PureGame, in partnership with Orange County Soccer Club (OCSC), Unite Health Share Ministries (UHSM) and the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, handed down crucial and necessary life lessons to Orange County youth participating in the Athletic Enrichment Camps, part of the Gang Reduction Intervention Partnership (GRIP).

The eighth annual camp for PureGame was once again held virtually. In order to make a strong impact in the lives of the participating students, PureGame relied on significant speakers to share their life experiences and lessons that will help students with their decision-making now and in the near future.

This year’s speakers included Los Angeles Times Editor Eduard Cauich, US Soccer Media & Broadcast Operations Manager Ilyanna Gutierrez, and PureGame’s own, two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Joy Fawcett. Additionally, students were presented with pre-recorded videos from OCSC players like goalkeeper Abraham Romero, defenders Blake Malone and Michael Orozco, as well as Assistant Coach Richard Chaplow and the President of Business Operations Jeff Garner, sharing experiences of their own.

PureGame and OCSC are now releasing these videos to the public and are now available in our YouTube Channel for educational purposes.
