Are kids allowed throw axes at TimberjAXE?
Yes, with parental/guardian consent, we believe that kids should learn the skill of axe throwing
If you are under 18 years of age, we require signed consent from a parent or guardian.
If you are under 16 years of age, we require signed consent, as well as supervision from a parent or guardian.
Do you have a minimum age?
We don’t have a minimum age. We find that most ten-year-olds are able to safely participate. Axe throwing requires a certain amount of muscle strength to do it safely. We know each kid is different, and as such, we will need to ensure that they are strong enough to throw safely.
How safe is axe throwing?
At TimberjAXE your safety is very important to us. We do all we can to provide the proper instruction, coaching and supervision in an environment that is designed with your safety in mind. We feel that axe throwing, while under our supervision, is very safe.
Can I just watch my friends/family throw?
Yes, we love cheerleaders and you are no exception. There is no cost to watch, but we will require you to fill out a waiver before entering the arena.
Can I bring my own axe?
You are welcome to bring your own axe, provided it is approved by our staff and is in good throwing conditions. If you bring your own axe, you can get 10% off the price of admission.
What should I wear?
The only requirement we have is that you wear closed toe shoes. No sandals. Our floors are rough cut lumber so there may be cracks, therefore, we don’t recommend high heels.
Do you serve food or drinks?
We have a concession stocked with snacks and ice cold drinks.
Can I bring my own food and drinks?
You are more than welcome to bring in your own food and non-alcoholic beverages for your party/event.
Do you serve alcohol?
While we don't serve alcohol here at Timberjaxe, we regularly have patrons come axe throwing after supper, or after going for drinks. We would ask that you would use your discretion and that if you've had too much to drink you would sit out of axe throwing. If our trainers feel you are too intoxicated or are a danger to yourself or those around you, they will ask you to take a break from throwing for a while.
Do you cater food for events?
While we do not cater, you are more than welcome to line up your own caterer and we will work with them to ensure you have a successful event. For more info contact us (306) 933-2937.
What kind of axes do you have?
For beginners, we use a 20oz fiberglass or steel handle camp hatchet. We find they are weighted well and work great for learning on. We also have specialty axes available to rent if you want to try something a little different.
Will we get our own target?
Depending on your group size we will determine the appropriate number of targets/lanes based on your group size. Each group will have their own target(s).
Groups of two may share a lane, but you will still have your own target.
Do you have a private room our group can use?
Yes, we have a small room available that can fit a group of twenty people which you can be used during your time here. Contact us for pricing and availability.
Are you insured?

Is there parking?
We recommended the free, two-hour parking on Ontario Ave, there is usually ample room out front. We do have a lot to the south of our location as well.
