2019 was an exciting year for DC SCORES, filled with an abundance of amazing moments and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for our poet-athletes.

For over 3,000 kids at 70 sites throughout the District, 2019 was jam-packed with special moments on the field, in classrooms, and throughout the city as well. As we get ready to celebrate the new year, we thought it was necessary to look back on some of the most memorable moments of 2019 and recognize those that helped us get to this point in celebrating 25 years of DC SCORES.

One of the highlights of the Fall SCORES season is Capital Cup, the culminating championship games of the DC SCORES Middle School soccer leagues. This season, DC SCORES partnered with the Public Charter School Athletic Association (PCSAA) to expand the middle school soccer leagues to 42 participating teams from 28 DC Public and Public Charter schools.

It only takes one individual can make an impact, and together, the lives of thousands of kids in the District can change for the better.

This Giving Tuesday (December 3), your support can go a long way to help kids reach their full potential. A donation to DC SCORES, no matter the amount, will help continue offering kids the opportunity to succeed on the playing field, in the classroom, and in life.
