Our Programs

Program Overview

Canada SCORES uses a unique combination of soccer, poetry, and community projects to create a singular comprehensive program that emphasizes physical activity, health and wellness, self-expression, academic engagement, and community involvement. Our year-round programming inspires youth to lead healthy lives and gain the confidence to make change in their communities.

Children participate in our SCORES programming twice per week after school with one day allocated to classroom
work focusing on literacy, poetry, and community service, while the other day is dedicated to practicing and playing soccer. Registration for Canada SCORES occurs by referral through individual schools. If you’re interested in your child joining Canada SCORES, please inquire with your child’s school to see if our programming is a match for your family.

Our Junior SCORES Poet-Athletes, play soccer and use a unique story-based curriculum that will motivate and inspire them to discover our SCORES values.

SCORES Core Programming for Grades 4 & 5

Our Core Poet-Athletes meet 2 days per week for 90 minutes each day throughout the entire school year. They spend their time on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. In the fall semester, our classroom activities are focused on poetry, creative writing, and self-expression while 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 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. This curriculum challenges youth to start their own social enterprise/small business. The goal is to not only provide a safe and supportive environment, but also to equip them with the necessary skills in leadership, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and to give back to their local and/or global communities.

SCORES at Home

SCORES at Home was a program that was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Activities for this program were created with SCORES participants in mind, but were appropriate for all ages, so that family and friends of our poet-athletes could get involved. Together during the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to  stay involved as a community and everyone showed great resilience. As a legacy of what we were able to accomplish together as a community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have kept our SCORES at Home page, and to reflect on this program, please click the button below...
