PLEASE NOTE THAT BOSTON SCORES IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THEIR 126TH BOSTON MARATHON TEAM.
Boston Scores helps urban youth build essential life skills and character through soccer and team-based enrichment programs. Join the Scores' Boston Marathon Team to help provide Boston students with the opportunity to join their first team, play in their first game, and become leaders in their communities!
Our programs were born out of the desire to close the opportunity gap for students in inner-city Boston, with a specific focus on soccer and out-of-school time enrichment activities. While soccer is generally played across economic classes internationally, the sport is dominated by a "pay to play" model in the United States, requiring considerable financial contributions to cover equipment costs, travel expenses, club fees, and much more. Play equity gaps lead to health equity gaps and systemic barriers to joining high-quality teams and leagues that deprive our society of a vast resource of youth talent.
At Boston Scores, students can join a free soccer team at their school. After their soccer practices, students move with their teammates from the field to the classroom, where they engage in hands-on curricula that connect to their real-world experiences. They emerge empowered to make positive changes in their lives and in their communities.
