My name is Tom D'Ulisse and I'm a teacher at Kina Awiiya (Formerly named Urban Aboriginal High School). Unfortunately, as often happens in the world of teaching, my time here has come to an end and another teacher will be taking over my duties.
I wanted to say thank you to Archery tag, especially to those who have personally dealt with me as I went through the application process and had the pleasure of using Archery Tag with my students. Your product has brought our students together, introduced them to the idea that being active can also be fun. It has allowed me to provide my students with a unique opportunity to run a program for other beginners in our school board, helping them develop leadership qualities and patience and to develop a level of respect for each other and for the sport of archery.
I want you to know that wherever I go to teach next, IF I'm lucky enough to teach physical education or outdoor education I will do my best to pursue funding, and use my budget to attempt to bring Archery Tag with me to my next site. It has been a wild and amazingly fun ride, I've had nothing but positive experiences working with the wonderful people at Archery Tag, and I can honestly say that my class dynamics changed for the better the minute we started to incorporate the sport in my class. It has built friendships, mended relationships, allowed for many teachable moments and has brought fun into a class where so many of the students haven't been able to smile let alone have fun for personal/family/substance abuse/ addictions/ mental health reasons.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to run this program in my school as a not for profit package privately with my school and it's student's. You have an amazing product and I hope to work with it and you all again in the future.

"Don't buy crap equipment to save $500. Buy something that has never caused an injury and had thought and an engineer behind it. You will be much happier knowing the people playing your game are safe while using equipment that doesn't fail after one day of use. The first time some kid gets a puncture wound from a garbage arrow tip, your business will no longer be a destination for any parent. Don't be the person that ends the fun for the rest of us. I know that Archery Tag® does research, they have engineers design their stuff, and it is safe for use because I have played using their equipment. I won't buy anything but official Archery Tag® equipment now."
"Anyone who might be thinking about adding Archery Tag® as part of their gaming venue: DO IT! My experience with Archery Tag® from my request to become a license to now almost a year has been nothing but great. The owner John Jackson is by far the coolest and most down to earth guy that truly stands behind his products and his customers. I would have never thought I¹d get a call from him first when I initially filed the application. It was great to speak to him and he actually listened and made suggestions on ways to get the word out that I never thought about before. Now almost a year in and we can proudly say we got our ROI real fast. So for those who are trying to increase revenue, adding Archery Tag® is definitely a sure win."
"I was the biggest skeptic out there..."
"It's been 100% safe, we’ve had no issues whatsoever."
"Proven record. You know, the arrows have proven to be perfectly safe... and the mask systems, no concern at all." Rob Kaufhold

"First of all, thank you! We have been really happy with the product. It fits us PERFECTLY and our consepts surprised even us! They are working better than we ever even imagined!! In the coldness we have to keep the players on move all the time (keep them warm) and mixing the archeries with our laser tags needed some new ideas, so i made this kind of a Feeze&Melt strategy.
Main idea is that when the Archery player hit an enemy, he/she will have to freeze. Only your own team member can shoot/melt you back to the game.
With this we have created many different games and got only 100% amazing feedback!
We have already played many times, done many marketing events by tarketing shooting, created new event - Snow Battle in the snow castle Snow Village and we are opening for the summer the games for Archery Tag and Arctic Hunger Games on a daily base to Helsinki´s Winter Hall (-3 degrees whole year around, snow igloos, ice bar, ice restaurant, ice sculptures, etc..)"
"...we [obtained] a few archery products in the market, including a couple of local products in China. After some stress tests to arrow, bow and mask of many vendors, we concluded that Archery Tags®' products were unparalleled in terms of quality and safety." Jungyi

"We have experimented with every type of "safe" arrow we could find, and we are confident that we have the most innovative and safe arrow for our customers with Archery Tag®."
"Archery Tag® has continually listened to customer feedback and pushed yourselves to develop the best foam tip on the market."
"As the innovator, Archery Tag® has been a great partner to us. We are really happy to have been a licensee with them since 2014. The social media buzz when we first got it was overwhelming. TV and radio stations were interviewing us and it was great exposure for us and the game. With a low investment, Archery Tag® has added an extra revenue stream to our facility. The sport is great for all ages and totally safe for kids and adults. I wouldn't see our facility without it now." Jeff Cheng
"From a business perspective, it's great to have been able to bring something truly exceptional and unique to the Middle East. Archery Tag® is an exhilarating experience for children and adults alike and we have been able to establish a valuable additional to both our business and our customers experience at Flip Out Dubai."

"Archery Tag® is an absolutely new way of having fun in Latvia! While we do have a lot of well-known role-play games that require shooting, bringing bows and arrows to our country is something people have never seen before. Which is why our customers were pleasantly surprised of how safe and fun archery can be! After their very first time of playing the Archery Tag® game, we met them again and again with their kids and colleagues. Hence, our customer network is growing which indeed is highly motivating!
Thank you Archery Tag® team for providing this opportunity for our family business establishment!

Thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to talk with me. It was great hearing about your many ideas and I was thrilled to learn that you're always pondering new ways to better the product. Sharing your thoughts and basically your heart, helped to humanize the Archery Tag® product. By learning more about the insight to the vision for your company, I as a licensee am comforted to know that you have our best interest at heart and we are part of the bigger picture.
I'm not sure if you do this enough by listening to you, but please remember to take the time to pause and just enjoy this path that you've led us on. This venture of constant innovation that you're on will never have a final destination, so it's important to periodically celebrate the journey."
"We found that not only was Archery Tag® bringing a new demographic of people into the shop but those people were interested in archery from playing Archery Tag® and often come back to buy a fully setup bow from our pro shop. It has been awesome so see a younger generation become interested in archery through the game of Archery Tag®." Josh Pitts
