Feb. 19 Futsal tournament A Chance for High School Teams To Give Back

On Feb. 19, local nonprofit DC SCORES is hosting the first-ever Soccer & Service Cup -- a Futsal tournament that also involves giving back.

The 5v5 tournament is for high school boys and girls in the greater DC area. It will be held at St. Albans School – with the girls tournament beginning at 11am followed by the boys in the afternoon.

Registration for a team is $600, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting DC SCORES’ after-school program that serves 800 students at 25 schools in six of the District's eight wards. DC SCORES combines soccer, poetry and service-learning to inspire kids to be physically fit, engaged in school, and active in their communities.

Aligning with the program's commitment to service, each tournament participant is expected to commit to at least two hours of volunteering for DC SCORES. The opportunities are plentiful, especially for soccer fans – ref a couple elementary school games; help at the organization's year-end soccer tournament; assist a short-handed coach with practice one afternoon.

To become a part of this new event, sign up your school now!
