Richmond Kicker's Score with Reading!
“Score with Reading !” is an incentive-based program to encourage students to embrace reading. The program can be implemented as simply as a “promise” to read three books, but teachers have the flexibility to include additional goals, such as achievement of a student’s Accelerated Reader points (where applicable) for the final grading period. A parent or teacher signs the bookmark upon completion of their student’s/child’s goals which qualifies the student for two “complimentary” youth tickets to any regular season home game. Students pick-up their tickets at the “Score with Reading !” Will Call table located next to the Main Gate and Ticket Windows. Students present their bookmark, receive their tickets and are allowed to retain their bookmark.
Great Program that offers kids free tickets to kickers games for reading:
"The Richmond Kickers play our matches at the University of Richmond Stadium (just off the Downtown Expressway.) Our games start at 7 PM with the gates opening at 6 PM. We have a full compliment of concessions and a child-friendly environment. Directions to the stadium can be found here:
Our “Score with Reading !” celebrants are invited to participate in our “Schools Out” Festival on June 6th as the Richmond Kickers take on the Harrisburg City Islanders. Of course, students who are not available on June 6th have the flexibility to attend any regular season match. Our 2009 schedule can be found here:
