The BATL Oath

New Oath for league play is launched! We hope you love it!

League players gave us feedback that it would be good to update the Oath (which was launched in 2006). We agreed – it needed to be more gender inclusive. So we are pumped to say that we listened to your feedback and the revised Oath is here and ready for leagues! This revised Oath will be used across BATL for all leagues going forward.

You will still recognize the original Oath energy and phrasing but we think it is an improved version being gender neutral and better reflecting the focus on community, people, and competition.

Remember times of old,
And legends that were told,
Of family gathered ‘round,
As Champions were crowned
We honour them this day,
And pray our axe to stay.

What a great night we had. Elliot our coach was awesome, informative, great coaching and great fun. Our whole party all had the best time, and would love to do it again


Stopped by the open session to throw. Picked up the throws pretty easy thanks to coach Jeremy. My son and I had a great time. He showed us some games to play and explained everything clearly. For a first time the hour we spent was sufficient. Will come back.


Walked in at the last minute, Jen and Chantal told us walk in time had passed, but that they were gonna squeeze us in so we could try axe throwing for the first time! Thanks for the hospitality and the great service!


Excellent, helpful, and professional staff assisted our large group and helped make our night that much more fun. our group is booking another event soon and can’t wait to go again!

When is league starting?

US venues that are currently open already have leagues underway and Season 4 will be starting in July. Check with your local venue for specific details. All our Canadian venues are in the planning stages of reopening (as at June 28th) and we will email and advise on social media when league can start at each venue.

What happens with my annual pass I purchased before the COVID shutdown?

Annual passes are valid for 5 seasons of league, typically this would mean that you would be re-purchasing your pass around the same time each year. BATL will honour 5 consecutive seasons of league per pass (resuming after your home venue begins leagues again). Expiration will vary depending on the purchase date.

What happens to my Season 2 payment from 2020?

BATL will honor all previously paid season fees as the new season begins. If you for some reason are unable to return to league during the first season we restart, your credit can carry over to when you are able to return. Refunds are also possible if you are not able to return.

What's happening with IATC this year?

Check out the announcement on the IATF new page.

What should I do if I have questions or concerns?
