Football Alberta Membership Info


2020 Membership Update

PDF Version of this page

As of June 12th, Football Alberta is allowing organizations to resume football activities as long you adhere to the Return to Play regulations outlined in our Stay and Play guidelines found on our website. (www.footballalberta.ab.ca). 

For the 2020 Season membership invoicing and collection will be completed differently as we are still uncertain what the season will look like and how participant registration will go.  However you still require membership and insurance to resume team activities.

Our insurance provider has endorsed our Stay and Play Guidelines and will provide insurance to all Football Alberta members who are registered with our office.  Our insurance coverage/cost does not change based on practices or games and covers an entire 12-month period.  At this point we will be charging you based on 50% of the normal registration numbers (see below) and will determine final numbers in the fall.  Players must be registered with our office before any team activities can resume and payment must be made within 2 weeks of starting. 

Steps to Being Registered, Insured & Cleared to Play 

  1. Email a team list with all players and coaches Names & DOB to admin@footballalberta.ab.ca.
  2. Payment made within 2 weeks of starting any team activities. Invoices being sent by FA Office.
  3. Football Alberta waiver signed by all players and staff (team keep your waivers).

Football Alberta Membership Value Statement

Football Alberta Membership consists of 2 plans: Plan #1 provides annual team membership and insurance for all players and team personnel. Plan #2 is available for teams that do not require insurance. Please note that all minor teams; bantam, peewee and atom are required to obtain Football Alberta insurance to be eligible for Minor Provincials.

Membership Value Statement

League Coordinators & Team Managers

Membership and insurance runs on the calendar year (January 1 to December 31). It is easiest for league/team administrators to register players at the start of the year for gym nights in January & February and then continue to register players as they join the team thru spring camp and summer and fall. It is extremely important for the welfare of players and team personnel that insurance is valid (and thus paid for) as soon as you start registration. Please note that the insurance policy provides both accident and liability coverage and is valid regardless of how long players are with your team (one day, one week or all season).

On-Line Login

Each league or team administrator was given a username & password to enter the system to register players and team personnel. You may delete players who are not returning and add players/personnel joining the team. If you’ve misplaced your login information, or to change your league administrator, please contact Sally at our office.
