Archery is a fun, exciting, and competitive sport that covers a broad range of activities. Of course you can go hunting with your family and shoot targets in your back yard, but did you know that archery is also an Olympic sport? It is one of the oldest sports in the world and has a history dating back thousands of years. One of the United States most recent Olympians picked up the sport of archery after she was 40 years old! And believe it or not, she had to start at the beginning and learn the same basic techniques that you will have to learn.
As with any sport, there is always a learning curve. As a beginner you have to first learn the basics: how to hold the bow, the proper stance, how to nock an arrow, how to draw, aim, release, and hit your target. Of course there is a lot to learn, but having the right kind of beginner compound bow during this learning process is crucial. 4H has put together a beginner compound bow tutorial video that will teach anyone new to archery the basics while using the Genesis Bow.
The Genesis Bow is designed for beginners and younger archers. Because of the design and set up of this bow, a beginner can go straight to shooting without a lot of complicated set up, tuning, or hassles. This takes it from being just a piece of equipment to being the perfect training partner. Who knows, maybe a future Olympian is residing in your house?
As the Official Bow for the National Archery in the Schools Program you can rest assured that this beginner compound bow has been tested for quality, durability, ease-of-use, value, and performance. Parents like it because it lasts. Teachers like it because it is easy for kids to learn to shoot accurately so that by the time they are ready for a bow with heavier poundage, they have a firm grasp of the basics.
