Firebirds Forever is the booster club for University of the District of Columbia athletics. Firebirds Forever pays tribute to all who have come before us and all those who now work for the future success of athletics at the University of the District of Columbia. The Athletic Department’s goal is to make sure that each student- athlete encounters a positive academic and athletic experience while at the University of the District of Columbia – thus staying a Firebird Forever! The organization is dedicated to the support of the Firebirds and our athletic programs.

We welcome Alumni, Family and Friends of the University of the District of Columbia to join Firebirds Forever!

The University of the District of Columbia community is exceptionally proud of our student-athletes for their hard work and dedication in the classroom, in the community, and in competition. They represent the University well every day, and they have garnered significant conference, regional, and national accolades for their effort and determination. In our inaugural season in the East Coast Conference, we experienced historic success with four of our ten teams advancing to the NCAA Tournament (Men's and Women's Basketball and Men's and Women's Tennis), and two of our Men's Cross Country student-athletes competed in the NCAA's as well on an individual basis. Women's Tennis won our first ever conference championship under East Coast Conference Women's Tennis Coach of the Year, T. "Dickie" Mahaffey. In addition, we garnered 13 all-conference selections, eight all-east region selections, and over 20% of our student-athletes attained the dean's list.

As a supporter of the University of the District of Columbia athletics, you play an integral role in the educational and athletic experience of our student-athletes.  We ask you to join Firebirds Forever and help our student-athletes as they pursue another banner year. Through your financial support, you will help sustain and enhance the experience for our Firebird student-athletes. The Firebird is rising in the nation's capital, and we hope you will join us for the ride!

Funds secured through Firebirds Forever will be directly allocated to the needs of the student-athletes and the Athletic Department as we expand, grow, and look to win championships in our new home, the East Coast Conference.  Your support will directly assist our student-athletes in their training and preparation for future conference titles and NCAA tournament appearances.
