America SCORES Atlanta, a non-profit after-school program that uses soccer, poetry and community service to address some of the core problems of today’s youth, is holding a charity soccer tournament tomorrow.
The 5th annual co-ed tourney, the America SCORES Cup Atlanta, brings together 12 teams representing corporations, churches and professional service firms for a day of friendly competition. Kick-off is at 9 a.m. at the Georgia Soccer Park in East Point.
Teams participating include Alston & Bird, Frazier Deeter, King & Spalding, Earthlink, Concessions International and North Avenue Presbyterian Church.
“Without their involvement in SCORES Cup, America SCORES wouldn’t be able to accomplish its goal of working to improve the lives of inner-city youth in Atlanta,” said Anthony Joseph, board chairman for America SCORES Atlanta.
America SCORES Atlanta runs after-school programs in urban neighborhoods. Programs focus on soccer, creative writing and service-learning as a way of teamwork.
