                             Tournament  HISTORY

For 32 years until 2016 the Niagara Falls Cataracts Hockey Tournament was operated by lifelong Niagara Falls resident Ralph Biamonte. Ralph retired after the 2016 Tournament and Ralph's long time friend Winston Auld took over coordinating the Tournament.  Ralph assisted with this transition.

The new committee promises to do it's best to keep this great tournament running as smoothly as in previous years and with as competitive divisions as possible. Winston brought 39 years of experience to the table from the Auld Reid Tournament that he has been involved with since it started in 1977.  In 2018 the Cataracts hosted 78 teams.

The Tournament arenas are located in close proximity to the main action places in Niagara Falls. All Hotels and Casinos are within a 5 to 10 minute drive to the arenas.

When Teams Apply they must submit their Roster at the same time. The Tournament needs your Roster when seeding teams. We look at the Age and Experience of each player when seeding teams. We also have the past history of many teams that played in the Cataracts previously. 

Hotels: A big part of the Cataracts Tournament is donating money to a number of Charities in Niagara Falls each year. In that regard the Tournament secures advantageous hotel room rates in advance for participating teams. We send the list of hotels to each team when they Apply and this list of Sponsoring Hotels is also available by clicking on 'Hotels' above. The Tournament needs you to support these Sponsoring Hotels. This gives the Tournament much needed funds for the many charities. The Tournament donated over $16,000.00 to Charities from last year's tourney so Please support the hotels on our list so we can increase these donations in 2019.
