Its time for the kids to put down their devices, Mum and Dad to get off the sofas, Nerf Active is a family activity that will bring people together to run, duck, dive & shoot foam darts at each other.

Nerf Active isn’t about just physical exercise it’s about separating ourselves from the screens our children and us as adults have become fixated on, about spending time with our children but more than anything it just about good FUN. Nerf guns are made by Hasbro and they fire foam darts, you will quite often see them sold in supermarkets. Most of the parents out there may have purchased a Nerf gun and then had to yell at the kids to not play it in the house – We are going to give people in the local area the ability to fire their weapons in a more appropriate environment, with the extra safety gear to boot. We will look to work with after schools clubs & hold sessions in leisure centres, so the big kids (mums and dads) can join in too. Buying an outdoor inflatable arena will allow us to hold more sessions throughout parks during the school holidays. Due to the low running costs, it makes Nerf Active a great family bonding experience at a low cost.

What we'll deliver:

  • Arrange evening leisure centre/gym slots (4 per week)
  • Take out the relevant insurance policies
  • Tender to schools out of hours clubs
  • Purchase the required equipment and inflatable arena

Why it's a great idea:

Why is it a good idea? We spend a lot of time indirectly causing family separation by letting our children go to clubs or get lost in a games consoles or devices and then we need to fit time in to go to the gym or other fitness classes, causing family homes to become a revolving door of non bonding activity. Doing anything as a family these days seems so costly or it’s directed more towards the children than the whole family. Well Nerf Active is low cost, fun for boys, girls, mums and dads and its not just about the physical fitness. By putting down those devices and just having fun with loved ones you are going help your mental health. We all have an inner child that wants to jump on the bouncy castle or go down the big slides at the pool parties….. We want people to embrace that inner child and show their children that they aren’t afraid to have fun and that they want to spend more time as a family. It's so much more than a foam bullet.

Steps to get it done:

  • £3,170.80 Will enable Nerf Active to launch without the outdoor inflatable arena

We aim to keep the costs of the Nerf Active classes in schools, gyms and leisure centres down to a minimum and to do this private hire will be available over the weekends for events or parties. The money from the private hire service will be reinvested back into Nerf Active to maintain equipment, purchase more darts, guns and potentially grow Nerf Active into other areas. In the event of lower capital purchase costs can be achieved through negotiation, surplus finding will also be reinvested into Nerf Active.
