for life!

Safety First

Don't throw an axe if someone is in front of you or near the target. Keep a clearance area of at least 6 feet surrounding the target.

Gripping The Axe

When you pick up and grip the axe, have a firm grip, similar to how you would grip a baseball bat. An important element to the grip is ensuring that the blade isn't rotated to the left or the right. It needs to be straight so when you release the axe, the trajectory is perfectly straight and will stick to the target.

Steps for Throwing an Axe

Step 1: Place both hands on the axe. Firm like you're holding a baseball bat. Make sure the blade is perfectly straight.

Step 2: Bring the axe back, over your head, similar to the motion of throwing a soccer ball over your head. Lean back.

Step 3: Bring the axe forward, in a fast motion and release with your arms extended forward.
