Extreme Archery is an action-packed sport modeled after the widely popular Archery Tag® brand. Enjoyed by people around the world, Extreme Archery is a mix of Dodgeball, Paintball, and Archery. Teams of athletes compete against each other by shooting foam-tipped Non-Lethal Arrows at each other from opposite action zones. Points are earned by hitting opposing team members with arrows, catching arrows in flight shot by opposing team members, and shooting out targets located on the attack lines. With a stellar safety record since the inception of Archery Tag® in 2011, the sport’s creators maintain focus on innovative product development to preserve the highest standards of safety.
