Registration and Fee Structure


Registration and Membership Options:

The Spartans have three types of memberships for a variety of age groups from young children to Masters. These are:

Full year memberships– all events (includes indoor and outdoor training) for September through July (See information below). Indoor training is offered at the Olympic Oval and Jack Simpson at the University of Calgary. Because there is a cap on the number of athletes allowed at the University of Calgary, full year training is granted on a first come, first served basis.

Summer monthly memberships– all events (outdoor only) for April through July. See information below.

Cross country season (outdoor only) memberships for Fall season (only) at a cost of $200.

Fees depend on type of membership, facility and Athletic Alberta fees. Parents and athletes 18 years of age and older may choose to work Bingos to offset their costs.

Athletics Alberta Memberships are required to train and compete and may be acquired on their website at www.athleticsalberta.com.

Please note: The Calgary Spartans reserve the right to accept or decline membership applications and memberships may not be transferred or assigned. Any athlete account balances from previous seasons must be paid in full prior to new season registration.

If you are a new athlete, for further information, and before registering, please email our Registrar at registrar@calgaryspartans.com.

Fall Training – When, Where and Who?

Groups will move indoors approximately November 1 depending on weather. New athletes please email our Registrar at Registrar@calgaryspartans.com who will help find the right coaching group for you.

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 KidSport. KidSport 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 and adult athletes to volunteer. To support the programs, the Spartans requires each member or their parent to work:

  • one casino approximately every 18 months
  • three volunteer shifts per year (approximately 4 hours per shift – no experience required) or
  • to volunteer for a position on the Spartans Board (meetings held once per month for approx 2 hours, with additional time spent on projects)
  • to volunteer assistance for our media (photographs, videos) at track meets (any training required will be provided prior to the meet) or
  • to assist as a chaperone at out of town meets and/or a track camp

A one-time Volunteer Commitment Deposit (VCD) of $250 is charged to each full-year athlete. This deposit is returned upon withdrawal from the club if volunteer commitments are fulfilled. Members will be charged a fine against their VCD if commitments are not fulfilled. Click here for volunteer information.
