Archery Tag ®

(Discover Archery Ltd)

Archery Tag ® can be compared to paintball with rules similar to dodgeball but without the painful experience. Players divide into two teams and hide behind inflatable bunkers, or other obstacles, and try to be the first team to knock out the centres of a 5 spot target on the opponent’s side of the field, or, eliminate the opposing team.

The cost of the event will be free of charge for the students and subsidised by Wilmington Academy. 

If you would like your son/daughter to take part in this exciting opportunity, please complete the Google Form below by Thursday 01 April, 3:00pm.

As spaces are limited, this will be a first-come, first-served basis. Students must attend both days. 

Please can your son/daughter arrive at 9:45am (Minerva Entrance) for registration on both days and bring a packed lunch as there will be no catering facilities available. Students may wear their own clothes and bring a change of clothes (normal sportswear and trainers) for the Multi Sports event.  

If you have any questions regarding the Easter Bootcamp event, please do not hesitate to contact me (carmen.quan@wilmingtonacademy.org.uk). 

 

Yours faithfully,
