Age Grade Player Affiliation (formerly known as Registration) is done online and is FREE

All Age Grade players have been unaffiliated (de-registered) for season 21/22 in line with the annual Age Grade affiliation process that requires parents/guardians to affiliate their child annually.  Parents/guardians simply need to log in and complete the Renew Affiliation form for their child.

Age Grade Player Affiliation is an online annual process for club players between U6 to U18. RFU Regulation 15 requires players to be affiliated annually online each season.  For parents of individuals U5 and below; the child’s account can be added to GMS and attached to a club but there is no requirement to formally affiliate. 

Using the online affiliation and sign up process in GMS removes the need for paper forms, reduces administrative burden, increases data accuracy and places the ownership/update of data with the parents which complies with the RFU Minimum Data Standards.

Parents / players / coaches - you need to re-register (U6 to U18 players) for the 2021/22 season:
