Please check out the "Protect Your Player Program" and ask the Registrar any questions you may have!
All players must be fully registered and fees must be received before equipment is issued, or any athlete is allowed on the field.
Registration dates and fees are set every year by the LDMFA Executive. The Registrar will provide information and forms to all those who are interested in playing football with “The Cats”. Printable forms will also be available on this website.
Along with a completed registration form, players of all levels must show a copy of their Birth Certificate and/or Alberta Health Care card (to confirm their age). Players eligible for Bantam must also show a copy of their report card at registration (to confirm their grade).
Cheques: Where possible, all payments should be made by credit card using the online registration system (accepting Visa, Visa Debit, MC, and MC Debit) debit card or cash. Personal cheques are only accepted as deposits for Volunteer Commitment, and Equipment deposits. All cheques are to be made payable to Leduc and District Minor Football Association (or LDMFA). All returned cheques will be subject to a $25.00 NSF fee.
Equipment Deposit: A post-dated cheque will be required as an equipment deposit (amount and date set annually by the Executive). The equipment issued to each player “must” be returned to the equipment trailer in a clean, laundered condition as well as in a good state of repair. There is a $50.00 cleaning charge for equipment not returned in an acceptable condition. Equipment deposits are only required at the Atom, Peewee, and Bantam levels.
Jersey Deposit: A post-dated cheque will be required as a jersey deposit (amount and date set annually by the Executive). The jersey issued to each player “must” be returned to the equipment trailer in a clean, laundered condition. A jersey deposit is only required at the Novice level.
IF THE EQUIPMENT/JERSEY IS NOT RETURNED BY THE REQUIRED DATE, OR IF EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN DAMAGED, THE EQUIPMENT/JERSEY DEPOSIT CHEQUE WILL BE CASHED. THE PLAYER’S REGISTRATION PRIVILEGE MAY BE SUSPENDED.
Each year, LDMFA encourages active involvement by requiring a “volunteer commitment” deposit, which is returned when the set amount of "sharing the load" is completed. (See Volunteer page for this years options) and the Dibs page to sign up for your commitment.
Association Fundraising: (See Fundraising Page for this years options) It is important that Leduc & District Minor Football Association maintain a reasonable registration fee. To allow for that and the continued successful operation of the Association, each year LDMFA authorizes "required" fundraisers that are part of the registration agreement. Fundraising fees (amounts and date set annually by the Executive) may be required to ensure that each player/family fully participates in these programs. The fundraising fees can be recovered with participating in the fundraising options or you can choose to opt out and pay the fee without participating in the fundraisers. In exceptional years, LDMFA may be left with little choice but to authorize additional required fundraising mid-season.
Team Fundraising: Each team may also choose to do fundraising for special event(s) just for their team. The Team Director and/or Team Manager will have more information on “team” fundraising activities.
AS PER LEAGUE REQUIRMENTS, ALL FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED (ONLINE OR PAPER COPIES), DOCUMENTS VIEWED, PAYMENT ARRANGED AND DEPOSIT CHEQUES SUBMITTED TO THE REGISTRAR BEFORE THE REGISTRATION IS COMPLETE.
When a player is registered with the Leduc and District Minor Football Association, he/she is insured through Football Alberta (details of the coverage is available on request). Accident insurance and ambulance service will apply once all other forms of coverage, AHC, Blue Cross, and private coverage have been exhausted. Insurance coverage for coaches, trainers, and club executive is also provided through Football Alberta.
It is for insurance reasons that non-insured individuals (including parents, siblings, etc.) are not allowed on the fields of play during practices and games.
FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES, A PLAYER CAN NOT BE PERMITTED TO PRACTICE OR PLAY IF THEIR REGISTRATION IS INCOMPLETE. NO EXCEPTIONS !!!
The registration fee includes a team/individual photo. PICTURES WILL ONLY BE TAKEN ON THAT DATE. Alternate dates are not always possible.
A WITHDRAW FORM MUST BE SUBMITTED AND ALL EQUIPMENT MUST BE RETURNED PRIOR TO THE ISSUE OF ANY REFUND. No refunds shall be awarded after the date(s) set annually by the LDMFA executive (see LDMFA RPP's refund policy). Any exceptions, such as medical reasons or moving to a new community, will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the Executive at the earliest opportunity.
