Archery Tag School Holiday Program | Activate Sports
Get your kids active and having a ball these school holidays with Activate Sports’ 2 and 3 hour Archery Tag School Holiday Programs!
Activate Sports is excited to bring the sport of Archery Tag to kids in Brisbane! Archery Tag is a safe, fast-paced and incredibly fun sport that is growing worldwide. Think dodgeball, paintball and archery all merged into one action-packed game!
Archery tag is played on a rectangular field with participants using bows and specially designed foam-tipped arrows so they don’t hurt the opponent. The objective of the game is to hit or ‘tag’ other players or to knock out the centre targets of the opposing teams target board with an arrow. Inflatable bunkers are spread throughout the field for players to hide behind and players collect spent arrows as the game goes on.
Activate Sports run a variety of different game modes to keep children engaged and having a blast! They ensure maximum safety by having all players wear face masks, as well as arm guards for additional protection.
School Holiday Program
The Activate Sports School Holiday program is for children aged between 8 and 14. It only costs $30, which is a significant discount to usual hire fees, and runs for either 2 or 3 hours, depending on the location. No previous experience is required, as Marc (the event host) will teach the kids how to use the bow before the game begins. Once signed in, parent’s are free to leave or stay and watch the action!
The program starts with a safety briefing, followed by an explanation of the rules. Players then get 30 minutes of target practice and specific instruction to fine tune their shooting technique. After this, it’s on to competitive gameplay! Participants will play a variety of different game modes, including classic elimination, first to one hundred, team death match, prison break, medic, treason and last runner standing. (Please note that at the North Lakes venue, the additional hour will be used to play a combination of ball and tag games on the Archery Tag field.)
