We are BACK!
The British American Football Coaches Association have been working around the clock behind the scenes preparing for our National Coaching Convention at Keele University from 8-10 July 2022.

This event is free to attend for all BAFCA and BAFA members and will include speakers focusing on all codes of the sport, an indoor demonstration space, football specific exhibitors and onsite refreshments / food options, to ensure you don’t miss a minute of the action.

We are also delighted to announce we are working with BAFA to bring a day of provision for club management and support staff on the Saturday of the convention. This will include information on club development, safeguarding, positive parent culture and a ‘townhall meeting’ session with BAFA CEO Pete Ackerley where you can hear about BAFA’s long-term vision and strategy and ask questions.
