Training, clinics, leagues, hunts and road trips, just to name a few things we do throughout the year. Our mission is to Help, Teach, and Support women in the outdoors, and we have met that goal for 15 years.
Guns, ammo and all equipment are provided at all DIVA clinics, so you do not have to own a gun or bring one.
Not always. Many of the participants at the leagues will let you borrow a gun, or most ranges have guns to rent. Most importantly, we encourage every woman to try before you buy. Talk with other members of the league and see if you can test drive theirs. The gun you buy needs to fit YOU and you need to be happy with it for the purpose for which it is intended. You may decide to buy a target pistol if you mostly participate in leagues, or you may prefer to buy one to conceal and use it during leagues to get practice. Talk it over with others before you make that first purchase.
Some bow shops have bows you can use, however it is difficult to borrow another person’s as bows are fitted to the user. Talk it over with your league chair or the range you are shooting before you sign up for league.
No, however we do provide discounts to area ranges where the classes are held. We encourage all women to get additional training, including CHL classes, but that is not our mission. Our goal is to introduce women to the outdoors and shooting sports, and provide clinics and events to help improve your skills. We coordinate additional training through professional instructors throughout the year and announce them by email, this website and on Facebook.
On average our membership age range is between 35 and 55 years old. However we have many junior, student and retired ladies among our membership. Ladies in the 20 to 30 year old range are on the increase each year, with a rise over the past year nearly doubling that of previous years.
Youth members are between the ages of 9 and 17.
No. We have one annual conference per year, and each area liaison announces meetings or get togethers specifically for her area.
No. DIVA WOW recognizes and supports many programs such as the NRA and we encourage you to join, but it is not a requirement to be a DIVA.
DIVA WOW has several levels of membership available. For the girls, we have junior or student memberships, and for those over 18 we have annual or life memberships. Membership to DIVA WOW provides you with a ton of benefits. First, being part of the nation’s first and largest all-women’s shooting and outdoors organization! As part of your yearly membership receive member-only discounts on clinics/leagues/events, discounts on DIVA merchandise, discounts from our sponsors and vendors and many opportunities for certified training and leadership opportunities. By joining, you’ll receive news and information first about our events and leagues, receive member only discounts via our sponsors and supporters, and have access to a nationwide network of DIVA sisterhood!

Volunteering is easy! Just speak up!
If you want to help at a particular event/clinic, contact the chairwoman for that event and let her know you want to help. You can also contact Barbara Parks, Clinic Director, and she can point you in the right direction to help with an event.
Every league needs Range Safety Officers, mentors, instructors, activity coordinators, and general help. Contact the League Chair for your area and let her know you want to help. She’ll be glad you did!
DIVA WOW is an all volunteer organization and we depend on women like you to use your expertise, experience, and knowledge to help our organization run and grow. Whatever your skills, we can use them. Contact Judy Rhodes to see how and where you can help or if you have an idea to help us improve a process, let us know. We appreciate great members like you!
Starting a New Area
We are always looking for driven individuals who want to lead. Starting a new DIVA area is super easy, it just takes you plus two. We have an entire page dedicated to how you can begin setting a new area up, and you can contact Mardi Campbell, Liaison Director, for additional help and support.
For questions regarding membership, communications, leagues or more, see our Leadership page to find a volunteer who can help with your particular question.
Log in to the website, select Membership Area, and then Roster. Every active DIVA is included in the DIVA Roster. At no time are you permitted to contact DIVA members for advertising or unsolicited business offers.
While we do have many exceptional shooters throughout our membership, not all members are advanced shooters. Practice makes perfect!
Yes. All members are required to hold a Texas (or your state) Hunter Safety Certificate to go on any hunt with the DIVAs.
For volunteers, that would be the Red DIVA logowear t-shirt. Other occasions, the TEAM DIVA custom shooting shirt is our go to choice. Team DIVA shooting shirts are ordered once a year. Be on the look out for the next purchase opportunity.
