Why should women join a local shooting league?
- There is usually a fee to join the league, and if we are going to pay for something, we usually are more likely to do it.
- There is accountability from having a certain day and time to be at the range.
- It’s an easy way to find other women who like to shoot and who might join you at other times.
- You can get help with issues you are having, or give help to someone who is just starting out.
I’ve been to the range many times lately, where I’ve seen a woman shooting with a few men and have approached her to talk about our women’s events. Every time, she has been thrilled to find out there are other ladies who like to shoot and fun events to join in on.
So check with your local range to see if there are women’s leagues already there, but if not, think about starting one yourself. There are many leagues around that have “franchised” to areas outside their own and will be more than happy to help you get started. Let me know if you need some suggestions.
And if you have been a member of a league, please leave a comment and let us know why you joined and what you got out of it.
See you at the range!
