What is Archery Games?
Archery Games is a game of combat tag archery that allows 2 teams to battle each other in an arena similar to dodge-ball. The objective is to strike the opposing team’s players in order to eliminate them from the game. The main difference from dodge-ball being that instead of throwing rubber balls at each other you will be equipped with bows, foam-tipped arrows and helmets!
Is it safe to play?
Yes, absolutely. You will be provided a mask and arm guards, and the arrows are foam tipped so even at close range the impact is not likely to cause bruising. At Archery Games we utilize bows that have a maximum draw weight of 25 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.
Are there age restrictions?
REGULAR GAMES:Players must be at least 12 years of age for regular play.
YOUTH GAMES:We have youth hours available on Sunday mornings at noon. This time-slot is designated for players aged 7-11. All of our youth hour bookings have a discounted price of $19.95/person.
Please note: Parents are permitted to play in this session if they choose to (for the same cost of $19.95) but all players during youth hours will be required to use the smaller youth bows in the session.
Can I play a youth game outside of the designated times?
Yes! If you book out the entire arena on a timeslot ($350, up to 20 players) we can run a game with the youth bows (ages 7 to 11) for your game. Please send us an email or phone call if you have rented the arena for a youth game, so that our coaches can have the youth bows prepared in the arena.
We also can run a walk-in youth game on the same day if we have an empty slot on that day. Please give us a call: 402-315-9577 in order to check the availability.
Some of our players are under 12 years of age is that okay?
Except for our designated youth hour (Sundays at noon) our mixed group games are strictly ages 12 and up.
