Please note, registrations for players under 16 years of age must be completed by a parent or guardian.

1. Go to and click on ‘New Member’

new-member-22. Your profile page will then be brought up. Please do not select a club at this point. The first step here is to add your profile picture. This needs to be a passport style photo, a clear image of your face. Please be aware, a group photo, or a photo with you wearing helmet etc will not be accepted and may result in you not appearing on your game day roster. As well as photo upload there are three sections within this page that need completing. Profile, Member Details and BAFA Membership.

Remember, if you play for one team and also coach with another within the club, 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.

You will then need to upload ID in the Upload ID section.

Please update your profile with current proof of ID. The system requires two items to be uploaded (upload them as seperate items – not in one batch!), one of which needs to 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 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 then additional photo ID may be requested.

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

5. Once you have uploaded your details you will see notification at the bottom that ID is pending approval. This can be ignored for now as it is just reference for you that the documents have been uploaded on to your profile and ID does not need to be approved for your to complete your registration. Scroll down and select Finish.
