More high school students are playing more sports in the District, even as sports participation rates stagnate elsewhere in much of the region and nationwide.

Between the 2013-2014 and 2018-2019 school years, the number of high school sports participants in D.C. rose from 10,168 to 14,580 — a spike of 43%.
