Overview


Mission Statement

Positive Youth Development using sport for positive youth engagement.

Background Statement

Growing up in England, Tony Everett, the founder of Pure Game acquired a passion for soccer. His childhood team experience was focused on fun, with minimal structure and adult intervention. This liberating atmosphere resulted in a relationship with soccer and teammates that taught him transferable skills and values and helped establish friends for life.
Upon arriving in the U.S. in 2000, he found a dramatically different approach to youth soccer. The rigid structure and drills so common in the States don’t inspire spontaneous, creative play or coaching. The intense schedules and performance-driven atmosphere hinder the lessons and relationships kids should take away from the game.
In 2004, he started attending Saddleback Church in Orange County. He was lucky enough to take a couple of short-term mission trips to Nigeria, Brazil, and Rwanda. During these trips, soccer was the focal point of his activities with youth, and despite the children’s often-difficult background, this wonderful game brought joy and happiness. Seeing how children were so open to learning about life while playing soccer really made an impact on Tony, but it was back in California when he really understood where this was all going.
In January 2009, Pure Game was birthed. Tony began his first Pure Game program at Boys & Girls Club in Aliso Viejo. While holding a full time job, Tony started Pure Game on a shoestring budget and a passion to bring fun back to the game of soccer and the kids who play it.
In March of 2012, with the support of the Pure Game board and individual donors, Tony was able to quit his job and become the first paid full-time employee, field champion and mentor of Pure Game.
Since then, Pure Game has been growing rapidly and has achieved many great successes.

Impact Statement

Pure Game has formed successful partnerships with B&G Clubs in Santa Ana, Stanton, Anaheim, and Aliso Viejo, GRIP (Gang Reduction Intervention Partnership), and local schools. It is through these partnerships that we are able to provide the children with our positive message of hope and transformation. Pure Game works with approximately 800 children a week.
For the 2018-19 school year alone, Pure Game is proud to be actively running in 70+ different schools, working with thousands of youth through our sport based youth development programs.
Our vision
Creating a world of inspiring influencers who will lead future generations by redefining what's possible.
Our ultimate goal is to teach vulnerable children to learn and grow not just through their successes, but through their failures as well. Learning these skills now helps youth stay on the right path, gain self-confidence, develop leadership skills, and lead healthy lifestyles. Our motto, “Life, played at full potential,” reflects the belief that every child deserves a champion that will promote this life-changing message of growth and empowerment.
Our main short-term goal is to increase the field programs we run, giving us the ability to serve more children. By increasing our partnership base we will be able to achieve this, while at the same time providing our services to a greater geographical area.

Needs Statement

We ask the partnering schools to contribute $4080, unfortunately with budget cuts many schools are unable to raise even this small amount of money. Some of this cost is covered by other donated sources and grants, but as we grow there is growing shortfall. 
We also need consistent and reliable volunteers. To create the level of trust needed to reach the children in a way that is transformative and lasting, the champions need to be on the field on a regular basis. When committing to the program, a volunteer must understand they need to be on the field for the entire 10-week program. This level of consistency demonstrates to the child they matter and they have worth.
There is also a need for back office volunteers. We are looking for people who are skilled in the following areas, database management, social media, financial operations, Salesforce development, graphic design, and program management.

Programs


In-School Program

We run a series of 8-week programs for elementary, middle, and high schools. Operating the Pure Game cooperative form soccer during recess or lunch breaks allows children of all abilities and backgrounds an opportunity to be active. At the same time the are learning about positive character traits, like respect & responsibility. We demonstrate what these traits look like on the soccer field, and then we teach what it means to embody these in their classroom, home, and neighborhoods.
Budget  $1,600.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Citizenship
Population Served At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  Children will be engaged in school, making good choices at home, and being positive contributors in their communities.
Program Long-Term Success  Pure Game is working to evolve a program that encourages children to believe in themselves, make a difference, lead a positive life, and contribute to their communities by being a leader and mentor from within. We envision Pure Game as a community program that is managed and run by local community leaders and mentors (Field Champions) promoting a self-sustaining community program that gives unto itself.
Program Success Monitored By  Pure Game works closely with the schools we work with, and so will monitor attendance, grade improvement, and general attitude. We also administer out own pre and post test to better understand the child's understanding and implementation of the character education material.
Examples of Program Success 
Reports from principles and teachers are positive, they regularly inform us how the children in our program are improving their grades and becoming more involved in the classrooms.
The pre and post tests are producing regular percentage increases in the child's understanding of the material. In the area of respect the increase is consistently 20-30% over a 10-week program. 

After-school program

We run a series of 10-week programs for organization looking to serve the same underserved population as we are. Operating the Pure Game cooperative form soccer for these partners allow children of all abilities and backgrounds an opportunity to be active. At the same time they are learning about positive character traits, like respect & responsibility. We demonstrate what these traits look like on the soccer field, and then we teach what it means to embody these in their classroom, home, and neighborhoods.
