LEAGUE RULES

I. SPORTSMANSHIP

    A.) Sportsmanship: BigFoot Axe Throwing is dedicated to provide a safe and fun sporting environment. All participants should keep this in mind when becoming involved. Although the games may become intense, you still can be competitive while maintaining good sportsmanship. Any behavior deemed unacceptable by the B&T staff may result in suspension and/or ejection from a game or the league. Each game will have at least 1 paid official. Abuse of officials, referees, opposing players and other BigFoot Axe Throwing staff will not be tolerated. BigFoot Axe Throwing will not tolerate fighting! Fighting will be an automatic ejection from any game and in most cases ejection from the league for the remainder of the season. Any behavior deemed unacceptable by BigFoot Axe Throwing staff may result in a game suspension and/or ejection from the league. Alcohol is not allowed on the throwing lanes and any participants with alcohol in undesignated areas will be required to leave.

        1.) If a player touches another player physically, inappropriately or with intent to harm, despite who may be “right or wrong”, they will be immediately ejected from the game.

                a.) On their second offense they will be removed from the season with no refund.

                b.) On a third offense they will be removed from the season with no refund and banned from the league.

        2.) Remember, this is for fun. No one is going to become a professional by playing in our leagues. Anyone exuding douchebaggery, rudeness or overwhelming ignorance will be ejected and possibly removed from the league as these actions eliminate fun for everyone else.

League FAQ's

WHAT ARE BIGFOOT AXE LEAGUES?


Bigfoot Axe Leagues are recreational axe throwing leagues that are open to men & women who are looking to participate in something truly axe-cellent! Members play once a week (check your location for the specific day) for 8 weeks, which includes 7 weeks of regular play & 1 tournament week. We run leagues by seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall), so be sure to check our social media accounts to stay updated about leagues!




HOW DOES SIGNING UP FOR A TEAM WORK?


Go to bigfootaxethrowing.com/league-signup Click the SIGN UP button for your nearest location Fill out the registration form & pay for your spot If you’re creating a new team, you’ll enter your teammate’s name and email address into the registration form Your teammate will receive an email invite to join your team, and then pays individually




WHY DO YOU CHARGE PER PERSON AND NOT PER TEAM?


Charging per player (the way we do it) - Each player only pays for themself - Allows us to collect every player’s contact information, so we can notify everyone when there are rainouts or changes. This way, it is not the team captain’s sole responsibility to pass information along - Helps keep each player accountable to attend their scheduled game each week Charging per team (not the way we do it) - Leaves the financial burden entirely on one person, the team captain - Makes it difficult to get the proper shirts & sizes to the right players/teams




WHAT IS A SUB AND HOW DO THEY WORK?


A Sub is a player who can’t commit to playing every week but would like to be invited on an as-needed basis Subs are allowed to play for free. If they are going to play on your team more than twice per season, they need to be invited to your roster and paid through the system




ARE SPECTATORS ALLOWED DURING LEAGUE PLAY?


Yes – we can allow up to 6 people per League Lane, though seating may not be available for everyone. Please contact a location for specific questions.




HOW WILL BIGFOOT AXE NOTIFY TEAMS/PLAYERS OF WEATHER ISSUES OR CANCELATIONS?


Since axe throwing is an indoor activity, we don’t anticipate needing to cancel very often. With that said, we are constantly monitoring the weather and road conditions to ensure the safety of all our members We will ALWAYS email participants if we need to cancel for any reason. If you don’t hear from us, leagues are on!




ARE THERE ANY MAKE-UP WEEKS?


There are no make-up weeks built into the season during Summer and Fall leagues. If one is needed, due to a severe weather cancellation, teams will be notified, and the tournament will be pushed back one week. During the Winter and Spring seasons, one week is built into the schedule between the 7th week and the tournament. This is to provide a buffer, should there be a weather cancellation. If no cancellations are needed, this will be treated as a practice or make-up week.
