Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of equipment do you use?
- What kind of arrows go with this party?
- Pointed (non-blunted) arrows unless requested otherwise.
- Why is there only one target?
- We work with 2-4 archers at a time so that guests can see how they are doing with relation to their friends. After coaching over 3,000 new archers we've found that sharing the target makes this range portable, compact, and easy for the instructors to supervise for safety. Don't worry though - with this rotation waiting time is kept down to a minimum and everyone has plenty of time to shoot.
- I'm an adult. Why is the target short?
- For safety. Arrows launch on an upward incline at short distances and beginning archers of all ages tend to aim higher than they need to which frequently results in "high" shots. As a result we follow the NASP (National After School Archery Program) standards in believing that targets closer to the ground help beginners to keep their shots where they expect to hit and in a contained area.
- Does everyone get their own equipment?
- It depends on the group. We bring a variety of bows and share them between archers as needed based on their strength and height. Whenever possible we try to assign one shooter per bow. Each archer is assigned to their own arrows, quiver, and arm guard for the party duration so that they can tell their things apart (and know when to brag when their arrow is the one in the gold!).
- Do people need to know how to do archery before this party?
- No, no prior experience is required. Our staff teaches from the very beginning steps up to fun games while at an event.
- My child's sibling wants to shoot too. They're five. Can they?
- Possibly. If time permits and the child is listening and working 1:1 with a coach they may be able to try it for a round. This party is designed for ages 8+ as groups of younger children simply do not have the attention span to participate.
- I have boys. Can you send a boy coach?
- All of our instructors are experienced in working with both boys and girls. We do not discriminate based on gender and strive to send the best available instructor to you. As a result we do not take gender or specific person requests.
- We are committed to giving your guests the experience of a lifetime while maintaining a safe and learning environment. Photographs of your location prior to your event date are required before dispatch on this party.
- Signed NFAA / USA Archery shooting waivers are required on any people wanting to do archery at your event.
- We can accommodate some guests with special needs (such as guests in wheelchairs, deafness, and partial amputations) as long as the guest is not a danger to themselves or others. Please let us know in advance if a guest with special needs will be attending so that we can let you know if we can accommodate them with specially configured equipment prior to your event.
