Sparking engaged learning through sport & Wordplay
SCORES programming is designed to allow every child to feel safe, supported, challenged, and open to the thrills of creative and physical expression within an engaged community.
Partnership Underscores Everything
SCORES works in deep collaboration with schools and “lead agency” partners to create each school's SCORES program. It's a team approach from the very start. With SCORES guidance, schools assemble teaching teams of writing coaches and soccer coaches. Students take part in all components of the program - writing, soccer, service learning - as part of a SCORES team.
