Ensuring the integrity of the game is at the forefront of BAFA’s work.


BAFA’s Disciplinary Code sets the standards by which we expect our members to abide.

Anti Doping

BAFA is currently establishing a new education and training strategy in line with UK Anti Doping guidelines and in support of the work being done by IFAF, our global governing body. We are committed to a drug-free sport where people win fairly.


The Equality Standard is a framework, developed by the Home Country Sports Councils,  to guide sports organisations towards achieving equality. It assists organisations in developing structures and processes, assessing performance, and ensuring continuous improvement in equality.

BAFA is committed to working towards each of the four levels:

  • Foundation level
  • Preliminary level
  • Intermediate level
  • Advanced level
Government Charter

BAFA endorses the Government Charter (2011) which seeks to tackle homophobia and transphobia in sport.
