Vision, Mission and Values


Engage, Educate, Energise… These are the three pillars of what we do. Our goal is to grow a love and understanding of the game for players, coaches, students and the whole football community.

Coaches are the catalyst of the passion, intensity, joy, confidence and sense of community, which football brings to all those involved. BAFCA is dedicated to making the game better and safer through coach education. Nothing should stand in the way of a player’s safety, wellbeing and excitement for the sport. Working with our national governing body BAFA and other key partners we support the evolution and growth of the sport through coach education standards and best practice, to advance coach and player development. Our commitment to develop a safer game inspires us to provide the best qualifications, resources and programmes, keeping the spirit and integrity of the game alive for everyone who enjoys the fun and benefits of playing football.
