Fun Fall Season for SCORES

Poet-athletes are learning alliteration like used above, and many other poetic devices, as well as honing their soccer skills and having fun this fall!
game time!

We're already mid-way through the season and have much to celebrate.  There is some wonderful writing happening in each site during workshops and one may witness positive sportsmanship at weekly match-ups between the schools.

The season began with Fall Frenzy on September 15th.  We're very thankful for Regis University's Women's Soccer and their coach, J.B. Belzer.  Regis hosted SCORES for the 8th year!  The weather was wonderful and there's nothing better than a Saturday of soccer to start the season.

A continued partnership with University of Denver professor, Liz Drogin has provided volunteers from a first year seminar to work regularly in three SCORES schools.  This has been fun for students on both sides!

Several poet-athletes had the opportunity to perform early this season at an event for Social Venture Partners during which Cowell and Eagleton students learned from professional spoken word artists and shared brand new poems with the crowd.

On September 29th Denver joined nine other SCORES cities in attempting to break the Guinness World Record for most people dribbling a soccer ball at one time.  Several Cowell coaches and students joined in that fun too!

All teams are preparing for the upcoming 13th Annual Poetry Slam to be held again this year at Abraham Lincoln High School in Denver.  Please join us Wednesday, November 14 at 5:30pm and witness the poet-athletes' last hurrah of the fall season.
