Cumberland Oxford Community League


Spring Sports Registration

The 2018 spring sports season is fast approaching, so the time has come to get your child registered!! The outdoor season includes soccer, softball and baseball and runs through May and June, with the possibility of extending into July with post-season play.  

Registration dates have been scheduled as follows: Saturday, February 10, 2 - 6 pm, Thursday, March 1, 6 - 8 pm, and Thursday, March 8, 6 - 8 pm, at Gateway Alliance Church (13931 140 Street).

Registration details are available on the Soccer, Baseball and Softball pages.



Bingo Director and Assistants Needed


COCL is in urgent need of filling the positions related to the bingo fundraisers. Bingo is our bread and butter fundraising event. Much of what the community league is able to do for the community - from programs to playgrounds - is a result of the money that Bingo provides. Without the bingo fundraisers we would have to significantly reduce the amount of programming and projects as well as significantly raise the fees for programs like soccer or softball. One advantage to community sports is the affordability. The loss of the bingo fundraiser seriously puts that in jeopardy.
We are asking for community minded individuals to join our board and fill these positions. We run 12 bingos a year – usually one a month and the bingo chairperson (director or assistant) will be responsible for organizing the volunteers for that event by assigning positions, counting money and floats, and ensuring the event is as smooth as possible. They will need to be at the hall for 4:30 pm until the paperwork is balanced at the end of the event, usually a little after midnight.
We would like three people to share in this role so that the work is spread evenly. Only one director/assistant is needed per event.
If you or someone you know can fulfill this role please contact us as your involvement can make a massive difference to our community. Please contact president@cocl.org for more information.


Outdoor Skating Rinks are Open

Bundle up and lace up those skates, it's time to get out and enjoy COCL's outdoor skating rinks! Rinks have been constructed at Oxford Park (131 St & 155 Ave) and Hudson Park (beside Hilwie Hamdon school on Cumberland Road & 137 St).



Sidewalk Snow Removal

As a winter city, we all know that snow, and the removal of it, is inevitable.  We want to ensure our sidewalks are as safe as possible for those that need to use them. Our Community Standards Bylaw asks that property owners or tenants keep their adjacent city sidewalk clear of snow and ice to the pavement.  It is important to shovel the sidewalk as soon as possible after each snowfall to avoid a buildup that can then be difficult to deal with.

Please note sand can be used as a temporary measure to provide traction in icy areas. Free sand is available at community leagues and other places throughout Edmonton; visit Edmonton.ca for locations. A new sandbox was installed last year at Oxford Park (13040 155 Avenue).

Community members should be aware that there is a $100 fine associated with failure to keep the sidewalks clear of snow, as well, the cost for the contractor to clear the sidewalk is billed back to the property owner.

Check out the City of Edmonton website for more information and helpful resources.


Pets in the City

Being a responsible owner is much more than just giving your pet adequate care, food, water and shelter. You are also responsible for their actions. 

Control, license and clean up after your pet to keep Edmonton safe, clean and healthy for everyone – including you and your pet.

As a reminder, dogs are only allowed to be off-leash within the boundaries of designated off-leash areas. Beyond your yard, please make sure you keep your dog on a leash. You can walk your dog on-leash along any trail on parkland, city boulevards, or area that is signed on-leash.

According to City of Edmonton by-laws, dogs are not permitted on school grounds, playgrounds, sports fields or picnic sites.

Off-leash parks around our community league boundaries include Orval Allen Park and Berm (grassy berm east of 127 St from 153 to 167 Ave, including Orval Allen Park), Caernarvon (south boulevard on 153 Ave from 126 St to Castle Downs Road), and Wellington (west boulevard on 141 St. from 137 to 132 Ave., south side of 132 Ave. and 135 St.).

The City of Edmonton maintains a full listing of off-leash dog parks on their website.
