What is Archery Tag®?

  • It is a combination of dodgeball and paintball using bows and foamed tipped arrows.​

How do I play?

  • 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 tag the opponents and 2) to knock out the five discs of the opposing team’s target.  You eliminate a player by tagging 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 “tagged” player can be called back into the game when a target spot is knocked out or when a teammate catches an arrow.

Who can play?

  • Minimum age is 7 years old. 

What do you need?

  • UpShot Archery will provide the equipment needed to play and only Archery Tag® face masks will be allowed.

Does it hurt?

  • Players experience virtually no pain when "tagged" with our Archery Tag® arrows.  

What is Archery Tag® Hoverball?

  • Hoverball is an inflatable practice area.  This is will allow you to get comfortable with handling the bow before you start game play.


What should I wear?

  • For your safety and comfort, we advise that you play in clothes that allow you to move with ease and tennis shoes.
