Volunteer Awards

2019-2020 Volunteer Awards


Each year the Claremont AYSO Board recognizes important volunteers and the roles they have played in making our organization successful. 

GU10 - CARR AWARD


The Carr Award is an award given every Fall to a U10 Girl's Coach in memory of an AYSO Volunteer named William Curtis "Curt" Carr. Born on April 1, 1950, in Illinois, Curt Carr was a long time resident of Claremont with his wife Linda and his two daughters, Lindsey and Ashley.

Curt coached both his daughters in AYSO and continued serving on the Board (Fields and Maintenance) long after his children had left AYSO. He was enthusiastic and dedicated to Claremont AYSO, and an advocate of all the things we stand for. As a coach he embodied and stressed "Everyone Plays, Positive Coaching, and Good Sportsmanship." He taught the kids to have fun while learning the game of soccer. As a Board member he was well liked and served as a mentor for many.

In December of 1998, Curt lost his fight to cancer at the age of 48. The Board decided to give an award in his memory to a coach in Girls Under 10. The award goes–by vote of fellow girls' U10 coaches–to the coach who typifies the spirit and enthusiasm Curt brought to Claremont AYSO.

BU10 MAYLATH AWARD

The Maylath Award is an annual award given to a Boys U10 Coach and is presented at the end of the fall season each year in memory of an AYSO Volunteer named Edward "Ed" Dean Maylath.

Born in August 17, 1938 in Illinois, Ed Maylath came to California in 1949, moving to Claremont in 1968 with his wife, Darlene, and sons, Kevin and Jeffery. Ed was an enthusiastic, well-liked person. He was popular with his fellow coaches.

An assistant manager at Security Pacific Bank, Ed was also studying law. In 1970, during his first season as coach of his son's team, he died as a result of injuries from an automobile accident. He was 32. Subsequently, the coaches of the division decided to inaugurate an award in memory of Ed Maylath. The award then goes (by vote of fellow coaches in that division each year) to the person who typifies the spirit and enthusiasm, which Ed Maylath brought to the Claremont AYSO program.

BASKETT AWARD

The Baskett Award is Claremont Region 3's outstanding service award, presented annually.

Born March 27, 1927, in Kansas, William R. "Bill" Baskett came to California as a boy. He resided in Claremont with his wife, Constance, and three children, Sally, Paul, and Robert. Bill was among the first division commissioners in Claremont AYSO, having been Commissioner of Division 1 Boys in 1974-75. At this time there were three divisions in AYSO: ages 13-15, Division 1; ages 10-12, Division 2; ages 7-9, Division 3.

Bill also coached his sons Paul and Robert in AYSO. Bill stressed the concept that "Everyone Plays!" He also believed that the pressure to "win, win, win" had no place in the AYSO program. He placed tremendous value in fair play and equal opportunity for all players, regardless of their experience or ability. 

In 1975, Bill was traveling on business for General Dynamics when his Ontario-to-Los Angeles Commuter plane collided with a private plane and Bill was killed. He was 47. The Claremont AYSO Board established this Memorial Award in Bill's name to recognize individuals who have contributed greatly to Claremont AYSO.
