  • Flag – if you are a women’s Opal flag player, or a youth flag player aged 13 years old

Remember, if you play for one team and also coach with another, you MUST register as a player coach. If you coach for multiple teams, then select your primary team when registering – Amanda will make sure you’re on all required rosters.

If you registered last year and your ID was accepted, you will NOT need to load up new ID again. If, for any reason, your ID was rejected (due to poor quality images for example) or has expired since uploaded, you will need to re-upload either one or two acceptable forms of ID, depending on whether one or both items were rejected or expired (upload them as seperate items – not in one batch!). One of these must be be photo ID. Documents accepted:

• Passport
• Driving Licence
• Identity Card
• Utility Bill
• Bank Statement
• Letter from HMRC

‘Other’ documents can include a letter from your local authority, school, univeristy, employer or similar. Please add any reference numbers included on the document. If no reference number is available please enter xxxx. If your document does not include valid from/expiry dates please enter todays date. The expiry date will automatically be populated with the date that we will require your ID to be updated.

If you are under 18 or registering on behalf of someone under 18, we will accept parental details as proof of address. Under 18s can also upload their Bus or Train pass, Student card or Young Scot card. If no form of photo ID exists then a copy of birth certificate will be accepted. However, please note that should you get to any National Finals competitions or an opposing team disputes your identity, then additional photo ID may be requested!

A pending approval message will then appear on the screen if both items have been successfully uploaded. This can be ignored at this time – note, ID does NOT need to be approved for your to complete your registation.

You can also opt in or out to receiving information from BAFA. Members under 16 will also need to confirm parental consent.
