This prestigious recognition, named after the inspiring young athlete Carson Hatch, celebrates the determination and sportsmanship displayed by young players in the 19U division.

Carson’s Journey:

Carson Hatch was not just a sports enthusiast; he was a symbol of perseverance. His love for soccer, basketball, and football was unparalleled, but life threw him a curveball at the age of 15 when he was diagnosed with bone cancer. Despite facing this formidable opponent, Carson’s resilience prevailed, and he continued to play soccer with unmatched passion, even after the amputation of his leg below the knee.

Carson lived by the motto “Live Strong – Keep Fighting,” a testament to his unwavering determination both on and off the field. His positive attitude left an indelible mark on the community, inspiring everyone who knew his story.

The Carson Hatch AYSO Award:

To honor Carson’s memory and the values he embodied, AYSO Region 216 established the Carson Hatch Award. This annual recognition is bestowed upon a boy and girl in the 19U division who exemplify Carson’s spirit—players who give their all, never give up, and possess the heart of a true champion.
