All fully paid participants will receive raffle tickets to sell and will keep the proceeds. Cataract is looking for serious student athletes and families to join its football family. As for our elite levels of play, Cataract is accepting the registrants on a first come, first serve basis due to maximum roster size 25 players and there is a mandatory play rule so all players will play substantial minutes in every game.
Every year, Cataract Nation competes against some of the nation's top programs and this year Cataract will compete to earn a chance to play for the AYF National Championships in Universal Studios, Florida and participate in the preseason Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy's kickoff tournament and the Academy's World Youth Football Championships in Canton, Ohio at the emerging $800 million state of the art facilities known as the Pro Football Hall of Fame Village. By participating with Cataract Youth Football student athletes will be given resources and training unlike no other program in Western New York.
