The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize individuals and teams that have demonstrated exceptional athletic success during their enrollment at, or service to, a District of Columbia public, public charter, or private school. The Hall of Fame also looks to honor individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to District secondary athletic programs and the overall District secondary athletic community.
2017 was the inaugural year for the DCSAA High School Athletics Hall of Fame and we are happy to be searching for members of our third class! Be sure to participate in our nomination process to honor the amazing contributions of our District athletes, coaches, and community members.
