Parents Resources



We remind all parents and spectators that the primary reason our young athletes play organized sports is for fun, and competition comes second. Observing your child’s progress and offering positive encouragement will enhance your experience and theirs.

Please exhibit exemplary conduct at games. Avoid profane language, and do not berate players, coaches, or officials. Remember, the game is for the children, not the adults, and negative behavior detracts from everyone's enjoyment.

Applaud good plays made by both your child’s team and the opposing team and show respect for all participants. Opponents are essential for competition; therefore, they deserve our respect. Never berate or ridicule your child for making an error during a game.

We stand against violence in all its forms and urge you to encourage your child to play fairly and be a cooperative team member.

Should a parent's behavior at a game or practice become disruptive, they may be asked to leave the venue. Refusal to comply could result in game forfeiture, player suspension, or ultimately, removal of the player from the program. It is hoped that all parents will act responsibly and understand the repercussions of any inappropriate actions.

Please review and familiarize yourself with the EYBA Code of Conduct and EYBA's Zero Tolerance Policy.

Score/Time Keeping Instructions

Parent Volunteers: The Heart of SLAM

At SLAM, our premier basketball experience is made possible by the unwavering commitment of our parent volunteers. To ensure the smooth running of our games, all parents are required to take turns fulfilling the responsibilities of scorekeeping or timekeeping each week. Your team’s coach will assign these roles, and your participation is essential to our success. 
As a scorekeeper or timekeeper, you play a vital role as a minor official, supporting the game officials. While you may have a favourite team, it's essential to remain neutral and show respect to officials, coaches, and players. Your professionalism ensures a fair and enjoyable game for everyone involved.

Gymnasium Usage Guidelines

We are privileged to access the school gymnasiums in St. Albert and it's imperative that we treat these facilities with the utmost respect. Adhering to the following guidelines is essential for preserving our positive relationships with the schools that generously allow us the use of their spaces. 

  • Treat custodians and school staff with respect at all times.
  • Stay within the designated area of your booking—other school areas are off-limits.
  • Ensure door supervision during entry and exit times, keeping all doors locked. Do not prop open doors under any circumstances.
  • Be present in the school only during your reserved time slot, and remember that set-up and clean-up times must fall within this period.
  • Do not use any school equipment except for net standards provided for volleyball, pickleball, and badminton, which should be returned after use.
  • Only wear clean, indoor shoes in the gymnasium.
  • Water bottles are the only items permitted in the gym; no other food or drinks.
  • It’s your responsibility to clean up and dispose of all trash after your booking.
  • Wi-Fi passwords will not be provided.
  • Ensure you turn off the lights when leaving.
  • Any damages, acts of vandalism, or extra cleaning required will be the user group's responsibility.
  • The City of St. Albert will not be held liable for lost or damaged personal items brought into the facility.
  • The facility is a no-smoking, no-vaping, and no-alcohol zone.
  • Report any accidents or injuries immediately to the facility staff, especially if emergency services are involved.
