An email will be sent to all registered teams when the training is ready. 

Recommended Safe Sport Training - All participating coaches are encouraged to have completed the free Safe Sport Training module that is available online through the Coach Association of Canada (CAC). Coaches should complete this step as early in their season as possible to be aware of and apply concepts to their respective preparations.


Sportsmanship and Conduct Committee

  • The SCC is the investigation/disciplinary body of CMBA.

  • All participants (Directors/Parents/Coaches/Players) are STRONGLY encouraged to review the SCC section of our website for decision making process, appeal information, full rules, the participation agreement, and the levels of discipline.


**Sportsmanship Deposit**

  • The Sportsmanship Deposit will be returned to the organization at the conclusion of the season if the club/organization is still in good standing with CMBA. Reasons for not being in good standing include:

  • Missing/forfeiting games

  • SCC Discipline that includes suspension(s) of coaches or parents.



  • Schedules will be released by April 12th


Point of Contact
