Atlatls Great Outdoor Individual or Small Group Activity

In this time of social distancing, small groups and less travel, atlatls do offer a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors without a lot of people.

While many of the atlatl meets have been cancelled this year at state parks or public places, a few have and continue to be held in backyards or private locations. Check out the World Atlatl Association Event Page to see the status of events. The Ohio Atlatl Association is still keeping its dates but has switched to private locations as public places grapple with summer of 2020 events.

Events are being held with awareness of small groups, social distancing and masks. If you are unable to get to a group, spend some time by yourself or with a family member practicing your skills. The WAA will try to keep everyone updated about events. Stay safe as our country wrestles with this pandemic.

No doubt- atlatls offer a great sport for social distancing and small groups. Stay safe and well.
