yeah, all that tech crap really turns a kid on to the sport[8|]...If ya want em to stick to it, let em have FUN. When they ask you how to get better, then ya start on form. Like I said, a child wants to see the arrow stick in something, period.  A little coaching on the very basics, yes. If ya start preachin about all they are doing "wrong" they aint gonna want to play. Let kids be kids, let them set the pace, and most important, enjoy letting them enjoy. Were talkin children here.

          I have to disagree! My daughter has no problem being told how to shoot, how to hold the bow, etc! I'm not so sure, allowing them to start out "sloppy" is the best route to take. Yeah, keep it fun, but, if you dont teach them to shoot "properly" in the begining, they will more than likely develop "bad habits" that will be harder to correct down the road. Hey, maybe I'm wrong but I think you should teach them "right" from start!

What do I know, I'm only NAA and NASP certified and have been responsible for approximately 4000 people learning how to shoot over the last 2 years.

I just purchased my 11 year old son the mission menace by mathews! its a bow with great draw length adjustability as well as poundage! The bow will grow with him and go to legal hunting poundage! alot of other bows will not allow this without buying other limbs or even worse a new bow! so yes its a bit pricey (249bow  350set up) but well worth it in the long run!!

I will be heading up a really cool ministry at my church this spring.  The setup is exactly like Highlander Archerys' pics above.  We will be using the Mathews Genesis bows (fingers) to teach the kids.
 
I'm looking forward to it!!
