At the foot of the Department of Education, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Park will make its home and our Leckie campers got a sneak preview of the future park during a site visit with Clark Construction.
Family is what strikes at the heart of DC SCORES. If you ask any of the campers and counselors at the Truesdell and Leckie summer camps they’ll tell you that’s what they’ve built here at Summer SCORES.
It’s impossible to talk about important figures in the Washington, D.C. soccer community without mentioning DC SCORES Soccer Specialist, Keith Tucker.
My life changed on Aug. 31, 2009.
That’s when I stepped through the doors of 1224 M Street for my first day of work at DC SCORES. Today, nearly nine years later, is my last day in the office – our new office – as a full-time employee of the organization.
Oscar, is rising college freshman and DC SCORES alumnus. Everything that he has worked for has led him to this moment as he sits in this gymnasium with me. Nothing is ever simple and neither is his journey that has required an overwhelming amount of dedication, courage and humility to get him into college.

Audi Field is finally open and DC SCORES is part of the D.C. United gameday experience!
“Teamwork, leadership and commitment”
These are three core tenets that distinguish good athletes from extraordinary athletes. These three tenets are the core values honored by DC SCORES poet-athletes every time they get onto the field or into the classroom.
This summer at Tubman Elementary School, campers were given the opportunity to transform these values into actions on the field in a two-week long soccer intensive camp.
Even on the hottest summer days, you can find Stephanie R. and Katie B., two soon-to-be DC SCORES alumnae, on the soccer field at Tubman Elementary School. During the free, two-week soccer camp, they showed the younger campers all the right moves to make on the field.
The trend continues.
In an annual tradition, the DC SCORES Cup set a record for number of teams and funds raised to support our poet-athletes. The rain also held off despite a nebulous forecast, making for an impeccable day of soccer.
This year, DC SCORES is offering four free summer camps for rising second-graders to rising ninth-graders.
From today, June 18, until July 27, kids will participate in activities geared toward keeping their bodies and minds active during the summer break.

When you walk through the halls of Seaton Elementary School, you’ll notice that no classroom is alike. Maybe it’s the vibrant attitudes of the students sitting at their desks. Or maybe it’s the teachers eagerly standing before their students knowing that their words and actions will have a profound impact on who they will become in the next week, months, and years to come. This is the spirit of Seaton Elementary.
