We have sponsored the BFA Youth Program since 2004, which aims to improve sportsmanship and instill values in players from a young age, on and off the field. In addition to the Children (ages 7-13) and Youth (ages 14-17) Divisions, our support helps BFA to organise coaching, administration and referee development programs conducted by local and overseas instructors. We are proud of our commitment to youth in Bermuda, which through the BFA Youth Program attracts more than 1,500 youth players each year.
