RULES WHILE IN PLAY:

 

  1. Lane must be clear and both throwers in the throwers box before releasing the axe.

  2. Only 2 throwers at a time (one per target) are allowed past the throwers line at a time (other than officials). If more than two are past the line per lane, *disciplinary actions will take place. (see below)

  3. Throws must be taken within 5 seconds of each other. This insures fair play and doesn't allow time for the other throwers axe to fall from target over time.

  4.  If a thrower throws after 5 seconds of the other thrower, this will result in a Throw Fault.

  5. The axe must make approximately 1 rotation in order for it to count.

  6. If the axe is close to making a full rotation (ie. 50% rotation) and a portion of the blade touches and sticks to the target, the throw counts.

 

THROWING:

Broken axes may not be used. Officials ensure the blades of the axes are sharp enough to hit AND stick to the target, but are not razor sharp to the touch.

  1. An axe should never be thrown until a coach has provided a demo and instruction for which the participant has been present.

  2. Grip the axe by the handle and only the handle.

  3. Players are allowed to throw axes in one of two ways: 1 hand holding the axe & over or behind the head. 2 hands holding the axe & over or behind the head. No other style of throws are permitted.

  4. One foot must be on the floor while the axe is thrown.

  5. Foot placement cannot go closer than 12ft

  6. If any part of their foot is over the line after the axe is released the throw is valid and counted.

    1. Players may not step forward, over the line during their axe throw.

    2. This exception is after the axe has been thrown/released and the player's momentum pushes them forward, past the line.

  7. Axes are to be retrieved only when both axes have hit the target or the floor.

  8. Axes shall never be thrown when a participant is picking up an axe from the target area. This will result in an immediate removal of the offending player and banned from returning.

 

 

*Upon an offense needing disciplinary action:
  • The offending thrower/person will first receive a verbal warning.

  • Should similar offenses continue a second time, then the offending player/person will be removed and banned from the facility.

  • The official has the right to remove any player/person from the facility at ANY TIME if they see it to be necessary. With or without warning.
