League Code of Conduct

Axe Throwing League Rules

Our goal is to promote competition through sportsmanship and fair play. Our league events should be played in a sportsmanlike manner. Although competition may become intense, we expect our participants to maintain a high degree of sportsmanship up to and after the final throw.

Our Code

As a participant in any Dueling Axes tournament or event, you must pledge to:

  • Respect the game, play fairly, and follow all rules and policies.
  • Accept and respect the decisions of Dueling Axes officials.
  • Demonstrate good sportsmanship before, during and after games, win or lose.
  • Be responsible for the sportsmanship of teammates and assist in maintaining a respectful environment for all participants.
  • Be courteous to opposing players, teams, officials, spectators, monitors and facilitators, and treat all players and officials with respect.
  • Help to maintain and keep all equipment and surroundings at the facility in good condition.
  • Obey all facility rules, while respecting all equipment, common areas, playing areas, parking areas and surrounding neighborhoods.
  • Refrain from the use of abusive language or profanity including, but not limited to: contemptuous, discriminatory or denigratory words or actions concerning race, color, language, religion, gender or sexual orientation
  • Not engage in any behavior that would endanger the health, safety or well-being of any player, official staff member or spectator.
  • Not engage in verbal, written or physical threats or abuse aimed at any participant, official, staff member or spectator.
  • Not initiate a fight, scuffle or exchange with any individual including, but not limited to: pushing, shoving, punching, kicking, verbal threats or harassment.
  • Not use alcoholic beverages at any location unless permitted by the facility/venue.
  • Not allow, use or encourage illegal drugs at any location.
  • Wear/use all required and issued equipment and/or uniforms.


Sports are filled with judgment calls and, as a result, disputes between players, opponents and staff may occur from time to time. However, it is important that participants respect and handle all disputes that may occur in a civilized manner. No one may argue/protest a call made by an official. Protests for player eligibility or rule misapplications/misinterpretations are time-sensitive and must be made before the next throw. All decisions made by on-site Dueling Axes officials must be respected and obeyed. Any feedback regarding rules, players, officials or staff members should be brought to the attention of management during normal business hours in written form. Any behavior deemed unacceptable by management may result in a verbal warning, ejection, suspension and/or expulsion as outlined below. Repeated Code of Conduct violations by the same player or team could result in an expulsion from the league without refunds. All Code of Conduct violations during and outside of matches will result in disciplinary measures.

Disciplinary Procedures

Upon an offense needing disciplinary action, it is recommended that the league official issue disciplinary action in this order:

  • The offending thrower will first receive a verbal warning.
  • Should similar offenses continue a second time, then their most recent match points will be brought to 0 and the match will count as a loss.
  • Upon a third offense by the same player, the offending player will be suspended from the season or tournament.

A league official is not required to follow disciplinary measures in this order.
