* The U18 High School Division will have a shortened season in the fall (seeding round, 1 game per week, and playoffs) between September and mid-November in order to be finished for players to try out for their high school teams. Those who are not playing high school basketball, may play in the Winter season, which runs in January and February. They must register again in late November. We will accept registrations for the winter season from players who did not play in the fall. We encourage those who have graduated from high school to play in one of the many adult leagues throughout Calgary.
Players born between September 1 - December 31, 2002 must provide proof of full-time high school status (i.e. student timetable).
Fee Discount for Large Families
Families with 3 or more children registered in Calwest will pay full fees for 2 children and receive a 50% discount on fees for additional children. The 50% discount will be applied to the lowest-priced fees (i.e. Tyke and High School) among the entire family.
Calwest's uniform/volunteer deposit is $100. The credit card used for online registration will be charged on April 1, 2021 (Dec 1, 2020 for High School) if necessary. Once the uniform is returned and parent volunteer commitment is met, the credit card details will be deleted from our system. Should the uniform not be returned or returned in unusable condition, or if no one in a player's family volunteers, a $100 credit card charge will be processed. Deposits are not required for Tykes.
Please ensure you reside within the Calwest boundaries by referring to the "Boundaries" section of this website. If you do not live within these boundaries, please use CMBA's map to determine which Calgary Minor Basketball Association zone you should be registering in: http://cmba.ab.ca/content/cmba-zones . Calwest will not accept registrations from out of area players.

Proof of Age and Designated Age Groups
All players new to Calwest, as well as first year U11 players must provide a copy of their birth certificate - must be uploaded during online registration. Note that proof of age is not required for Tykes.
Note that players must register in their designated age group (no "play-ups" to older age groups or "play-downs" to younger age groups). The only permissable case of "play-ups" is that of 2nd year U15 players (born 2006) who are in high school; these players may register in the High School age group (for the fall season) if they intend to try out for their high school team.
