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.
For any award winner that wants to share a special thanks or sportsmanship related story to the Hamilton Family, please email:
Spring 2012 Hamilton Nomination Information:
We hope you and your teams have had a great spring season. It’s time, once again, for the Hamilton Sportsmanship Award. Please take a moment and nominate one player from your team as the Hamilton representative for the Spring of 2012.
Look over your roster and ask yourself which player....
- shows respect to you, the ref and fellow teammates
- consistently has a good attitude, win or lose
- exemplifies sportsmanship
- exhibits integrity
- promotes team unity
- is a good example to other players
This award may or may not go to your most skilled player. We're awarding good character, not necessarily great athletic ability.
Thanks so much for replying to ** email@example.com ** with the name of the team and winner along with an email address of either the player or parent.
