What is Archery Games?
Archery Games is like dodgeball, but with bows and arrows! We use foam tipped arrows in a game that pits one team against the other. We will run a variety of different game modes in all of our sessions, for more information check-out our: Archery game-modes page.
Is it safe to play?
Yes, absolutely. You will be provided a mask, arm guards, and our arrow shafts come with 2″ diameter foam heads attached. At Archery Games we utilize bows that have a maximum draw weight of 30 lbs and outside bows are strictly prohibited from entering the arena.
Do I need experience to play?
No previous experience is required to play archery tag. You will be provided basic training and sufficient time to practice before your game.
