“There is no better way of life in the world than that of the Australian. 
I firmly believe this. ” ― John O'Grady

Live like an Australian for a night! And support America SCORES Seattle!


“I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!”

When I say America, you say SCORES!
America!
SCORES!

Here are some more great performances from our Spring Season Game Days. Last week Highland Park hosted Dunlap and Roxhill hosted Maple. Here are the Highland Park and Dunalp Teams sharing their cheers before the game:










 Dunlap and Highland Park showed great spirit and sportsmanship during their game on Friday!



Coach Trevor honors examples of Teamwork, Commitment, and Leadership at the weekly Gold Card Ceremony! Team ritual creates strong culture! 

A strong culture that enables leaders like, Poet-Athlete Marquise,
 to take a moment to remind us what a SCORES Game is all about!
