Membership & Fees
All IBC members, including IBC Executives who volunteer their services to help manage the club, must pay their membership fee. Club fees for the 2019/20 season are as follows:
An individual membership is available to a person 16 years of age or older by September 30 of the membership renewal year.
Family of 2: $200
Family of 3: $250
Family of 4: $300
Family membership to IBC requires that immediate family members reside at the same address. “Immediate family”, means, in respect of an IBC member:
- The member’s spouse or common-law partner. “Common-law partner” means a person who has been cohabiting with an IBC member in a conjugal relationship for at least one year.
- The member’s children and the children of the member’s spouse or common-law partner. Children must be 16 years of age or older by September 30 of the membership intake year. Children must be under the age of 25 on September 30 of the membership intake year. Children must be enrolled in school if 18 years of age or older.
Accepted methods of payment
Membership fees can be paid by cash or cheque. If paying by cheque, please make the cheque payable to “IBC”.
Member Registration Form & Waiver
When registering as a club member, you will be asked to complete a 2019-2020 Waiver. You may be asked to prove you meet IBC’s age requirements and/or immediate family requirements (if applying for a family membership).
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I cannot make it to renew my membership before the deadline?
If you cannot make it to register, but would like to renew, you may appoint a proxy to register for you. FULL payment on your behalf must be received by the registration deadline. A shoe tag will be given to you when you PERSONALLY hand in a completed waiver. All players must have a shoe tag in order to play.
Returning members who fail to renew in person or via proxy before the renewal deadline will lose their membership.
How do I add an immediate family member(s) to an existing membership?
If you wish to add an immediate family member to your membership, let us know when registering. Your request will be added to a “waiting list” for membership. Add-on members (if any) will be added from the waiting list, first come first served, after the membership renewal deadline, subject to the maximum capacity for IBC. Add-on membership fees and/or waiver amendments will be due before the new member draw (if applicable for the season) or the next scheduled IBC play date (if no new member draw is occurring).
Why do you ask for the first 3 characters of my home postal code?
You will also be asked to provide the first 3 characters of the postal code of your home address. This 3-character grouping, called the Forward Sortation Area (FSA), identifies a specific geographic area within Canada. Collection of the FSA of a club member’s home address allows the City of Edmonton to audit to ensure that at least 75% of IBC’s members reside within the city limit of Edmonton. This then qualifies IBC to book gym time at Edmonton schools.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the collection and use of the FSA, please feel free to contact an IBC Executive.
