Registering an existing youth member as an age-grade player

The following guide is for parents who have completed the membership process – but who’s child is still not registered as a player.

I’m already a member, why do I have to register again?

Player registration is a separate process from TWRFC membership, and is required for any player to participate in competitive rugby (including festivals). This only has to be done once when a player joins the club. Here’s the relevant exert from the regulations…

RFU Regulation 15
15.1.4 Constituent Bodies and/or clubs must ensure that all Age Grade players are registered by completing the RFU Youth Player Registration Form and are on the RFU’s data system within 45 days of their first joining the Club.

I’ve already got a RFU Number…

We still need to you register with TWRFC as players please…having a RFU Number is not the same as being registered to play competitive rugby for TWRFC.

 

I’ve already paid…

We still need to you register with TWRFC as players please…frustratingly having a TWRFC Membership is not the same as being registered to play competitive rugby for TWRFC.  There is no cost to age-grade player registration .

How do I register my children?

Step 1 – Log into GMS and go to the Personal Details tab.  You must login using the parent’s GMS account (not the child’s)

Step 2 – Click ‘Update Family Registration’.  The below dialog will come up.

Step 3 – For each child that isn’t registered click ‘Edit’ and complete the form. Please only do this for children who aren’t already registered as each request submitted causes me avoidable work.

PLEASE NOTE- IT IS IMPORTANT TO SELECT THE ‘PLAYER REGISTRATION REQUEST’ AS THE ACTIVITY TYPE.

That’s it – all done…  to complete registration I need to ‘accept’ the registration. You will get the promised confirmation email only when I have completed my bit.

I’ll typically do this in batches every few days.  I can see who needs accepting directly on the system – so no need to tell me via email.
