The Dallas Independent Volleyball Association was founded in 1989. DIVA is now one of the largest gay and lesbian and straight sports organizations in the metroplex. We offer competition and volleyball skills training at six different levels. You do NOT need to be a good player to join DIVA and have fun. Many people begin in the Recreational Division to learn the game and develop their skills. No matter how good you are at volleyball, there is a division and potential friends waiting for you in DIVA. We are also a very diverse group of people. Our membership proudly boasts both men and women. Our members are gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, etc. They range in age from 18-60+. Whereas some of our members never touched a volleyball in their life before joining DIVA, others may have played in college and currently they compete on traveling teams playing tournaments throughout the US. If you are interested in playing volleyball there is a place for you in DIVA.
