COSTA MESA — Rachel Munro had a tough crowd to please on Saturday: two members of the NFL's Charger Girls and a woman who co-writes songs with Janet Jackson. Thankfully, though, the audition she attended for the Team OC Dance Company was less cutthroat than a Hollywood tryout. Each of the more than 60 girls who auditioned at the Costa Mesa studio made a team of some kind — and the stars were there to offer guidance, not to show people the door. That came as a relief for Rachel, who had barely danced at all before she ventured to the studio with two friends after a sleepover.

Amid the cold of Monday night, Mohammad Khakpour walks from a scrimmage game to an area where children are running through drills on a field behind Estancia High. He delivers orders in a calm, yet stern tone that assuredly gets across to the boys and girls of his MK Soccer Club, the Newport Beach-based club that's in its fifth year. He doesn't appear to be out of place, though his background would seem to the contrary. Khakpour was the captain of the Iranian team in the 1998 World Cup. He has been offered to coach elite level teams in Iran, but he's here offering a different concept on club soccer, while enforcing teamwork along the way. During Khakpour's MKSC tryouts this week, he's taking every player who comes out. There are no qualifications required here.
