Bard DC, as a District of Columbia Public School, is a member of the District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA). Students are automatically eligible to participate in any and all DCIAA sponsored sports. If there is a sport Bard DC does not offer, students can identify a DCPS school program they wish to participate on and discuss with the Dean of Students and Bard DC Athletic Director.
Opportunities afforded to our students extend beyond athletic teams and includes panel discussions, high level sporting clinics, and opportunities to participate on the DCIAA Student Leadership Council. Our athletics offerings will grow as our student population does over the next four years so we ask for patience from our student athletes during this process of building out our athletics program at Bard DC.
