New This Season
Two-payment Installment – Blizzard will be implementing a two-payment fee structure to assist the burden on many families during the busy fall season. Registration fees will be due in full upon registration fees with technical fees debited on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 (technical fee costs vary depending on what tier players make – details below).
Note Regarding Fee Increases – Blizzard is very sensitive to keeping our programs affordable and accessible to families all while providing a superior product for your child’s soccer experience. Due to an increase in CMSA fees and gym rental fees from the City of Calgary we have implemented a small fee increase for the indoor season. This is our first fee increase since the indoor 2015/16 season. We do not want any child to not reach for their soccer dreams due to financial constraints and encourage you to contact us regarding options for financial assistance.

Part C – Volunteer Fee $100.00
At the time of registration, Blizzard collects a $100 volunteer deposit, then parents choose a position (see list under volunteer section) they would like to help with. Once your family has taken on a volunteer position, the deposit will be refunded during the season.
Part D – Facility Fee $20.00
Blizzard’s long-term goal is to develop our own Club facility. The Club’s Board of Directors includes a Facilities Committee which continues to seek out potential opportunities. Funds are set aside from the Facility Fee to help the Club reach this goal.
Other Expenses: Parents should be aware that once they have registered for soccer and have been placed on a team at their child’s appropriate level, there may be further costs during the season. For example, some teams may be registered to participate in a tournament or teams may participate in strength and conditioning sessions all at extra expense. In addition, some teams in our U11 to U13 age group participate in a Spring Outdoor Prep boot camps sessions in Penticton. Most teams participate in several fundraising initiatives to offset the costs where possible.

Blizzard wants every child to have the opportunity to play soccer, regardless of a family’s economic situation. If you require financial assistance, please apply to Kidsport Calgary prior to or at registration. The application forms are available at www.kidsport.ab.ca.

Blizzard has a strict refund policy. Once you register with our Club, you may withdraw your application for a full refund minus $100 administration fee before a specific date depending on the season. This date will normally be 48 hours before the CMSA Team Entry date. If, however, you have attended an evaluation session, no refund will be eligible unless it is for a season ending injury as noted by a doctor.
