Equity, Discipline and Ethics

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

Anti Doping

BAFA are 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.

Government Charter

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


BAFA's Disciplinary Code sets the standards by which we expect our members to abide. A copy can be found here.
