2018-19 CADS Alberta Member Registration
The registration portal is now open to CADS Alberta Member Registration for the 2018-19 season. All Zones in Alberta will now be registering through this single entry point. Once you select the entry button below, you will have a series of options under which to register. Although we recognize that our membership is largely student / volunteer based, please endure that you register in the most appropriate section. When you select each section, it provides a description specific to your role, for example, a student, athlete, volunteer, certified instructor, certified coach, etc. Please read through the descriptions to ensure you register under the appropriate category. If you are a certified instructor or coach, it is important to register in that section versus as a volunteer, as you will then receive significant cost savings for multiple membership dues within CSIA, CASI, ACA (CSCF). We hope you find the registration process clear to follow.
Also note that this year all payments for membership must be submitted online. Payment at a later time will need be accepted, so in order to be a registered member you will have to have your payment information ready once you select the member login.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Alberta Adaptive Contact Database (AACT)
The Alberta adaptive Contact (AACT) database provides an online resource that allows end users the ability to access information on adaptive programming available in the sport and recreation community that encourage a clearly defined information resource leading to inclusive opportunities for participation at any point along the Long Term Athlete/Participant Development (LTA/PD) pathway.
The end user is anyone interested in accessing participation based information as to inclusive/accessible offerings, whether it is a program, facility or service. For example, a soccer program that offers inclusive adaptive openings, or a yoga program that accommodates accessible yoga instruction.
The project has been initiated through the financial support of both Alberta Sport Connection and Sport Canada through a bilateral funding opportunity that will allow this project to be developed and implemented over the 2018/19 timeframe.
CADS Alberta has partnered with an industry partner to create the AACT database to ensure the sustainable continuity of ongoing data management, and to ensure that all data is current and relevant to the participant, parent, caregiver, etc.
CADS Alberta is excited to be taking a leadership role in Alberta in creating an online solution that can assist all potential CADS Alberta participants, caregivers, family and friends; as well as the extended adaptive needs community for everyone requiring information of this nature across the province. We look forward to collaborating with our many partners and stakeholders in this initiative, include all provincial organizations, municipal interests and any services provider offering accessibility services in Alberta.
The database timeline is to see a live launch in February 2019. For information please contact AACT Database.
