Archery Tag consists of teams of five players on opposing sides, separated by a Safe Zone. Teams must begin the game with the same number of players.
The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them “out” or scoring the most points in a timed game.
During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines. Players may leave the boundaries through their end-line only to retrieve stray arrows. They must also return through their end-line.
Players are to respect and adhere to the decisions of the referee at all times. Masks must be worn during gameplay. Respect all players. Bows and arrows are to be used only as intended in the context of playing Archery Tag®. Under no circumstance are bows or arrows to used as clubs to knock arrows out of the air or assault other players. Violent or disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated. Obscene language and/or gestures will not be tolerated.
THE OPENING RUSH
Each game begins by placing bows along the end lines and arrows in the center of the safe zone. Player then take a position on their end line. Following a signal by the referee, players rush into the safe zone to gather as many arrows as possible. Then players return to their attack zone to start shooting.
Players are “live” only when in their attack zone. They can only shoot or be shot when in their attack zone.
Players in the safe zone (middle of the field) cannot shoot or be shot.
Players in the safe zone are only permitted to retrieve arrows and return immediately to their attack zone. Players may not stop in the safe zone. Players must be moving at all times. Any player who stops in the safe zone has 5 seconds before a warning will be issued by the referee. A second infraction will result in a 1 point deduction (League Points style) or elimination from the game (Classic Elimination style) at the discretion of the referee.
If teams have more than 5 players, the additional players must stay in a designated area on the sideline. Substitutions are “live” (no stoppage in play). The player leaving the field must hand their bow to the incoming player.
The only timeouts are for equipment safety issues and injured players. On the rare occasion of an injury, immediately notify the referee to stop play and attend to the injured player.
WE MAKE IT A LOT DIFFERENT
Yes, we play Archery Tag in accordance with its official regulations, but also slightly modify them. Archery Games is a concept that allows for many different variants of games and activities, thanks to which the game is never boring either for the participant or the viewer. There are many scenarios of games, ranging from shooting to the target, through variants of the “capture the flag” game and temple defense, deathmachines (each for everyone). We play not only on the sports field, but also on forest areas, old ruins, forgotten places, city parks or in the water. We create a new, unique entertainment.
