In so many parts of the world, soccer is regarded as the beautiful game.
Adam Muchnick has always wanted that description to be true in the United States. The Newport Beach resident has wanted to increase the love of soccer locally. For the past year, he had been working to create a beautiful camp.
Last week, the work paid off as Adam Muchnick teamed up with English Premier League player Shaun Wright-Phillips (Queens Park Rangers) for their International Soccer Camp at Harbor Day School.
Everything seemed to fall into place as 200 campers gained the instruction from SWP and other English Premier League players like Victor Anichebe (Everton), Zat Knight (Bolton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea) and Steven Ireland (Aston Villa).
"We wanted to do something to give back to the kids and to do something for soccer in the USA," Muchnick said. "The feedback was extremely positive. A lot of the campers' parents said it changed their kids' lives and gave them a new passion for soccer. I wanted to show them my personal love for the game and how much it is loved around the world."
