Cost guide
As a guide, below you will find basic list of what you can expect to purchase for a starting archer and some very "rough" pricing. Start with good equipment sized for the archer, with correct limb weight.  Once the archer gains experience, and correct form has been achieved, they can purchase the fancier "bells & whistles" equipment if desired.

Recommend starting with a recurve.  a 3-part take down makes transportation easier.
Start with light poundage ( 14-20lbs) pull, to perfect "form".

  54" for 8-12yr;   
  62" for 11-15yr;  
  66" for intermediates,

These are important. You may break or lose your first set in your first year, so  stay with some basic aluminum arrows-Easton "Jazz" arrows are durable and economical. Arrows must match the bow's draw weight.
It is important that the archer be measured for the correct size arrow - if you get ones that are too heavy/big, it will cause nothing but frustration. Arrows are sold by the dozen. The components of an arrow are:
A: The "shaft"
B: The "nock" - the thing that holds the arrow to the string
C: The "Fletches" - (feathers/flights) - on the end of the arrow.
D: The "inserts" - these go inside the front of the shaft to screw/glue the tips into.
E: "Points" , they are the pointy things on the end that allow the arrow to stick into the target.
$4.00 - $15.00 EACH

A case that is generally attached to your belt or waist that will carry your arrows,a pencil/paper/scorecard, some back-up equipment.
