Funding Assistance

To ensure that no athlete stays on the sidelines because of a financial issue, the Spartans will assist parents in funding.  Fundraising opportunities are provided to support your athlete, including working bingos, casinos, and other fundraising opportunities.  We also have an Athletes Assistance Fund and would be pleased to help you apply for Kid Sport.  Kid Sport Calgary provides financial support up to $250 per child per calendar year towards sport registration fees.  Calendar year runs from January 1 – December 31. For further information, please check the website http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/calgary/ or email the Spartans Administrator for assistance at admin@calgaryspartans.com.

Member Commitments

The Spartans Track and Field Club funds its program through fees as well as funds generated from casinos and bingos.  The success of our club – and our athletes depends on the willingness of parents to volunteer.  To support the programs, the Spartans requires each member or their parent to fulfill their volunteer commitment yearly. A one-time Volunteer Commitment Deposit (VCD) of $200 is charged to each full-year athlete ($50 for the summer monthly athletes). This deposit is returned upon withdrawal from the club if volunteer commitments are fulfilled.  A new Volunteer Commitment Deposit (VCD) of will be charged yearly if volunteer commitments are not fulfilled. Click here for volunteer information.

Positive Balance Athletes Account

To avoid negative balances and failure to pay fees associated with meets and travel, The Calgary Spartans Track Club requires full year members (excluding athletes receiving Athletes Assistance) to maintain a positive balance in their athletes account prior to registering to compete in meets +/- travel. When an account has a negative balance, the athlete will be notified to make a payment to their athletes account. Athletes Account balances that are not a result of Bingo or Casino funding will be refunded upon withdrawal from the club.
