How to Choose Archery Sets for Kids
No matter which type of bow you choose, always consider the length and draw size. Children typically start with draw weights of about 10 to 15 pounds. They can use a bow with a heavier draw weight as they advance in both age and skill.
Recurve bows are most commonly used in school and youth activities. Longbows are a single piece of curved wood, while compound bows employ a system of pulleys.
Aluminum or fiberglass arrows are a popular choice for young archers as they’re lightweight and highly durable. Keep in mind that the length of the arrow should correspond with the draw length of your bow.
When it comes to youth archery equipment, safety is essential. Consider having them wear finger tabs, arm guards and chest guards.
Some youth archery equipment comes in complete sets to provide kids with the essentials they need for getting started. Always consult product information for specifics on your bow and arrows. Some archery products at DICK’S Sporting Goods are approved for use in National Archery in the Schools Programs (NASP). Shop all NASP archery gear for competitive use.
