The Alberta Association for Family Recreation and Sport o/a FunTeam Alberta is an umbrella organization, operating as a registered association, under the Societies Act. We have bylaws, GST registration, and recognition as a provincial recreational association in the Alberta Sport Recreation Parks and Wildlife Foundation. FunTeam groups are established in each community under our umbrella, and may utilize our many resources and affiliations.
FunTeam has a voluntary Board of Directors, and 2 office staff to govern, facilitate and administer community groups, and association operations.
We offer flexibility to each group so that they may establish their group to meet the unique needs of their community and participants.
FunTeam has an arsenal of administrative and promotional materials available to group leaders from membership forms to our website. Resources are another great asset with everything from equipment to funding sources.

Due to the nature of FunTeam activities and a large membership base in the province, liability cost and membership fees can be kept to a minimum. Fundraising is not mandatory in FunTeam, but we do offer fundraising ideas and invitations to events to those members who are interested.
Risk management is an important part of FunTeam operations therefore we possess volunteer policies and procedures, and safety guidelines for the protection of our volunteers, participants, and staff.
Healthy Lifestyle Promotion
FunTeam programs help encourage people of all ages and abilities to lead active, healthy lifestyles. It is likely children with active parents will continue to lead active healthy lifestyles throughout their adult years. Children and their parents can enjoy spending quality time together while participating in sport, and adults can increase or maintain a healthy fitness level.
