Knife Throwing Clubs

Listed below are a few throwing organizations. They all offer something different, from annual competitions, to contests, or newsletters. Best of all, you get to be a part of something you really enjoy, along with other people who share the same "zeal for throwing steel" as you do.

And you usually get a cool patch and membership card when you join too! Just be sure to contact the club before signing up to find out exactly what you get for your money. Ask any questions you may have and they'll be happy to answer them for you. Best of luck and have fun!

The Willow Creek Throwers (Breckenridge, MN)
My name is John Backowski. I live in Breckenridge, MN. Our club's name is The Willow Creek Throwers. An official summer schedule that includes 2 meetings a month will take place. We have decided to start out as more of a club rather than a league simply because the people interested in throwing are very new to the sport. We'd like for everyone to be acquainted with throwing, safety, and competition rules before participating in any official leagues. Once we are more established, we plan to throw to the AKTA standards for throws/meets following the AKTA rules. We are located in the upper midwest and hope to provide a place to throw and educate people about knife throwing as a sport. Any questions please contact John Backowski.

Knife Throwing Lists

A List is a tool that enables you to keep in contact with a bunch of people that all share the same interest. For instance, if I found a new way to build a target and wanted to share it with some other knife throwers... I just send out a message to the List and it automatically gets sent to everybody that has registered! It's a great way to share ideas, exchange tips, and meet other throwers in your area!

The Thrower List
A list about throwing weapons, for sport, survival, and self defense. We talk a lot about throwing knives as most of us are knife throwers, but any other sort of thrown weapon including axes and hatchets, spears, atlatl, boomerangs, bola, sticks, steel balls, and casting weapons like whips are also discussed.

The Blade Thrower List
A group of knife throwers dedicated to the art of instinctive knife throwing, involving two main types of throwing, one is the method of throwing the knife with no spin, and the other, of throwing the knife with a half spin. Both these methods are used for throwing knives from unmeasured distances. Multi spin throwing will also be discussed, but is not the main objective.
