Canada SCORES brings children, families, and communities together in school environments to create a support system for learning and community engagement.
Our program focuses on the whole child and uses a unique combination of soccer, poetry, and community projects to create a singular and comprehensive program that emphasizes physical activity, health and wellness, self-expression, academic engagement, and community involvement.
Junior SCORES Programming for Grades 1-3
For our Junior SCORES Poet-Athletes, they will be playing soccer and use a unique story-based curriculum that will
motivate and inspire them to discover SCORES values, work as a team, and express their feelings and opinions in writing, all while having fun!
Canada SCORES Core Programming for Grades 4 & 5
Our Core Poet-Athletes meet 2-4 days a week for at least 90 minutes each day. They will be on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. They play soccer throughout the entire school year. In the fall semester, our classroom activities are focused on poetry, creative writing, and self-expression. In the winter and spring semesters, participants apply these creative and communicative skills to a community project they research, design, and implement.
SCORES in Action (SiA) Programming for Grades 6 & 7
Our SiA Poet-Athletes meet 1-2 days a week for at least 90 minutes each day. In addition to soccer, they will be using the "One Hen" curriculum based on an award-winning children’s book One Hen: How One Small Loan Made a Big Difference. "One Hen" challenges youth to start their own social enterprise/small business. The goals are to not only provide a safe and supportive environment, but also to equip them with the necessary skills in leadership, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy, and to give back to their local and/or global communities.
