Classes & Activities

Below are descriptions of WPA’s regularly scheduled classes and activities. For special events and competitions, please check the Calendar.

If you are going to participate for the first time, please download and complete the Woodley Park Archers Class Waiver. Please bring your waiver to your first class. Please note that printing your waiver does not guarantee you a spot in the Safety Class; class is on a first-come first-serve basis upon arrival at class. Each and every participant of our instructional/recreational program must complete this registration and release, for himself/herself and for each child participation in the activity. WPA strives to provide a valuable community service and apologizes for any inconvenience.
