This fall SCORES season, I had the pleasure of following the Brightwood Panthers on their poetry journey. All of these poet-athletes are full of bright ideas and storytelling abilities – and it showed in their Poetry Slam performance.
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.
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been following the Brightwood Panthers and going to their poetry practice sessions. With the help of their poetry coaches, Mrs. Andrews, and Ms. Serrano, the kids have been able to grow and develop their ideas into great poems and performances for the annual DC SCORES Poetry Slam.
On Saturday, October 26, 2019, DC SCORES celebrated its 22nd annual Fall Frenzy, presented by EagleBank. Over 1,000 elementary school poet-athletes from over 30 different schools arrived bright and early for a fun-filled day of soccer, activity booths, and great music.
Once the school bell rings this afternoon signifying the end of the school day, thousands of kids in the District will get ready for the start of another Fall SCORES season.
As the summer is slowly coming to an end and we get closer to the start of another Fall SCORES season (starting September 9), we thought it would be a good idea to look back on the incredible summer SCORES season we had!

The setting was perfect. There was no chance of rain this year so the fields at the Maryland SoccerPlex were ready for the action. Everything was set-up to receive over 40 teams for the 17th Annual DC SCORES Cup to benefit DC SCORES.

The spring SCORES season consists of 12-weeks of free afterschool programming for DC SCORES poet-athletes. Besides soccer practices and weekly games, each team spends time in the classroom to identify an issue in their local community and then address it with a service-learning project.

Audi Field opened its gates once more for an evening celebration like no other to benefit DC SCORES.
One Night One Goal came back for the second time since October 2018 with even more surprises and exclusive experiences for its attendees. Throughout the night guests had the opportunity to see Audi Field like they never have before as they mingled with the stars from D.C. United and the Washington Spirit.
