Archery Tag® offers a unique and fun way for people of all ages to enjoy archery!
Archery Tag® is played similar to dodgeball with our bows and patented foam-tipped arrows. This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate family-friendly experience that engages everyone. Don't miss out on Tag... The game you never outgrow!
Two teams, consisting of 5 players each playing opposite one another, are separated by a "safe zone." Each team also has what we call a "5-Spot Knockout Target." There are two objectives: 1) to hit the opponents, and 2) to knock out the five discs of the opposing team's target. You eliminate a player by hitting him or her with an arrow, or by catching his or her arrow. The 5-Spot Targets work to save a "life" of one of the players. A "hit" player can be called back into the game when a target spot is knocked out or when a teammate catches an arrow.
Unlike some other sports, the only safety equipment required to play Archery Tag® is a facemask. Players experience virtually no pain when "hit" with our Archery Tag® arrows.
Arrows should be used only with Archery Tag® Bows, and will in no way be used in any other type of bow (compound, recurve, longbow, or crossbow, etc.). Failure to adhere to this rule can result in equipment damage, personal injury, and loss of your Archery Tag® License.
Archery Tag® exists to introduce individuals to the sport of archery through a safe, fun, and unique archery experience.
Our vision is for Archery Tag® to become a mainstream sanctioned global sport at the collegiate, professional, and Olympic levels.
Archery Tag® was created by John Jackson, the founder of DeerSpace®, Instinct Archery™, and Global Archery Products, Inc.®. In the spring of 2011, while working on a new archery product, there was the idea of placing a foam tip on an arrow and shooting each other with it. Within an hour or so the first prototype and a new sport was born! Over the past three years, John has been humbled and amazed to see how Archery Tag® has grown from a simple idea into a worldwide sport that is now enjoyed in dozens of countries spanning six continents.
As John travels around the United States, and other parts of the globe, he witnesses the same phenomenon: people of all ages, genders, and nationalities enjoying this unique sport that combines elements of dodgeball with the timeless sport of archery. His passion and commitment to share traditional archery with both young and old continues to be strong and unwavering as he diligently works to make the archery accessible and fun for everyone.
