Our roots go back to 1984, when several of the current members formed a team to represent Washington, D.C. in national and international gay basketball tournaments.

Results Gym (Doug Jeffries) sponsored one of the first teams. There were several people who were responsible for holding open gyms through the years that kept basketball alive in DC.

These people were Derrick Price, Joe Chapin and Tim Francis. The group was reorganized with old and new people by Tim Francis in 2007.

We competed as a team for the first time after the revival in the Amsterdam Pride 2007 Basketball Tourney. The DC Sentinels organization was born in 2008 when a board was formed and new Bi laws were written.
