Amputee Football Association Scotland has committed to creating opportunities, promoting accessibility and inclusiveness in football for young people in Scotland who have an amputation or limb differences.
We are working closely with our friends at the SFA and the SPFL Trust to roll out a junior amputee football development programme in partnership with football clubs and community trusts across Scotland. The programme will consist of:
· regular junior open training days
· amputee football taster sessions in our nationwide roadshow
· summer football camps
In March 2016, the European Amputee Football Federation (EAFF) held the first ever European Amputee Football Junior Camp in Dublin, hosted by the Ireland Amputee Football Association.
35 junior stars benefited from this unique inaugural event that enabled them to enjoy quality coaching, have lots of fun and meet new friends.
In July 2017, 2018 and 2019, we were delighted to send a number of our Junior players to Warsaw, Rome and subsequently Hoffenheim for the EAFF Junior Camp where they spent three days training, having fun and improving their ball skills with more than 90 other junior amputee footballers from across Europe.
This annual event run by EAFF continues to grow. In 2020 we hope to send another group of juniors to benefit from the EAFF Camp in Dublin, Germany.
For the first time ever, AFAS will host its own mini-Junior Camp in May 2020, with our friends from Italy and Ireland joining our juniors in the Scottish Capital for a weekend of football and fun. Anyone interested in supporting the camp, volunteering or taking part should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
