BAFRA was one of the initial organisations that were formed in the early 1980s to meet the needs of a growing interest in American football in Britain. It is now the longest standing, continuously operating organisation in British American football.
We are therefore running a recruitment campaign to encourage people interested in American Football to get involved. Whether you are an ex-player, coach or just someone with an interest in the sport we would like to hear from you if you feel you have the desire to become an official.
No membership fee is payable on joining. However, there is an initial payment of £30 to cover the cost of training material and a Criminal records bureau check, but £15 of this is refunded through a reduced membership fee in the first renewal after achieving qualified status. In addition, your first two game fees earned are paid directly to BAFRA to cover the cost of insurance and BAFA registration. Please note that no payment is required for those applying for temporary membership.
