Football Alberta Anti-Harassment and/or Maltreatment Form
Football Alberta is committed to the safety and well-being of all members in our association. If you are a member and/or parent/guardian of a member and have exhausted all avenues from within your club/team or league and would like to register a complaint about any type of harassment or maltreatment existing on one of our members clubs/teams/associations, please click on the below link to download the form and receive instructions on how to submit. Please note that all complaints regarding issues arising on high school football teams should not be sent to Football Alberta. Instead, they would need to go to the school, school board, superintendent and possibly the Alberta Schools' Athletic Association as that is where the governance for that level of play lies.
BEFORE PROCEEDING: NOTE that it is expected that the complaint should initially be registered at the level it occurred at and all avenues of resolution should be sought and recorded at the club and/or league level prior to rising to Football Alberta’s attention. Please do not start the process at the Football Alberta level unless you have exhausted all reasonable attempts at resolution and the club/league level. You will need documentation of these attempts at resolution including names and positions involved to fill in the form. Also, know that this is not an anonymity situation. You will be required to identify yourself and provide witnesses. As well, please understand part of the process may include a referral to the Sports Help Line if no resolution is found at our level. All registered complaints will be dealt with quarterly, unless emergency conditions exist. Complainants should be aware that Football Alberta role in this matter is to determine whether the complaint should be referred to third parties such as the Alberta Human Rights Commission or the local police in the area the incident occurred. Should a complaint be deemed an emergency situation it will immediately be referred to local police.
Although we take all concerns seriously, our focus will be on resolving issues of alleged harassment or maltreatment of the players and get it to professional attention (i.e., the police). Football Alberta is not an official investigative body, nor certified to determine what is and is not a crime or human rights abuse. The Committee will only be able to respond to what is recorded on the Complaint Form and refer its contents accordingly. Football Alberta will not take complaints about the following issues:
