We offer a free two-week trial where you are welcome to join Spartans track team practices before committing to club membership. This is an opportunity for you to meet with Spartans athletes and coaches and to get to know our training programs before making the registration commitment.
If you are a new athlete, before registration and for further information please contact our Athlete Coordinator. They will be pleased to welcome you to the Calgary Spartans, help you find the right coach and program and help you with the registration process to access the free trial.
Depending upon your previous athletic experience and choice of event(s), you may have the opportunity to train in a couple of different groups.
Please check our Programs and find out what group you are interested in.
Complete the club registration process (Athlete Registration). When you get to the end, select the Free Trial option rather than submitting payment.
3. Register with Athletics Alberta on the first day of your trial
Once you have spoken to our Athlete Coordinator and you have decided to take part in the FREE two-week trial, participants must complete the Athletics Alberta Membership Form available online on the Athletics Alberta membership website. Do this on the first day of your trial, as it is good for two weeks only. When registering please select “2 Week Trial” to get the free membership, and put “Calgary Spartans (CALS)” in the Request Club field.
When you finish your two-week trial, please contact the registrar and let her know whether or not you would like to continue. If you do not wish to continue, she will remove your registration. If you would like to register with the club, please let her know. She will post the fees owing; you can then log into your Sport Manager and pay your outstanding balance. You can reach the registrar at email@example.com.
Doing a trial in September, October, November, January, May will allow the athlete to maximize their experience and minimize venue closures/ coaches out of town for track meets. June is an okay time to sign up for the 2-week trial, and July is discouraged as track season is finishing up.
Yes. We try to set up your trial when you will be able to attend the most practices.
The two-week trial is merely a taste of the group practice plan for that moment in time. It is to give an athlete a chance to try out the club prior to signing up with the club.
Two Week trials must be completed through the Athlete Coordinator or Registrar – please do not just show up to the track, we shall have to turn you away with instructions to sign up and return another day! Email the Athlete Coordinator for more information.
For all new inquiries, assistance with any of our program selections and athlete orientation please contact the Athlete Coordinator.
