I am a parent of 2 children that have had the beneficial pleasure of being at your centre.
BICFA has played a very important part of our lives. Since joining 3 years ago not only have my sons gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about football, they have gained some very valuable life skills. They have learnt about respect (not just to others but themselves too), positive conduct, determination, confidence/self belief are just a few. BICFA promotes such a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle.
The coaching staff are an absolute fantastic set of people. Each of you working with the same ethos. The fact alone that you like academies are not just interested in the football side of life for all children but continually demand the same behaviours outside of it. This has created the opportunity for trainees to become very mature in all life aspects and more independent thinkers.
The opportunities given to not just my own children but the whole centre has been second to none. The challenges set are individual to each child’s needs. This, I’m sure, is what dedication and commitment is all about and once again I thank you for that.
Being an inner city development centre you have reached many different communities who may not have had opportunities like this.
You have helped teach my sons that failure is not a negative. It’s a part of life that can be improved upon.
With a 3rd child now at BICFA, I’m sure the future years will yield another fantastic child. It’s been a magnificent journey which has seen my 2 sons reach academy level. You provided them with the right tools and attitude. For that, I’d finally like to say how valuable the centre is to me and my children.
