Scholarship program for Carson City AYSO Region 140 fully funded through 2022


AYSO Carson City, which has served more than 25,000 children since 1976, is able to cover the cost of partial and full scholarships thanks to a grant provided by Carson Tahoe Health’s (CTH) Community Partnership Fund and the determination of one CTH employee. AYSO, a non-profit organization, will use the funds to cover registration fees for families who demonstrate need to the organization.

“As an all-volunteer organization, we work diligently to deliver a great soccer learning experience for every child we work with,” said Jon Hager, Commissioner for Carson City AYSO Region 140. “Thanks to the support of the CTH Community Partnership Fund, we are able to greatly reduce registration fees for participants in need and, in some cases, cover the registration fees entirely. This will allow us to serve even more children and introduce soccer to their lives.”

A 501 (c)(3) private, not-for-profit healthcare system, Carson Tahoe Health has been serving the community since 1949. In 2019, the CTH Community Partnership Fund was established to provide funding and assistance to improve the health and well-being of the underserved and vulnerable in the area. The fund seeks to promote health equity, ensuring that everyone has the same opportunity to live a healthy life, regardless of their socio-economic situation.  

“I applied to the Carson Tahoe Health Community Partnership Fund to help support my daughter’s competitive traveling soccer team, which I help coach,” said Luis Rodriguez, Lead MRI Technologist at Carson Tahoe Health. “Rather than sponsor one team, Carson Tahoe worked with AYSO to fund its entire scholarship program for the next two years. This month is my 15th year anniversary working for Carson Tahoe and I could not be prouder to work for an organization that supports my community.”
