Nick Hardgrove Scholarship Foundation

Nick Hardgrove was a fantastic AYSO and Northwind soccer coach and volunteer, who had a tremendous impact on hundreds of boys and girls before he passed away in the Fall of 2014. For Nick, it was all about the kids. Always. His signature coaching style focused on the fun of the game and giving each kid confidence to succeed. He was passionate about sports, and loved to be on the pitch with the kids. Nick was generous with his time and talent, and he loved this Club. 

It is in this spirit that the Nick Hardgrove Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established. The fund awards financial scholarships to deserving players who would otherwise not have the ability to participate in the Northwind travel soccer program.

Please help us honor Nick’s legacy by donating to the the Nick Hardgrove Memorial Scholarship Fund. A donation can be made when registering a player at or by check made out to AYSO Region 418 and mailed to AYSO Region 418, Attn: Treasurer, 4507 N. Ravenswood Ave. Suite 101, Chicago IL 60640
