The tenth annual Title IX Holiday Invitational Conference and Classic returns to the DC Armory from December 27-29. This top national tournament features over 1,200 female basketball players on more than 74 teams from 24 states and Canada, playing in nine brackets on five courts. NCAA, CIAA and NJCAA eligible players travel right here to DC to play before a wide range of coaches and scouts seeking to award athletic scholarships to female student athletes -- scholarships made possible because of the passage of Title IX.
The event also features an empowering conference with informative workshops, where they learn about the passage of Title IX, are encourages to self-advocate, and become better prepared for post-secondary success. This year’s speakers will include Olympic champion and Title IX expert Nancy Hoggshead-Makar, NJCAA Division-I Champion maker and author Franqua “Q” Bedell, and Olympic champion/former WNBA player Lisa Willis.
