Archery for Kids
In addition to our conventional archery events we also offer different types of safe archery for those places where space and age range don't allow for the normal archery setup.
We have soft archery with patented soft tipped arrows which are perfect to use with all our soft archery equipment. We also have Archery GB Arrows which are perfect for the smaller archer.
Our inflatable Hoverball archery range measures just 3m wide by 2.5m high and 1.5m deep. Hoverball is great fun and can be setup safely inside or outside in a floor space that's just 5m x 5m. Perfect for gardens, fêtes, festivals, village halls or even car parks! This innovative inflatable archery range opens up the opportunity for anybody of any age from 5-95 to try archery virtually anywhere using the special non-lethal foam tipped arrows. This event can be booked out individually or as part of our Soft Archery party booking.
The patented S.A.F.E. Archery™ Arrow, with exclusive Safe Nock™ and soft foam tip, offers the same flight characteristics as a standard arrow yet is much, much safer. It allows opportunities to shoot indoors safely without special netting. The large foam tip makes it great for the kids to shoot in the back garden – no more lost arrows!
Whether you have been shooting for years or have never picked up a bow, we offer a new way to experience archery. It gets both kids and adults involved with archery together as well as providing a fun activity that enhances eye-hand co-ordination, increases your upper body strength, and helps to develop self-discipline.
ARCHERY GB ARROWS
We use our Archery GB 'Arrows' kit that has been created for schools to introduce young children to archery in a fun and safe way and we love it that much we have incorporated it into our soft archery events.
This 'mini' version of archery provides child-friendly equipment with the arrows having large sucker cups on the end. We also use this kit to deliver archery in almost any setting in schools.
We introduce target archery concepts and skills through fun activities rather than technical instruction. This enables us to use archery as a way of encouraging learning in other areas; for example, maths through scoring, literacy through language, and citizenship though cooperation and self-discipline. These activities provide an alternative and complementary way of developing movement skills (e.g. coordination, balance, and strength), personal, social and mental skills, as well as archery skills.
For kids parties in our archery centre we have several types of soft archery games to choose from:
- Ball blast – knock the balls from the top of the cones (not as easy as it looks!)
- Sharpshooter – shoot arrows through the holes on our swinging target
- Sky High – shoot at foam aerial discs (outdoor event)
- Mini Clout – shoot the arrows into the sky to drop them into the buckets and score
- Tin Can smash – a nice noisy game, knock the stacked cans over
- Castle Siege: shoot the castle defenders and take over the castle!
For ages 9+ we have Archery Tag the safe combat archery game using the same soft tipped arrows. Take a look at our Archery Tag section to see more information.
