SYFA First Aid

In 2015 XET became an approved Scottish Youth Football Association (SYFA) Training Provider for sports first aid.

SFA Club Licensing includes the requirement that clubs have at least 1 person on the touchline with all teams who has Sports First Aid training, where a Chartered Physiotherapist is not present. To date there has been a variable standard of qualifications, which have been put forward by member clubs to comply with this
requirement. The Medical Committee was asked to suggest some criteria, which clubs would have to ensure, were met when arranging their provider.
