What is Star Throwing?

Star Throwing is a target sport, just like axe throwing. Players stand behind a foul line, at least 10 feet from the target and try to throw a set of throwing stars into the target. The targets are labeled like most target sports, with the highest points in the bullseye, and decreasing the further your star lands from the center. At the end of the game, players add up their throws and the highest score wins. Every place has slightly varying rules, but those are the basics.

When Is Star League?

While we fine-tune the star league format, current league players can play for free during axe leagues after they’ve scored a match. Non-league members can join during All You Can Throw Mondays from 6-9pm.


Star league utilizes the standard IATF target with 1, 3, 5, and 7 (clutch) zones. The star is scored at the innermost point touching the board. For example, if there are points touching both the 3 and 5 zones, it scores a 5. Clutch is only open during the fourth heat.


Throwers will throw a set of 3 stars, from 3 different distances, in 4 heats. The first set of stars is thrown from 10 feet. The second set of stars is thrown from 15 feet. The third set of stars is thrown from 18 feet. After all 3 distances have been thrown, the process is repeated 3 more times until a total of 36 stars have been thrown. Your top 5 scores from the season will be added together for your final score.


Each week, throwers can be scored once per night. Throwers in multiple leagues may be scored separately for each night. For example, if you throw on Wednesday and Thursday, your Wednesday throws will be counted separately from your Thursday throws.

How good do I have to be before I can play in a league?
