Ground & Footware
The stunning all-weather surface is possibly the safest playing surface for children to practice and improve their football. Flat-soled football sneakers with good traction, or rubber ‘bobble’ soled futsal shoes are suitable for this surface (please see our Footwear Chart).
In the event of rain, sessions can go ahead.
If there is heavy rain, snow (thick on the ground), lightning, or the ground is in poor condition due to earlier inclement weather the ground must not be used, and the sessions will be cancelled.
Please understand that there will be no refund or make up sessions in the event of cancelled sessions due to the weather/ground condition.
We will inform* you by 3:00 pm if the sessions will be cancelled via our Facebook page**: https://www.facebook.com/BritishFootballAcademy.
*Note: We will inform you only in case of doubtful/inclement weather. Please also understand that we might have to cancel after 3pm if the weather/ground condition worsens after 3 pm.

Q：What happens if it is raining on the day?
A：In cases of inclement weather, please refer to the rain protocol for each venue. Also, by liking our Facebook page, you will quickly receive updates about weather cancellations and more. We will only inform when the sessions are cancelled. If you do not receive a message or see posts about cancellation, sessions will be on.

Q：How do I apply for a trial session?
A：Please fill out the trial request form from here and you will receive an email from us for more infomation.
Q：Can I purchase new pairs of BFA socks/shorts/shirt?
A：The uniform comes in a set (shirt, shorts and socks) therefore we are not able to sell each products individually. Also we cannot provide a different size item (e.g. we cannot provide a 120cm shorts and a 130 cm shirt as a set).
Once you have taken the size/price tags off the uniform, please understand that we cannot exchange it for a different sized one.
Q：What is BFA’s make up policy?
A：In cases where a member is absent from their session or a session is cancelled by the location due to extenuating circumstances, it is impossible for us to provide refunds or adjustment to your future fee. Also, we cannot offer make up sessions on other days/locations for sessions you are absent for personal reasons.
