How it works

We have up to 30 youth throwing on Monday League Nights for 8 weeks straight! That’s a lot of axe throwing, so make sure to do your pushups! During the 8 weeks, 7 of those will be regulation play (where you will be throwing about 4 matches per night).

The last week is playoff night where the 16 top scoring throwers square off in a double-elimination tournament. The season winner will leave with his/her head held high and under the gaze of admiration from fellow competitors!


  1. All youth playing must have waivers signed by a parent or legal guardian.
  2. It is up to the parent or legal guardian to organize drop-off and pick-up at appropriate times according to the operating hours of the Peterborough Axe Club. In short, we’re not responsible for your child hanging out in the cold with the wolves and bears!
  3. Close toe’d shoes must be worn to play.
  4. An active email is needed for registration.


The cost for an axe-throwing season is $100 + HST.

While you don’t have to bring your own axe to the league (or events), axes can be purchased through us for $20. You can bring your own axe but it must have a wooden handle and be between 1.25-1.75 lbs. Please note, you’re probably going to break an axe at some point (because you’re big and strong) so you’ll want to get a couple.


The Peterborough Axe Club Youth Leagues are for youth 8-14 years of age. HOWEVER, we do need to make sure that youth are strong enough to throw a 1.5 lb hatchet safely. Therefore, some youth may not be permitted to join if the League Host feels that it is not safe for the youth to do so. Please come in and throw some axes before registering to make sure your youth is capable.


Please, please, please, be at the club for 6:30pm at the latest so that we can start on time. Did I mention “Please!”?

Life is busy and maybe you can’t make it out every week. Not to worry, we can catch up on games you missed. You can check out all the details about attendance in the link below.
