​​Since it's inaugural event in 2009, the National Title IX Holiday Invitational Conference and Classic (NTHICC) has grown from 8 regional teams to 60 teams from the U.S., the Virgin Islands and Canada . . . more than 1,200 college focused players! 

Each December, the Sankofa Project puts its "Positive Peer Pressure" philosophy into action by vetting and inviting some of the best talent in the Nation (with team GPAs of 3.0 and better) to participate in NTHICC - two days of empowering information at our host hotel; and, three days of highly competitive basketball games before a wide range of NCAA, NAIA, CIAA; and, JUCO coaches; lots of Sports Media Outlets; and, lots of excited fans ... all in the 6,000 seat DC Armory! 

The Sankofa Project is a member of the Samuel Christian Services Network, a  community based nonprofit organization established in 1984 to provide programs and services to risk-exposed DC youth and their families.
