Your source for updates about the sport of axe throwing, the NATF and our member organizations.
It's never too early to start planning! To better support expanded competition, we've made a few changes to the qualification process for the 2018 - 2019 NATC. These changes are designed to strike a balance between the growth of the sport, player freedom and fairness, and can be found at the link below.
All existing league members, it is important to stay up-to-date on these changes as they pertain to the entire 2018 league year and could impact how you decide what leagues to participate in. Let the countdown to #NATC2019 begin!
NATF member Rage Axe Throwing Center in Montreal was recently featured on the CBC.
A regular at Rage Axe was featured in the article, "Max Machado owns two axes: a hatchet and a big axe. But they're not for chopping wood — they're for throwing at indoor targets.
He's one of 16 Montrealers who spends his free time at Rage: Axe Throwing Montreal, with axes in tow, to participate in the venue's axe throwing league for eight weeks."
Nick LaFace, from the NATF explained that "axe throwing's popularity has grown steadily in the last four years... 250 axe throwing leagues running among NATF member venues..."
CityNews recently named our 2018 NATC champion, Straun Riley from BATL Pickering the Athlete of the Week.
"Straun Riley is ranked #1 by the national axe-throwing federation. The 26-year-old only started axe throwing three years ago, and is our athlete of the week!"
