Archery Equipment for Youth
There are 3 types of bows.
Longbows are the most simple of the 3 types of bows. They have a very light draw weight and are a great bow to start a youngster on. They are very affordable and easy for children to use. The only disadvantage to these bows, is sometimes children can’t pull enough weight to stick arrows into targets.
A recurve bow is the next step up from a longbow. This type can pull a little more and will stick into the target when a child shoots it. These are a tad more technical than a long bow. (They also are a tad more costly than a long bow.) They are just as easy to shoot as a long bow; they are just a different style.
A compound bow is the elite of the 3 types of bows. These are the most costly. These bows come with more technology. These would be a good investment if your child would like to compete in archery competitions and get further involved in the sport. These bows pull more poundage and have more accuracy as well. The only disadvantage is the cost.
Arrows are an obvious necessity to shooting. Wooden ones work well with long bows. Fiberglass and Carbon also work well with recurve and compound bows. Don’t forget to use field tips.
For all these bows, it would be nice to have finger tabs. These will help protect little fingers and help not get blisters so your child can have a great experience shooting. When your child gets more comfortable and into shooting more, loops can be added, and also, a release.
For a beginner shooter, it might be nice to have an arm guard to prevent string slap.
Quivers also are a necessity to shooting. This holder will help not only protect the arrows, but also it will protect the shooter.
Of course, you must not forget a target. There are simple block targets and paper targets. To throw a twist in there, there are other targets such as 3-D ones (mentioned earlier) that are in a shape of any animal. These targets are all in a reasonable price range and are great fun.
Safety first and always first
No matter what equipment you get or what bow you get for your child, the most important thing is to have fun with them and teach them safety rules and that shooting is a fun sport.
