The District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA) is the public high school athletic league in Washington, D.C. The league was founded in 1958. The original high school conference for D.C. schools was the Inter-High School Athletic Association, formed around 1896. That organization was segregated, and black schools in the District formed their own athletic association. The Inter-High League was renamed the DCIAA in 1989 to bring the District of Columbia in line with other states with interscholastic athletic programs. In 2011 Stephanie Evans took over as Athletic Director and has turned what was once a struggling high school sports organization into a success story.

The DCIAA sponsors varsity championships in basketball, baseball, Bowling cross country, football, Flag football -girls, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, skiing, and track and field.

Stars Division

  • Anacostia
  • Ballou
  • Dunbar
  • Eastern
  • H.D. Woodson
  • Wilson

Stripes Division

  • 2016-2017 Eastern moved up to the Stars Division while Coolidge goes to Stripes Division.

Football Championships[edit]

By far the biggest and most-celebrated DCIAA sport, the football champion is decided in the annual Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving Day. Here is the history of the DCIAA football champions.
