Registering with the British American Football Association

Every year all our players, coaches and staff must register online with the British American Football Association (BAFA). This is mandatory. It provides basic insurance in the case of player injury and is needed for competition entry – without it, players, coaches and staff won’t appear on the roster for games. We also cannot permit unregisted individuals to practice or coach as this will invalidate our team insurance and is against BAFA rules.

The online registration portal is now open, and registration must be completed before the end of November for youth players still practicing by this point, and by return to practice in January for all others. The process for returning players is simple, and doesn’t take long to complete. Follow our easy instructions to complete your registration.

Please note, new players will have three trial sessions, after which BAFA registration must be completed in order to continue practicing or receive kit if under 18.
