Joining the CDMFA League

Any Registered Society desiring to become a Participating Association of the CDMFA for the first time must apply in writing to the Board, requesting acceptance as a Participating Association by October 31 of the year preceding in which it wishes to participate. Such application must include full payment of the Performance Bond Fee(s) for that year. Upon acceptance as a Participating Association, that Society will also be then subject to all Fees, Rules, Directives, Policies, and Procedures of the CDMFA which are then in effect. Any acceptance of a first time Participating Association must be approved by a seventy-five percent (75%) vote of the Board.


Upon acceptance as a Participating Association for the first time, that Society must supply the Board with a list of no less than twenty (20) eligible players per member team, no later than February 28th for Midgets or June 30 for Atom, PeeWee or Bantam of the first year of participation. It will be the responsibility of each Participating Association to thereafter provide the Registrar with confirmation of any changes to the membership list for that Participating Association.

Player Divisions

There are 4 formal age groups for minor football in Alberta. Atoms (players who turn 10 or under before December 31). Peewee (players who turn 11 or 12 during the current year) and Bantam (players who turn 13, 14 or 15 during the current year and who are not entering grade 10 in September of this year). Midget players will be graduating Bantams (grade 9’s) and Grade 10 and 11 players who are not turning 18 in the calendar year. 

There are no weight classes for minor football in Alberta. The decision to play rests with the child and the parent. Please do not ask for your child to play at a lower age class because he/she is small. There are no exceptions to this rule as set by Football Alberta in order to be eligible for Provincial playoffs.

Participating Association Player Registration

Clubs hold REGISTRATION at different times of the year, mostly in spring (Midgets in Winter). There are no registrations past the 2nd Wednesday of September as the rosters are finalized that day. Rosters may hold up to 50 players but most team rosters contain somewhat fewer. Both BOYS and GIRLS are encouraged to participate. You will be required to complete the appropriate registration forms.

You may be asked to bring evidence of the registrant’s date of birth (Birth Certificate) that will be verified by the designated registrar for the club you are registering to play with. For Bantam and Midget level football, you may be requested to bring the latest Report Card showing only the name of the player, school and grade that the player will be in for the current calendar year. In compliance with Information Privacy, please know that no copies of this information will be collected.
