UCAC provides training and competition opportunities in all athletics events for athletes aged 14 and older. Dino Youth is run in partnership with Dinos Athletic Program at the University of Calgary.
Members must complete UCAC and Athletics Alberta applications for membership through Trackie. Athletics Alberta and Athletics Canada are the governing bodies for Track and Field within Alberta. Athletics Alberta (AA) membership provides liability insurance coverage; therefore athletes are not permitted to train or compete until the AA registration fee is paid.
UCAC Membership Fees
Full Year (October 1 – September 30) = $1,750
Outdoor (April – July) = $700
Membership fees are non-refundable barring exceptional circumstances.
Athletes remit their annual fees through Trackie when they complete their registration. Full year athletes have the option to remit the entire fee at registration or to pay in instalments throughout the year. Athletes also have the option to earn credits to their accounts from events such as bingos and casinos. Athletes can apply these credits to pay for membership fees and competition expenses, provided they have a positive balance of credits in their account on the date that such fees are due.
UCAC Two Week Trial
We recognize that athletes may want to assess whether the training style and program is the right fit for them before committing to a full membership. In order to accommodate, we provide athletes with the opportunity to complete a complimentary two-week trial period.
If you are interested in registering for the two-week trial, please contact our head coach, Doug Lamont. The athlete will be assigned to a training group based on their age, experience and athletic focus.
On the first day of the trial period, please complete registration for the Athletics Alberta Free Two Week Tryout membership. Within the two-week trial period, confirm with the head coach whether the athlete intends to continue. If you elect to continue, continue, register as a member as detailed below.
