Yeah, we got a League! Actually we have THREE leagues. And its getting better with every new season.
INDIVIDUAL – Axe, Knife, and the ever frustrating but SO satisfying No-Spin knife league. These leagues now run both TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY evenings.
We are on a journey to turn Sarnia into one of if not the best areas for axe AND knife throwers anywhere in the world, and we have made so much progress. Read on about our unique Skill Based Ranking that’s sure to provide an exciting, competitive atmosphere for everyone.
Axes and Knives!!!! Together at last. We may be called Valley Axe but we offer more than what the name reveals. Knives are now included in the League options.
Both axe and knife Leagues run simultaneously for our Individuals Leagues. That way there’s no need to choose between them. If you want to do both, then go for it! You don’t need to come in on another night. You can do them both in one visit.
Our Individual League night is going into its 9th iteration and we can’t wait to show you the newest developments.
This is the League for both curious newcomers and seasoned vets. Come by on Tuesdays or Wednesdays any time between 5 and 10pm, practice as long as you’d like and when you’re ready, do your weekly official scores in either axe, knife or both!
It all gets started September 11th for Tuesdays and September 12th for Wednesdays and will run for 12 weeks culminating in a head-to-head tournament on Week 12, November 27th and 28th.
Feeling a bit nervous about jumping into the shark tank? Don’t be. With our unique Skill Based Ranking, you’ll be competitive right out of the gate.
Read on to learn more about the Ranking system.
THE SYSTEM THAT HAS BUILT 4 WORLD CHAMPIONS
Valley Axe’s Skill Based Ranking system is the result of a lot of research, mostly the input of League members both past and present over the past 2 years.
Stepping onto the range among some of the more dedicated League veterans can be an intimidating experience and can often lead the newcomer to ask, “how am I suppose to hang with these killers?”
But don’t be discouraged! The League is designed to build up not just your skills but also your confidence.
When you first join League your skills will be assessed by a Valley Axe team member and you will be given a ranking. Your ranking will decide the difficulty of your throws every week. Newer throwers will start with the basics, while experienced throwers will be expected to take on a greater degree of difficulty.
As you improve in your throwing you will be rewarded with a higher ranking and thus an incremental increase in difficulty to help push you to new heights.
This way we all have something to work for but are not pushed ahead before we’re ready.
The beauty of this system is that it levels the playing field between new and experienced throwers and leads to intense competition that may not exist otherwise.
We are very proud of this system and the proof is in the results. Four different throwers have accumulated 6 World Titles since implementing this system.
This is a great way to get involved in league with just a small commitment. By signing up for a basic membership you are choosing to throw in either the Tuesday League or the Wednesday League. You can choose to be in as many or as few disciplines as you like, from axe to knife and no-spin knife. The cost doesn’t change when you choose more than one! It’s $125 for 12 weeks.

The Premium Membership is the best for bang for your buck. For an additional $25 over the Basic Membership you get full access to the range for practice-throwing all week long. Any time we are open and have lanes available you will have a place to throw Tuesday to Sunday. And with 15 lanes inside and 10 outside, there is rarely a time you cant find space to hone your skills. This is the best deal in any throwing range, anywhere.
