About this event

After 2 years of COVID protocols, venue closures and capacity restrictions, the IATF is proud to announce several events leading up to and including IATC 2022 in June in Toronto. This year we are hosting additional tournaments the week of IATC 2022 to allow all skill levels to compete against people from all over the world in Toronto this summer. We can’t wait to have you all come and experience Toronto in the summer!

DAY 1- Thursday June 9th

We'll start the week off with a Doubles Tournament!

This tournament will use a Pool Play format rather than a Double Elimination. The Pool Play tournament format starts with a group stage, where players are divided into groups of 4 and play everyone in their group once, totaling 3 matches within their group in a 3 out of 5 round match format before any elimination takes place. Once all Group Stage matches are complete the top 2 from each group move onto a single elimination tournament bracket. That means that every competitor will have a minimum of 3 matches with their registration fee.

  • $100 registration fee per team
  • 9:00 am registration and practice

Skills and Canada vs U.S.A. Tournament -Friday June 10th Evening

After a two year hiatus, the Challenger Series is extremely grateful to be able to present the third installment of Team Canada vs Team U.S.A.: Battle for the Van Os Vase. The IATF is excited to include this event in the official itinerary of IATC 2022 events.

This time we are back, BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER, with an all new, 2-part event format that will truly showcase the best players from each country competing against each other in a series of fun and unique events.

For the first time ever, a qualifying round, where you can earn your place on a team, will be run on the evening of Friday, June 10th at BATL Portlands, after the conclusion of the “Close But No Cigar” Tournament.

The Team Canada vs Team U.S.A Finals will be held on Sunday June 12th at BATL Pickering; after the conclusion of the IATC Finals.

In the Qualification Round, players will compete in three skills events against their compatriots for a chance to represent their country. The three events are Underhand, Ambidextrous, and the Kitchen Sink (a mix of 1½ Rotation, 2 Rotation & Big Axe throws). The top scorers from each skills event will advance to either Team Canada or Team U.S.A.

Team Canada and Team U.S.A will compete in the Finals in a variety of brand new and classic Challenger Series events, including individual and team games that are sure to be out of this world; now is the time to sharpen your skills!

Not from Canada or America? You can still qualify and represent your country in the Qualifying Round, and individual Finals events. If you throw well enough to qualify, we will slot you onto either Team Canada or Team U.S.A. depending on preference/availability.

The $50 entry fee includes guaranteed participation in all three qualifying events (Underhand, Ambidextrous, and The Kitchen Sink), the chance to represent your country in the Finals, and an official Team T-shirt!

HOMECOMING

  • JUNE 12TH 10:00AM - WHENEVER THE PARTY ENDS!
  • BATL PICKERING

With IATC officially moved to the summer, and the banquet halls of the GTA fully booked with weddings for the foreseeable future due to COVID, this year we are unfortunately unable to present prom in the indoor hall setting it was in the past. We have taken the opportunity to reimagine what Axe Prom can be in an outdoor setting and still bring all the things that made prom great to this new environment. We present to you, Homecoming.

Homecoming will be a full day for getting together to celebrate our axe throwing community, bearing witness to incredible competition and honouring the champions of this year's events at an indoor/outdoor party hosted at the BATL Pickering venue.

The events of the day include hundreds of spectators cheering on the competitors of the IATC 2022 Finals and the CAN vs USA Skills Finals, followed by the Axe Throwing Awards Ceremony and this year's Homecoming Party to take the day well into the night. The indoor and outdoor viewing areas we have secured can accommodate hundreds of spectators comfortably for all of our party needs.

We have secured a massive outdoor space behind the BATL Pickering venue to make sure that we can comfortably hold hundreds of spectators and guests all day while everyone can watch and enjoy the competition live and on our giant projector screens. The loading bay doors of the Pickering venue will also be open so that the indoor and outdoor space is connected and feeding off of each other’s energy throughout the day.

After the Awards Ceremony, the Homecoming party will have a live DJ blasting tunes to get your body moving. There will be food available for purchase all day from our amazing friends at Cherry Street BBQ (Best BBQ in Toronto!) and plenty of bars to make sure you can keep yourself hydrated. Whether you are inside the BATL Pickering venue catching up with friends, under the tents on our giant outdoor patio, or getting your picture taken at one of our photobooths, we are sure this is going to be the Axe Throwing party of the year.

YOUR $50 HOMECOMING TICKET INCLUDES:

  • Spectator admission for the IATC Finals starting at 11:00 am
  • Spectator admission for the CAN vs USA Skills Championship Finals at 3:00 pm
  • Admission to the Homecoming Axe Throwing Awards Ceremony where trophies will be presented to all the winners from the various tournaments and competitions throughout the week
  • Admission to the Homecoming Party with DJ and dancing following the Axe Throwing Awards Ceremony

AT THE PARTY:

  • DJ and dance floor
  • Outdoor projector and televisions showing the live stream of the IATC and the CAN vs USA events
  • Food available for purchase all day from Cherry Street BBQ (Menu coming soon)
  • Drinks available for purchase all day, including beer tents for shade when needed.
  • Professional Photo Booths (just like at Prom in years past)
  • Tents and tables
  • 600+ person capacity

As we look into dates for 2023 to make sure we can secure a Prom space, join us in the meantime for Homecoming, it promises to be the party event of the summer and you don’t want to miss it!
