Age grade registration (up to and including U18s) is changing for this season...
Age Grade Player Registration is a fully online annual process for club players between U6 to U18. RFU Regulation requires players to be registered online each season within 45 days of the start of the season or from first joining the club.
This simple process involves a players’ parent / guardian registering their child on an annual basis on the RFUs Game Management System (GMS) and being approved by the Club Registrar.
The process ensures that parents and players are in control of their own data and unique individual record through their lifetime in rugby. It provides more consistent, accurate and up-to-date information for clubs and the RFU to help players and parents enjoy their Age Grade Rugby and transition into the adult game.
Removing paper form completion and storage reduces the burden on everyone, streamlines the process significantly and ensures GDPR compliance from a data security and retention perspective. This also brings the process more in line with adult player registration helping the players, parents and volunteers in the Age Grade and senior sections of our rugby clubs and in particular, streamlining the workload of our Club Registrars.
