Axe Throwing Awareness Sessions

The interest in axe throwing as an activity within Scouting has grown during the last 12 months

No permit is required but to promote good practice, earlier this year Norfolk Scouts offered to provide a small number of Axe Throwing Awareness Sessions looking POR and the Scout Associations rules for the activity. The sessions cover safe range management and the techniques of throwing axes specifically designed for throwing.

The second such session was held recently at the 2nd Dereham Scout HQ with 12 adults from across Norfolk taking part. All participants improved their throwing techniques and accuracy during the practical session.

Another session is planned for November and a few places are still available. If you would like to take part, please email
