For players in our development classes , if they wish to be considered for one of the BFA teams, please speak to the development coach. If  the coach thinks that your child is ready to try out for one of the teams, this can be arranged. For new players, we can arrange a free trial with the teams so please contact us.

Brazilian Football Academy is dedicated to developing soccer schools, classes and teams for boys and girls that engage in various tournaments and friendly matches around Hong Kong and sometimes overseas.

Our aim is to remove the emphasis from winning and focus on long term development of players. By celebrating spirit, sportsmanship, skill and good character participants have an opportunity to realize their full potential as a responsible member of society and as a Football player.

We strive to develop children who are independent, value learning, are creative and enjoy playing football as part of a team. We should remember at all times that the game of soccer is just that–a game.
The number one reason (well documented in a number of studies) children participate in soccer is to have fun. If they don’t have fun, they will soon quit. It is detrimental to the player if there is too much pressure placed on them too early to achieve a result rather than simply experiencing the sheer joy of a youth game.

BFA wants you to respect the game of soccer, respect the players, the opponents, the referee, and the parents. Players should come out of their experience with the coach as better people and better citizens, not just better soccer players. So please take the responsibility of instructing the players with a great deal of care and joy.

Playing time is dependent upon a combination of skill, work ethic, attitude, attendance, effort and commitment at practices as well as the ability to demonstrate a “team” philosophy. We expect all players to work hard in practice to earn their playing time.

Our general philosophy regarding playing time for the U8 to U11 BFA Teams is as follows:

The coach will manage playing time with most players getting approximately the same amount of playing time taking into account the above. Prominent/influential attacking and defending players may get slightly more playing time so that team cohesiveness remains intact but the coach will be mindful of everyone getting quality field time. The A and B squads are in no way fixed and players will move between the two at the team coach’s discretion. No player is guaranteed of a spot in either squad.
