Tony    Everett    is    the    Founder    and    Chief    Play    Maker    of    Pure    Game,    a    nonprofit    that    uses    soccer    to    engage    over    5000    at-risk    youth    per    year    in    the    inner    city    areas    of    Orange    County.    Growing    up    in    England,    Tony    acquired    a    passion    for    soccer.    His    childhood    team    experience    was    focused    on    fun,    with    minimal    structure    and    adult    intervention.    Tony    recalls    it    as,    “sheer    joy”.    This    liberating    atmosphere    resulted    in    a    relationship    with    soccer    and    teammates    that    taught    him    transferable    skills    and    values    and    helped    him    establish    friends    for    life.        

Tony    now    leads    a    team    of    like-minded    individuals    who    have    a    passion    to    create    change    in    the    lives    of    children.    Pure    Game    couples    a    cooperative    form    of    soccer    with    positive    character    development    in    an    overall    attempt    to    influence    the    development    of    its    participants'    physical,    mental,    emotional,    and    social    well-being.    The    simple,    yet    effective    system    allows    children    to    understand    who    they    through    a    series    of    experiential    learning    moments    that    help    kids    explore    their    gifts    and    talents.    For    the    child,    this    creates    a    better    understanding    of    their    passion    and    purpose    in    life.
