College Kicks is an annual SCORES event where all of our third, fourth, and fifth graders don't go to their normal practices after school, rather they are bused to Seattle University for an afternoon filled with college life. The poet-athletes get to run through soccer drills with a Seattle U soccer team, walk around the campus with a Seattle U student tour guide and then participate in a Q & A session with current students. They'll be asking questions about how to pay for college, what it's like to be a student and, this from last year, "do you have a bed time?" It's an eye-opening experience for all the students.
Who: Seattle U student volunteers, our poet-athletes and coaches, and SCORES staff and board
