Children's bows

As adults, children can also discover and practice archery. It' s also the perfect sport for them - indeed, many are interested in it. Besides being a hobby, archery also promotes children's qualities such as autonomy and concentration. That's why the children's bow or the junior bow was designed. Although bows are designed to throw arrows, every bow is different. When you choose a bow, consider that your child is going to grow up, so it is better to choose a larger bow instead of the smaller one.

How to choose a bow for a child?

To ensure that your children can practice archery safely, you should choose a bow that fits their morphology. First of all, you must select the draw length and size of the bow making them feel comfortable. However, options are different if the bow is used for pleasure and for a competition.

For hobby use

Bows hobby kits are designed and adapted to children for their pleasure. For maximum safety, choose a sucker-point bow with low-poundage. These bows are designed for 5 to 10 meters shooting, and they can even be used in your garden.

For competition

Very quickly, a child can progress in competition. Opt for a bow with a classic riser. Usually, these bows have detachable but very strong limbs. Their limbs are made of top quality wood. The arrows are made either of aluminum or wood.

Size vs. draw length

The draw length always depends on the shooter. Defined as the distance, it increases with child's growth. The draw length is measured with an arrow graduated in inches. It is necessary to take this value to determine which arrow size your child can use. So, before choosing a bow, it is very important to know your child's draw length.

Tips for choosing your children's bow

To avoid choosing the wrong bow, here are some tips to help you choose your children's bow.

Choosing the right store

Please always choose the place where you buy your bow and its accessories. Opt for a reputable, professional and reliable store. You can also opt for an online archery and get your bow for beginner delivered to your home. Hattila is a reference in terms of online archery.

Choosing the right draw weight

The draw weight depends on the child's physical strength and on the practice he or she intends to do. For a child between 9 and 12 years old, a bow strength between 12 and 16lbs is recommended.

Consider the equipment benefits

A bow can be made with different materials. Every design is different. Choose a bow with solid alloys, but still easy to use.

Choose the right size

Referring also to the draw length, the child's size defines the bow selection. Remember that the draw length will successively change for a child.


As different from each other, no matter what you choose, all bows will be profitable.

  • Longbows are more robust. The limb length helps to stabilize the shot.
  • The short bow is more flexible. Thanks to its energy, the shot is faster.
  • The strong bow lets you shoot at longer distances. On the other hand, it gets tired faster.
  • The weak bow is the most suitable for a beginner. It is more flexible, easy to use and less tiring.
