Orange County GRIP three-day soccer camp helps at-risk youth choose right over wrong
By Jessica Peralta
Even as the fourth- through eighth-graders enthusiastically asked questions of Orange County Blues FC‘s soccer team members, it was clear what the Fullerton and Buena Park students actually wanted to do: kick the ball past the players at the net.
They got their chance at the end of the team’s presentation and enjoyed kicking at their soccer role models.
“They really get into it,” said Shannon Back, a deputy district attorney with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office assigned to the Orange County Gang Reduction Intervention Partnership (OC GRIP) unit, as she watched the children during GRIP’s soccer camp hosted at Cal State Fullerton March 28-30.
