New for the 2023/2024 Registration Seasons: Registration now has two parts. You must register and pay for your athlete number with Athletics Alberta at this LINK and with CALTAF on the registration page.
The online registration process will take approximately 10-30 minutes to complete. A separate registration form must be completed for each athlete. Before beginning the registration process, please make sure that you have the following:
You must first register with Caltaf and then register with Athletics Alberta. Both parts must be completed in order to attend your first practice.

Part 2 – To Register With Athletics Alberta
Please click on the following link Athletics Alberta 2024 Membership
Once completed, please email email@example.com with the number.
Taking on Track Meets Together: When it comes to traveling for track meets with the team, athletes are responsible for covering their own expenses. To simplify matters, I’ll handle the travel arrangements and then send you an invoice reflecting the costs.
Facility Fee and Its Silver Lining: Additionally, there’s a $105 facility fee. However, here’s the exciting part – this fee is refundable by contributing your time to work at one bingo event.
Mandatory Athletics Alberta Fee: As a member of Athletics Alberta, our governing body, there’s a mandatory fee ranging from $65 to $110, depending on the athlete’s age. New this year, athletes must register with Athletics Alberta directly. Instructions are below.
Mitigating Costs Together: To make the financial aspects more manageable, we offer various avenues to offset these costs. Bingo and casino opportunities are available, alongside a spectrum of fundraising activities throughout the year. Moreover, an athlete assistance fund is in place, and additional grants like Jumpstart and Kidsport are accessible for those who require assistance.
Remember, we’re committed to ensuring that cost isn’t a barrier to pursuing your passion. Your journey with us is not just about athletics – it’s about growing, thriving, and forging unforgettable experiences as part of the Caltaf family. Feel free to reach out with any questions or for further details. Let’s embark on this journey together!
Here at Caltaf, we strongly believe in the power of community and collaboration. As part of our commitment to fostering a supportive environment for our athletes, we do have a volunteer requirement that we’d like to share with you.
We kindly request that each family contributes to the vibrant Caltaf community by volunteering or officiating at two key events:
Caltaf Track Classic (June): This event is a cornerstone of our calendar, and we encourage each family to lend a hand during this exciting time.
A Meet of Your Choice: We understand the value of flexibility, so we’re letting you choose another meet where you’d like to volunteer. Your involvement not only strengthens our team but also allows you to experience the energy of different events.
New This Year! We’re thrilled to announce a special addition to our volunteering opportunities. The highly anticipated Legion National Championships are taking place right here in Calgary from August 8th to the 12th. We’re actively seeking volunteers for this prestigious event, and trust us, there’s an array of unique roles you can step into. This is an incredible chance to witness firsthand the exceptional talent of the Nationals’ best U16 and U18 athletes up close and personal. Moreover, any volunteering you do for the Legion National Championships can be counted towards your “meet of choice” commitment. This means your time and effort can contribute to both our community and your firsthand experience of national-level competition.
Meeting the Volunteer Requirement and Fees: As of June 30th, if the volunteer requirement has not been fulfilled, a fee of $300.00 will be applied. We want to emphasize that we uphold a firm stance on this requirement.
The Role of Volunteers: Track and Field, along with Caltaf, stands out as one of the most budget-friendly sports in our city. However, much like other sports in Calgary, our operations and events heavily rely on the invaluable contributions of our dedicated volunteers. They’re the lifeblood of our organization, playing a pivotal role in its functioning and success.
The Purpose of the Fee: It’s important to clarify that introducing a volunteer fee is a step we’ve taken with careful consideration. Our aim is to encourage active participation from all members in the volunteering aspect of our community. The fee serves as a mechanism to ensure the smooth execution of our events and operations in the absence of fulfilled volunteer commitments.
Our Shared Goal: We want to assure you that our primary goal is not to impose fees, but rather to create a thriving, inclusive community where members actively contribute. This collaborative approach minimizes our reliance on external assistance and keeps our fees accessible to all.
Ultimately, we believe that by coming together as a community to fulfill the volunteer requirement, we enhance not only the vitality of our events and activities but also the bonds that make Caltaf so special. Thank you for being an integral part of our journey and for embodying the spirit of teamwork and dedication that define Caltaf.
Singlets: A Must-Have Staple
If you’re new to our dynamic Caltaf family, we’re excited to welcome you on board! As part of our uniform, all new athletes are required to snag a Caltaf singlet upon registration. These sporty essentials come at a cost of $65.00. During registration, please follow the provided instructions, and while choosing a size, a rough estimate is just fine for now. We’ll make sure to get the sizing spot-on during a later fitting session.
To ensure a unified and sharp look, we have a specific requirement for the bottoms: black or red shorts. We will let take care of purchasing these as there are so many options.
