Our Mission:

The mission of the WDCGBL is to provide a fun, supportive and safe venue for LGBT and ally athletes of all skill levels to play basketball.  We seek to provide a fun and rewarding experience for every player.  In addition to Monday and Wednesday night games, there are several social events through the season, including with TeamDC.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to use the Feedback link at the top right of the page.

Here is a short background of the league:

Here’s a short background about the league.  For many years, the “DC Sentinels” have competed in local, national and international LGBT and ally basketball competitions – including tournaments hosted by the National Gay Basketball Association (NGBA), the Gay Games, and others.  The DC Sentinels are part of TEAM DC, and we host weekly “open gym” in D.C. to bring together local LGBT and ally basketball players.  However, until this year, we have never hosted a local league, so we are excited to welcome players from around the metro area to play in the inaugural season of the WDCGBL.
