As another successful Junior SCORES (Kindergarten through 2nd grade) winter season comes to a close, the highly anticipated and fiercely competitive game days are fast approaching. These pint size poet-athletes have been learning the rules of the beautiful game while developing their soccer fundamentals and creative writing skills since mid January. Focusing on teamwork, commitment and leadership the Junior SCORES coaches have been preparing their teams for this one, epic season finale – Game Day! Reserve your front-row seat and assist at a game day.

The stage has been set for the next Chicharito to emerge. What school will form the next SCORES dynasty? Endless possibility and everything to play for as the fledglings look to take flight; many of the tots will be suiting up in their first America SCORES jersey – set to accompany them through elementary and middle school, bringing fond memories, experiences and grass stains with them. We know the jersey size will change with time, but are optimistic the early patterns of exercise, character development and excitement attached to reading and writing established through the tots programming will sustain. As we like to say: from strong roots, greatness grows.
