Registration Requirements

1. Membership
All individuals registering for sports are required to have a current community league membership. Memberships are available at all registration events, by emailing our Membership Director, or online at Bring your current COCL membership card. If you are new to COCL, have never registered for community sports or need a new community membership, they will be available for you to purchase. The cost for a family membership is $25.00. This can be paid by cash or cheque.

2. Proof of child's age
Please be prepared to show your child's Alberta health card, birth certificate or passport.

3. Community Service (Fundraising Commitment)
Community service is required for each player registered. Your options will be available at the registration/payment session. One commitment per child, per sport. You will need to provide an un-dated $300 cheque, one per child, made payable to COCL for your fundraising commitment(s). Cheques will be held until a designated fundraising commitment (such as a Bingo, Bottle Drive, or other event) has been worked. Fundraising dates are offered at the time of registration. You will be assigned a fundraiser at the time of registration. If you don't do the fundraiser that was assigned at registration, then your cheque will be cashed.

The COCL executive has the option to reassign designated fundraisers in the case of event cancellations.

Please remember that it is YOUR responsibility to remember the fundraiser dates. An attempt will be made to remind individuals of fundraising dates as a courtesy. Ultimately it is your responsibility to remember.

4. Uniform Deposit (Soccer Only)
COCL provides the jerseys, shorts and socks for the U-6 to U18 soccer teams. A $100 cheque is required for a uniform deposit. Uniform deposits for softball and baseball are collected by the coaches when uniforms are distributed.

5. Coaching
Each sports team needs a volunteer coach. If a coach cannot be found for a specific age group/gender, then a team cannot be formed for that group. Volunteer coaches are exempt from one fundraising commitment, so please volunteer and sign up to coach your child's team. Coaching courses are available for all interested coaches; COCL will reimburse you for the cost of the course.

Please note that if we don`t have enough kids registered for a specific age group/gender, those that have registered will need to be transferred out to another community in order for them to play.

Registration Cancellation Policy

If your child is withdrawing from a COCL sports program, please email us at,, or so we can arrange for reimbursement.  Community memberships are not refundable. Once you have registered, you will be required to fulfill your community volunteer commitment whether your child is playing for COCL or not playing at all, as registering your child means a position on a team is being held. NO EXCEPTIONS. Your registration fee will be refunded in full less a $50 administrative fee, if we are notified prior to the teams being declared. There will be NO REFUNDS after the cutoff.
