Blade Aces Membership

Blade Aces membership fees go toward prizes, awards and operating costs (website, competitor support, marketing & advertisement) of the Blade Aces Precision Action Sports League. These fees also contribute to providing the event insurance for Regional and National competitions sanctioned by Blade Aces.

Membership is valid for one full calendar year (365 days) from the day you sign up. ACE membership is available for competitors who have competed in the same calendar year that they are applying for membership. For example, a competitor who competed in the 2018 Game of Throws in Las Vegas in April is eligible for ACE membership if they apply for membership during 2018. Any lapses in membership dues must be reconciled prior to acceptance of registration for Blade Aces sanctioned events. Only up-to-date Blade Aces members may compete in the Professional Division of Blade Aces events. Members are active if they have competed and paid registration fees for an official Blade Aces event.
