“We have spent months working on the safety issues that go along with shooting arrows at people. It is not as easy as simply sticking a piece of foam on the end of an arrow.As a kid I started hunting at a young age because my grandfather was an avid bow hunter. I shot compounds for most of 30 years, but have now fallen in love with traditional archery. Through my years of shooting and now teaching my own kids the art of archery, safety has always been a huge factor in whatever I do. I am a strong advocate for teaching ethics and safety to the next generation. Archery Tag is not a slap in the face of safety. It is, however, as safe way to teach young kids the safety issues.
We have a lot of fun with Archery Tag and have loved seeing many new comers join in the fun. We at Archery Tag, are very concerned about safety. We have spent months working on the safety issues that go along with shooting arrows at people. It is not as easy as simply sticking a piece of foam on the end of an arrow. Our engineering firm has spent months pouring over design plans, kinetic energy tests, arrow spine tests, stress analysis programs, and redesign the arrow tips to make sure that no one will ever get hurt by the Archery Tag arrows. If Archery Tag was not safe, we would have canned the idea long ago. However, we have spent months of tireless energy making sure we are above reproach in our efforts to keep everyone safe. I created this game with the forethought that my own kids would be playing someday. If I am going to allow my kids to be on the receiving end of an arrow, you can rest assured that it is safe and harmless. We have seen people from all walks of life pick up a bow and join in the fun of Archery Tag. People who have never shot a bow before can get in on the fun.
This is a safe and fun way to introduce all kinds of people to the joy of archery. What better way to teach a child the love of archery than in a non-dangerous manner where no one will get hurt. I planned on waiting until my kids were older to start teaching them archery, but now I can start at a very young age. As soon as my little one could draw back on the string, she was out with an Archery Tag arrow. I have been able to teach her form, stance, and aiming techniques without fear of me becoming the target. How many kids can say they shot their dad with an arrow? I hope you and your kids enjoy Archery Tag as much as my kids and I have. ”
