SAMFA Conflict and Dispute Resolution Process

We request that all members use the attached process for addressing concerns/complaints regarding any aspect of football that affects SAMFA players and members.

If your complaint is in regard to football matters that are outside the control of SAMFA, such as league issues controlled by the Capital District Minor Football Association (CDMFA) or officiating which is dealt with through the Edmonton Football Officials Association EFOA), we ask that you bring your concern to the attention of the SAMFA President. The President will assist the member to get in touch with the appropriate Association contact (e.g. for the CDMFA, EFOA or other). SAMFA is committed to supporting the parent with their complaint through to resolution.

In this manner, our Association will become more knowledgeable about our members' concerns and will be able to assist in resolving issues. We thank you for your cooperation.


The CDMFA is our governing body ...

The CDMFA is the Capital District Minor Football Association. The CDMFA is a Registered Society (Alberta) whose members operate the league in order to provide the opportunity for minor football teams in the City of Edmonton and its surrounding communities to play each other in the spirit of friendly competition.

The guidelines listed above, are governed by the policies of CDMFA.  A Code of Conduct is documented for players, parents, coaches, board members and board executive.  Refer to the CDMFA Rules, Polices and Procedures; Item #11.
