In case you missed it, we recently announced the refined designs for the multi-purpose recreational fields, phase one of the short-term elements for the redevelopment project. The recreational fields will include 2-3 multi-sport fields that include better pedestrian and waterfront access as well as supporting infrastructure that include a celebration pavilion and playground. We are projecting a groundbreaking for early fall 2018 with substantial completion in spring 2019.Read more

Over 1,200 girls from 15 states and Canada will travel to the District for an eight-bracket, three-day tournament that introduces female students to rewarding career paths in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). The Sankofa Project National Title IX Conference and Classic presented by Events DC will be held at the DC Armory from December 27-30.

Title IX demanded equal access to sports for both males and females. We are honored to help the Sankofa Project fulfill its objective of inspiring female athletes and STEAM scholars.Read more
