Have your kids shown interest in Archery? Archery is as much individual as it is a family adventure. Recently we posted an article about The Importance of Youth Archery. This covered the basics of getting them started and why to start archery early. Now that you have decided that you think your kid is ready for archery, you will have to figure out what equipment to get them. The Archery staff at Coyote Creek is passionate about getting kids introduced to archery. Furthermore, our team wants to help you choose the right equipment to get them started off on the right foot.
The great thing about the youth bows at Coyote Creek, is that we have something for everyone. From the time they can hold one, they can probably shoot it! Oftentimes we notice that it is not necessarily the draw weight that has been a problem for kids. It is the physical weight of the bow that can be more difficult. We often advise parents and guardians to bring their young ones in to be properly fitted by the Coyote Creek Archery Staff, this will ensure that they are properly set up from the start. We have an amazing selection of Youth Bows at our retail store in Rochester, MN. Kids love that our bows come in a wide variety of cool colors to give them some style. Below are some general tips and guidelines about a few of the bows we carry at Coyote Creek. We have included some age recommendations below, to give parents an idea of what to look for.
Diamond Atomic | Ages 4-8 | $219.99
Diamond Atomic, a small framed bow packed with tons of performance! It is available in a wide variety of colors. Both left handed and right handed models are available. With quite a bit of adjustability with draw lengths ranging from 12-24 inches, and poundages from 6-29 pounds! The great thing about this bow is it still gives the shooter accuracy, which builds confidence and makes it more fun. The bow comes fully setup and even includes arrows. One useful piece of equipment I highly recommend getting as well, would be a release (used to shoot the bow). One in particular is the Cobra Bravo release. Now, as with all bows, the Coyote Creek staff can get them fully setup and adjusted, as well as giving them a few tips/lessons to make sure that they are shooting properly.
