Why Become a Community League Member?
It's Where Neighbours Meet and Great Things Happen!
Support Your Community League
Fees collected from membership sales provide much-needed funds for community leagues to accomplish their mandate of bringing community residents together and improving the community and the quality of life for all residents.
Leagues accomplish this through organizing various recreational, educational and sports programming, hosting community events, developing amenities such as water parks and community halls and by being the voice of the community when it comes to civic engagement with the City of Edmonton.
What you Get In Return
Your purchase of a membership provides you with reduced rates to city recreational facilities through the Community League Wellness Program*, gives you the opportunity to know your neighbours through organized sports participation and community events, plus gives you a voice in the shaping of your community.
Many leagues also arrange further benefits with local non-city amenities and businesses. In many cases, members get reduced rates on their community hall rental, so make sure to check with your league to see what else they offer.
Periodically, special events happen within Edmonton and the organizers offer reduced ticket rates to community league members.
