Registration for clubs begins in the late Summer or Fall (depending on whether the club offers a dryland program). Clubs must have a minimum of 10 members to be a member club of CCS. Fees are $15 per member and clubs are invoiced in 2 installments, one in October and one is February. Clubs use Zone4.ca to register their members. Please contact the CCS office to set up.

We are also required by Sask Sport to include an Aboriginal Declaration on membership forms. Please contact the CCS office to obtain a copy of the info for the declaration.
