Der SAFV Update - April 2018


Dear Team Presidents, staff, players and fans of our league,


SAFV is excited about the season in progress now! 


Since the end of last season, the Vorstand has had a lot of thought-provoking meetings and discussions on the future of SAFV.  Needless to say, we are excited in making headway in changes of our league.  We strive to improve the basic fundamental structuring of SAFV and from that solid foundation, build our vision to make American football in Switzerland great again!


SAFV is a full member of Swiss Olympic and a full member of the international Federation of American Football.  American football in Switzerland is well on our way to becoming further recognized that through our league, we build teams of international accomplishments and successes.  All three of our National teams, adult tackle, U19 tackle and flag football teams have respectively placed third in their most recent international competitions. 


Our youth is essential to sustaining our growth.  We have envisioned a plan to strengthen our ethics platform to ensure our players are properly train with qualified coaches and trainers. Our Medical Advisor board update the executive board on matters pertaining to player health and safety. Our referees are all certified internationally and are instrumental in keeping the rules of NCAA play are complied with. 


Cosmetically, with the intent to improve the site, we have amended our SAFV website.  Our website is a work in progress and SAFV appreciates your assistance by providing solutions to help improve the website as our season progresses.  Ultimately, the SAFV website will be in German, French and English.  Teams will be able to contribute news-worthy articles directly to the SAFV website. This project also hopes to provide statistics of NLA teams and league leaders during the season.  There are so many positive possibilities to further enhance our website, which really have us excited!  So please be patient, please give us ideas to make our website better and please give us your news-worthy articles to post on our SAFV website.


Thank you,

Glenn Chase
