The Hamilton Sportsmanship Award is named after Dr. Pat B. Hamilton who helped establish youth soccer in Raleigh and the state of North Carolina. He played a critical role in developing CASL. This award is given out twice a year, after the fall and spring seasons have ended. Every CASL team that was active during the season has the opportunity to select one player from their team for the Sportsmanship Award.
This award is open to all CASL playing divisions: Recreational, Challenge, YTS, and Classic. The selected player should personify the values Dr. Hamilton lived by including integrity, fairness, respect for others and a love of the game.
Coaches have been asked to select a Sportsmanship Award winner from their team. We encourage teams U12-U19 to have the team members vote on which player should win the Sportsmanship Award. The Hamilton Sportsmanship Award is a prestigious award and we at CASL congratulate all the recipients.
2013-2014 Hamilton Sportsmanship Award Info:
The Hamilton Sportsmanship Award event for the 2013-2014 season is set for Saturday, May 17th at the Carolina RailHawks game. All Hamilton Sportsmanship Award Winners, along with friends and family, are invited to see the RailHawks take on the Atlanta Silverbacks. Be sure to wear your CASL training shirt or jersey.
CASL will be set up just outside the box office from 5:30-7PM handing out awards. Winners will receive their award, a free ticket to the game along with a poster that includes all the 2013-2014 winners’ names.
To reserve tickets ahead of time (and to RSVP for your child) you may call the RailHawks box office 919-459-8144 and mention the award. They will check you off the list for one free ticket and include the rest of your seats in the same section as the winners.
If you can’t confirm plans until the day of the game, no problem. You will have the convenient option of purchasing tickets right at the CASL Tent… no waiting in line at the box office.
Every Hamilton Award winner will get to walk around the field at halftime while an announcement is made about their accomplishment. THE KIDS LOVE IT! We will provide more info on when/where to meet prior to the halftime parade when we see you at the tent.
We really hope you are able to make the game...BRING THE WHOLE TEAM/FAMILY TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR THESE WONDERFUL YOUNG ATHLETES!!
