It is one of the lone remaining organizations that discriminate against girls in football. The ability of a girl to be able to participate and compete safely has been proven. The rule, as it stands now, will prevent any girl in the future to participate in and be part of a CYO football team.

      Kids should be able to participate in whatever they want regardless of gender or race. They are taught discipline and respect for others. The archaic policy in the rulebook needs to be updated to reflect current times.
