America Scores is a nationwide organization that was formed to, as its website explains, “partners with urban schools to provide a high quality, team-based program that integrates soccer, poetry and service-learning.”

Thanks to America Scores, SF Parks And Rec Department, Spritz Marketing, Pretzel Crisps, Senda Athletics, and everyone who participated. It was a blast. More later.
