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. Integration came with the formation of the DCIAA. 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.

Football Divisions[edit]

To increase the parity in DCIAA football, two separate divisions based on ability were created, rather than the East-West division structure of previous years. The Stars Division is the more competitive division and those schools will be eligible for the historic Turkey Bowl game.
