We'd be very happy to host a Corporate Team Archery Event for your group on a mutually convenient date.

(A few of the corporations which schedule events with us are Facebook, Intel, Dell, AMD, Home Away, National Instruments, Texas Mutual Insurance, Electronic Arts, ERCOT, Vectra Networks, Austin Children's Advocacy, Glatfelder Insurance, Kerbey Lane, RackSpace, etc., so book now so you're ready for our indoor corporate archery tournaments in FALL 2018!)

SCHEDULING:We can schedule a corporate team event on T/W/Th/F for a max. of 20 people, pending your confirmation. If you would prefer another day or time, please tell us.It's best to allow at least 3 hrs. for a team of up to 10, and about 4 hours for more than 10 participants, as we will form two lines of shooting. We may run over by as much as 30 minutes, depending on everyone's arrival and ability. If this will be a problem, please let us know, so we can pace the event carefully.
ARRIVALS: We'll all start together, so it's good to have everyone arrive on time or together.
PARKING: We have limited parking space for about 8-10 vehicles. Some corporations decide to park at a nearby shopping center parking lot, and then "carpool" to the archery range.
FEE: There is a minimum fee of $180 for 1-6 people, and then $25/person for 7-20 people. The total fee for 10 people is $280. We can accommodate 20 people for $530. If your company requires a separate written receipt for accounting purposes, please tell us in advance so we can have one ready for you.
PAYMENT: When you arrive at the range, you can pay for the session individually or by corporate check payable to Archery Training Center, or by credit card (+4%). All fees must be paid before the session begins.
REFUNDS: If you pay in advance of arrival, a refund will be issued only for cancellations in writing or reductions in attendees when given not less than 24 hours before the session begins.
EQUIPMENT: We provide all equipment necessary during the Corporate Team Event.
DRESS RECOMMENDATIONS: Flat shoes are best, as we stand a lot and throw our weight forward a little, so balance and weight distribution is important. The bowstring can get slowed or entangled in your clothing or hair, so wearing tighter fitting clothes, no wide skirts, and tying your hair back is preferable. In the winter on very cold days, please dress in layers. Longer brim baseball caps often prevent the string from reaching your face, so no caps or shorter brims are better.
WAIVERS: There will be waivers for each archer to fill out and sign when they first come in, and before entering the range. All signees must be at least 18 years old. For those under 18, a parent/guardian will need to sign for them.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: Please let us know if there are any special concepts you would like us to emphasize, or any other considerations which you would like us to take into account.
