For over 20 years, Boston Scores has delivered its unique blend of team-based Soccer, Poetry and Service Learning programs to students in the Boston Public Schools.
In the wake of school closures in the spring of 2020, Scores has adapted its Power of Poetry, Soccer For Success and One Hen Social Entrepreneurship curricula into a series of weekly video projects and challenges available to any student or educator.
We encourage you to create & express, to move and play, to connect and help with us.

Week of June 1 – June 5: We’ve arrived at Week 10 and the final lesson of our Spring 2020 at-home Service Learning Season! We started way back in Week 1 by looking at what it means to Give Back. Since then, we’ve thought about causes important to our community back and how we can address those challenges through social entrepreneurship. Now we come full circle and return to the idea of Giving Back – this time deciding on the charitable organizations that can benefit from the profits of our entrepreneurial activity.
Week of June 1 – June 5: This week we wrap up the 10th and final session of our Spring 2020 virtual Power of Poetry season. We finish the season strong with our #athomepoetrychallenge – a chance for you to compose a 5-part poem about your community and share it with SCORES students all across North America!
Week of June 1 – June 5: After 10 weeks, it’s our final at-home soccer practice of the Spring 2020 season! Coach Ethan and Coach Ever sign off (for now) with a new footwork drill that puts it all together, using all of the different parts of the foot we’ve worked on this spring to maneuver the ball in multiple directions.
Week of May 25 – May 29: We’ve worked on all sorts of footwork and ball control basics this spring. Now, with only two weeks left in our At-Home Soccer season, Coach Ethan and Coach Ever show you how to step up your ball control mastery with a more intricate and advanced soccer drill you can practice right in your own home.
Week of May 25 – May 29: This week at Boston Scores, Service Learning Coaches Gaby & Nelson talk about how to develop a Growth Mindset, a kind of super skill that helps young students and athletes appreciate the value of effort, practice and setbacks.
